UCI Neurobiologists Restore Youthful Vigor To Adult Brains
They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. The same can be said of the adult brain. Its connections are hard to change, while in children, novel experiences rapidly mold new connections during cr...
Complete spinal cords grown in lab
As regenerative medicine and stem cell technologies continue to progress, so the list of tissues and organs that can be grown from scratch – and potentially replaced – continues to grow. In the past f...
Researchers create 'programmable' stem cells through stress
Making stem cells in the lab is typically a complicated process, and there isn't much variety in the results without resorting to foreign DNA. However, researchers at both Brigham and Women's Hospita...
Regenerated human heart tissue beats on its own, leads towards replacement hearts and other organs
A team of scientists at the University of Pittsburgh have hit the mother lode: They've grown human heart tissue that can beat on its own (video below). The process, involving decellularized mouse hea...
