Neural stem cells lend the brain a surprising capacity for self-repair

...e mice would not live long, but by four weeks, the hole was largely repaired and the animals survived. "It was a big surprise. It was not known that the brain has this kind of ability to repair itself." Jan and his colleagues first discovered Numb in the fruit fly Drosophila more than 10 years ago. T...

Copying nature could save us energy, study shows
