Implantation of neural stem cells into the brains of model mice has been shown to improve recognition, spatial memory, and learning, as published in Nature Scientific Reports.
Alzheimer mice are being turned back to normal cognition with stem cells says neurologist Dr. Eva Feldman, using neural stem cells as a means to improve cognition in AD models is a breakthrough.
Research is about 3-5 years from clinical trial, but the use of stem cells in AD model mice has gained Feldman’s lab a $3 million grant from the National Institute on Aging so they can continue their work. Advocates are hopeful as volunteers educate lawmakers and lobby to prioritize research funding, which has quadrupled over the past 5 years to $425 million.
