The article discusses stem-cell research that was presented at a Society for Neuroscience meeting that took place in November 2008 in Washington DC. The studies were conducted on repairing irreversible damage to the inner ear, converting frog pluripotent cells into retinal cells, and latent stem cells in mice that may be utilized in treating neurodegenerative diseases.
