Turning blood into brain: new studies suggest bone marrow stem cells can develop into neurons in living animals
New studies show that bone marrow cells in mice can migrate into the brain and develop into cells that appear to be neurons. The studies suggest that bone marrow may be a source of neural cells with potential for treating such neurological disorders as Parkinson’s disease and traumatic brain injury.
