    What are you opinions on the latest research done with human embryonic stem cells which formed neurons in mice brains? Apparently, it has been the first time cultured human embryonic stem cells have been shown to develop into a particular type of cell in the body of another living species. Does that give us any hope for potential cures for diseases such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's ? :idea:
