The Power to Regenerate [2]

4489 days ago

Scientists have created modified mice which are capable of regenerating and healing damaged vital organs, allowing them to recover from severe injuries that would otherwise have killed or permanently disabled them.

“We have experimented with amputating or damaging several different organs, such as the heart, toes, tail and ears, and just watched them regrow,” said Prof Heber-Katz… Interestingly though, the only organ that could not regenerate was the brain… This MAY mean two things: either the brain does not have the power to regenerate itself (owing to the fact that it’s too complex maybe(?)), meaning all the other organs have “self-regenerating capabilities” OR the brain itself is responsible for and is making possible the regeneration of the other organs, thereby making its self-regeneration impossible…

After all, there must be something responsible for “all this”...
