When the cerebral cortex is damaged due to brain injury, stroke, Alzheimer’s or other diseases, this portion of the brain is unable to produce new neurons to replace the lost brain cells. This portion of the brain is responsible for memory, perception, language, complex thought, attention and consciousness. A new study published in the International Society for Stem Cell Research’s journal Stem Cell Reports gives hope to the elderly or those who have suffered from traumatic brain injuries. The journal reveals that Sox2 protein can convert non-neuronal cells to turn into neurons in injured brains of adult mice. The findings from these research studies may pave the way for the cure to neurodegenerative diseases or traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in the future. Meanwhile, A-1 Home Care in Los Angeles County provides superior live-in and hourly home care services.
