Fluorescent Neural Cells from Monkey Skin Mature Into Several Types of Brain Cells in Monkeys, University of Wisconsin-Madison Study

For the first time, scientists have transplanted neural cells derived from a monkey's skin into its brain and watched the cells develop into several types of mature brain cells, according to the authors of a new study in Cell Reports. After six months, the cells looked entirely normal, and were only detectable because they initially were tagged with a fluorescent protein.
