    The effects of neurotransplantation of cultures of neural stem cells (NSC) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) on learning in rats subjected to acute hypoxia and the status of their brains were studied. The results showed that in the presence of NSC (but not MSC), there were improvements in the...
