Stem cell stimulation improves stroke recovery

Stem cell stimulation shows promise as a potential noninvasive stroke treatment, according to new research. If extended to humans, this technique could greatly improve patients' quality of life.

Ling Wei, Shan Ping Yu, and colleagues at Emory University injected neural stem cells into the brains of mice after a stroke and activated the cells through nasal administration of a protein. Both Dr. Wei and Dr. Yu are NS faculty members.
