■ Life Sciences / Rub your hands and improve memory – fantasy or reality? A team of Yonsei biotechnologists and neuroscientists suggests that triboelectricity can be used to convert somatic cells to neurons Strokes, brain tumors, and neurodegenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease, irreversibly destroy neurons in the brain, condemning people to permanent incapacitation or death. Neuronal degeneration is also the primary cause of memory loss and cognitive decline in elderly people. Therefore, neuroscientists have been working on strategies to restore the neuronal population in the brain, which is decreased by aging or disease. Among them, the conversion of pluripotent … Continue reading Rub your hands and improve memory – fantasy or reality?Read More →
