A study published last week has shown that adult stem cells derived from ethical sources can be used to create living tissues that imitate the developing human brain. In their findings, published in the science journal Nature, researchers asserted that, by using human stem cells derived from skin cells, they were able to assemble brain-like pieces of living tissue. These stem cells could prove to be an invaluable resource for the study and treatment of various neuro-developmental disorders.
With an estimated 1.4 million Americans addicted to cocaine, scientists think they might have come up with an “unconventional” treatment that could help cure the addiction that often places an economic burden on society and results in heart attacks and strokes.
Researchers with the National Institutes of Health, the Ernest Gallo Clinic and the Research Center at University of California-San Francisco successfully tested a method in rats that cures the addiction by zapping the brain with a laser.
