A novel principle to mobilise neurons for brain repair

Restorative neuroscience, the study of identifying the means to replace damaged neurons and recover permanently lost mental or physical abilities, is a rapidly advancing scientific field considering our progressively aging society. Redirecting immature neurons that reside in specific brain areas towards the sites of brain damage is an appealing strategy for acute brain injury or stroke therapy.
