Science Daily has released an article regarding a study on brain plasticity from neuroscientists at Children’s Hospital Boston that has the potential to help patients heal from a brain injury.
Otx2, a protein that is manufactured in the retina, has been found to initiate a state of “heightened brain plasticity” in mice. This state of plasticity allows the brain to make new neural connections, leading to an increased ability to learn new things.
Imagine your brain being able to re-connect the portions that control memory, learning and physical stability with the application of eye drops…it’s not a reality for humans yet, but with the continued research into this area, it may be in the near future.
