Mice study shows damaged brain tissue can be ‘retrained’

Scientists at Ohio State University have developed technology to “retrain” cells to help repair damaged brain tissue, reports Medical Xpress. “We can rewrite the genetic code of skin cells so that they can become blood vessel cells,” says study leader Daniel Gallego-Perez. “When they’re deployed into the brain, they’re able to grow new, healthy vascular tissue to restore normal blood supply and aid in the repair of damaged brain tissue.”
