New biomaterials can promote regeneration of brain tissue after brain injury and disease damage

New biomaterials can promote regeneration of brain tissue after brain injury and disease damage.

Research at the Universitat Politècnica de València has shown that a biocompatible material implanted in the brain is colonized within two months by neural cells and irrigated by new blood vessels. This allows the generation, within these structures, of new neurons and glia, capable of repairing injured brain tissue caused by trauma, stroke or neurodegenerative disease, among other causes.
