Scientists create fully-functional brain neurons from mouse skin cells

It’s still a work in progress but the advancements are astonishing…
I remember with a chuckle on my face, when I was young at school, and in biology class, I was taught that neurons can’t regenerate, can’t grow new ones.

At that time I said that it was stupid that the most important organ in the human body would be so limited and without a mechanism to regenerate itself… I mean the whole body is there to support the brain!

I even had a heated argument with my biology teacher… yes I am stubborn as a mule! 😀
