Repairing the injured brain

The possibility of repairing the brain using transplants immature brain cells (cell therapy) has been demonstrated in many animal species.

A recent study in mice conducted by INSERM researchers in Poitiers indicates that the transplant is much more effective if performed within a week of the injury and not immediately after. That’s very good news. This delay apparently allows time to prepare the necessary neurons for transplantation in the patient. Research is ongoing.
