According to one study, it is possible for the brain to repair itself…with some help.
Neurosurgeon Jocelyne Bloch, M.D., has discovered that cells can be grown from pieces of brain tissue. These new cells are similar to stem cells and can turn into any type of cell in the body. The cells are then implanted back into the brain to help it heal. Watch Dr. Bloch’s TED talk here >> http://www.ted.com/talks/jocelyne_bloch_the_brain_may_be_able_to_repair_itself_with_help
