Re: Scientists genetically reprogram brain cells to form new neurons
We all lose brain cells as we get older. In people with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s, neurons shrivel and die at alarming rates—perhaps three to four times faster than usual in Alzheimer’s, for example. Currently, no known drugs reliably halt or reverse such staggering cell death in people, although some drugs are thought to protect neurons from degradation.

An alternative to saving dying neurons—or perhaps a future supplemental therapy—is creating brand new neurons. One way to accomplish this is transforming non-neuronal brain cells into functional neurons. On a cellular level, the brain is as diverse as a rainforest populated by many different species of trees. The human brain contains approximately 170 billion cells, 86 billion of which are neurons and 84 billion of which are glial cells—non-firing cells that assist neurons in various ways. Star-shaped cells known as astrocytes are perhaps the best-studied of the many various glial cells and researchers have had some success converting astroyctes into neurons. Many of these studies, however, have used cells from very young rodent brains.

A study published this week suggests that it’s possible to turn at least one class of adult human brain cells known as pericytes into functional neurons. The fact that pericytes help defend and heal the brain—and may retain some of the plasticity of stem cells—makes them all the more appealing as candidate replacements for damaged and dying neurons.

Could just eat some raw cannabis, organic superfoods, blueberries, etc.

Also could take/eat adaptogens to help further.

If successful, what a blessing this would be for so many people!

kitty I doubt it, the real agenda is genetically engineering "the new man." Brought to you by the same people who gave us Theodolite, poisoned vaccines and so on.
 Quoting: Judethz


Exactly! Thank you for being informed. Honest.

Same people gave us the U.N./NATO same people gave us the military-industrial-media-politic complex, fucking up our planet, and then blaming us for their fuck ups, taking away our rights because they bombed us to stage a false-flag.

Same people gave us Merck/Bayer, helping to spread AIDS to Africa and so on, to take their resources to "help" them.

Giving "loans" out to nations, with their centralized banks in nations, and collecting interest on the loans, fucking all the nations out of their real wealth, buying up everything with their fake money, then giving a load of bullshit on the news every night to excuse it all as something else, "nothing to see here."

While they loot everything and everyone on the planet, rape it's resources, sell it back to us with poisons and other shit to cause us to die faster, because we're beginning to awake to whats going on again(bankers controlling shit, fucking us 1984 style), with the help of the internet we'll waken the planet to their agenda and that alone is half the battle.

Wikipedia Braingate...their techonology is VERY odd.


As for LMU Here is just one research group and if this is what we know, imagine what we don't? There's lot of cooperations tied to this as well and its a bitch to research especially with having to figure out all the neuro jargon (which is ironically the most important stuff in the data when you get down to the nitty gritty).

This is kolbs group from LMU in physiological genomics


[link to www.genom.physiol.med.uni-muenchen.de]


Kolb group
Research Interests

Motor systems
Cerebellar physiology and pathophysiology
Motor learning via associative processes or non-associative processes (adaptation, habituation)
Lesion induced plasticity in cerebellar systems
Motor rehabilitation
Neuro cybernetics, modeling of Neural Networks
Acupuncture points and skin resistance
Readyness potential and Philosophy

Methods

Classical conditioning of different types of withdrawal reflexes, of postural reflexes
Classical conditioning of a precision grip task (comparable to picking a raspberry )
Habituation of startle and withdrawal reflexes
Micro injection of specific drugs to temporarily inactivate circumscribed regions of the nervous structures
Multi-electrode approach to study electrical properties of cortical structures (e.g. cerebellar cortex)
Spread of excitation in cortical structures (e.g. cerebellar cortex)
Multi-electrode approach to study electrical properties of the skin resistance relatable to acupuncture points
EEG-techniques, evoked potential recording

Here are some links that work with LMU

[link to www.imprs-ls.de (secure)]


[link to www.mcn.uni-muenchen.de]


[link to www.cipsm.de]

And here's the link to BrainGate


[link to en.wikipedia.org]


"Technology

In its current form, BrainGate consists of a sensor implanted in the brain and an external decoder device, which connects to some kind of prosthetic or other external object. The sensor uses 96 hair-thin electrodes that sense the electromagnetic signature of neurons firing in specific areas of the brain, for example, the area that controls arm movement. The sensor translates that activity into electrically charged signals, which are then sent to an external device and decoded in software. The decoder connects to and can use the brain signals to control an external device, such as a robotic arm, a computer cursor, or even a wheelchair. In essence, BrainGate allows a person to manipulate objects in the world using only his or her mind."

i think its important stuff all this power and access to the brain unlike never before is absolutely terrifying. The more I look up and read this stuff the more it sounds so sci fi...theres a lot of researchers all across the board on those different sites and a lot of them (like 40% or so)all went to Stanford. Does Stanford Uni have any conspircy connections?
