    Human skin cells reprogrammed directly into brain cells

    Scientists have described a way to convert human skin cells directly into a specific type of brain cell affected by Huntington?s disease, an ultimately fatal neurodegenerative disorder. Unlike other techniques that turn one cell type into another, this new process does not pass through a stem cell phase, avoiding the production of multiple cell types, report researchers.
