The researchers from the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine find a way to regenerate memory with neural stem cells, in which they graft them into an aged brain.

The study was printed in the journal Stem Cells Translational Medicine. It was authored by Ashok K. Shetty, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Medicine, research career scientist at the Central Texas Veterans Health Care System and the associate director of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine. It is also co-authored by Bharathi Hattiangady, an assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Medicine.

The study involved an animal model. The researchers took neural stem cells and implanted them into the hippocampus, which is a part of the brain that makes new memories and connects them to emotions, of an animal model. It effectively enables them to regenerate tissue.
