Scientists transplant neural stem cells from a monkey’s skin into its brain | KurzweilAI | cool stuff from research | Scoop.it

University of Wisconsin-Madison scientists have transplanted neural cells derived from stem cells from a monkey’s skin into its brain and watched the cells develop into several types of mature brain cells.

After six months, the cells looked entirely normal, and were only detectable because they initially were tagged with a fluorescent protein.
