Scientist in the Spotlight: Studying Zebrafish to Understand the Human Brain
The brain is awesome. In addition to being the only organ that named itself, it is the control center of our entire body. It is so complex that we still don’t know how much we don’t understand about the brain. Previously, scientists thought that brain cells (neurons) were non-regenerative. Now, we are learning that neurons can actually regenerate, even in adults, from neural stem cells.
