Transplanted Neurons May End Seizures
A recently published paper in Nature showed that a neuron transplant might have the potential to improve someone’s memory, as well as stop seizures following a traumatic brain injury. This research paper came from a series of labs based out of the University of California, Irvine. The potential treatment discussed in this paper matters because millions of people in the United States suffer a TBI every year. Brain injuries have the potential to cause inflammation in the brain, leading to cell death. Sadly, much of the damage stemming from a head injury is thought to be irreversible.
