Scientists have found a way to restore mobility and touch in rats after a stroke using human stem cells to recreate nerve connections in damaged brains — offering patients a new hope.

The study — conducted on rats — showed that the new cells could repair the damage caused by a stroke within six months of being transplanted into the brain.

However, the researchers caution that there is much work to be done before the procedure can be considered suitable and safe to try in human patients.
