    Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!|

    Stem cells in the brain were able to repair damaged areas and restore function when stimulated by a growth-inducing protein, a study by researchers at UC Irvine’s College of Medicine has found. The study, conducted in rats, is the first to show that adult brain stem cells can develop into nerve cells in living adult animals, leading to the replacement of damaged brain tissue.

    “This study is the first to show that stem cells can be induced naturally in large enough numbers and drawn to specific sites of damage, restoring function and replacing damaged cells in the brain,” said Fallon. “The stem cells are already in the brain and other organs in small numbers. They can be stimulated in the brain to develop by a growth factor without the need for transplanting stem cells, embryonic tissue or altered cells from outside; instead, we’ve just stimulated cells that are already there.”
