Scientists at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) of the University of Luxembourg have grafted neurons reprogrammed from skin cells into the brains of mice.
Not surprisingly Six months after implantation, the neurons had become fully functionally integrated into the brain.
This could bode well for future medical treatment but it could bode poorly for humanity due to control that could be implemented via these pre programmed neurons.
“Prof. Dr. Jens Schwamborn and Kathrin Hemmer are working continuously to bring cell replacement therapy to maturity as a treatment for neurodegenerative diseases. Sick and dead neurons in the brain can be replaced with new cells. This could one day cure disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. The path towards successful therapy in humans.”
“The tests demonstrate that the scientists are continually gaining a better understanding of how to treat such cells in order to successfully replace damaged or dead tissue. “Building upon the current insights, we will now be looking specifically at the type of neurons that die off in the brain of Parkinson’s patients – namely the dopamine-producing neurons,” Schwamborn reports. In future, implanted neurons could produce the lacking dopamine directly in the patient’s brain and transport it to the appropriate sites. This could result in an actual cure, as has so far been impossible.”[SOURCE](http://www.alphagalileo.org/ViewItem.aspx?ItemId=144227&CultureCode=en)
