The Zuckerman Institute at Columbia University
Scientists have uncovered new insights into how stem cells transform into brain cells that control leg movements. The surprising details of this process, observed in the brains of fruit flies, could shed light on how the human brain develops -- and what happens when problems arise. By providing key insight into how stem cells develop and mature, this research should help scientists in their quest to use stem cells to heal.
