After a traumatic brain injury, can a damaged brain repair itself? In this TED talk entitled: Can the Damaged Brain Repair Itself – Siddharthan Chandran says that it sometimes happens that the brain will repair itself. The process involves the brain building new brain cells to replace the damaged ones. It takes a while to do and as a result the repair doesn’t happen quickly enough to allow recovery from degenerative conditions like motor neurone disease (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease or ALS). Damaged Brain Repairs Itself
However the brain is capable of repairing itself and Siddharthan Chandran walks through some new techniques using special stem cells that could allow the damaged brain to rebuild faster. This is great news for anyone who has suffered or knows a person who has gone through a traumatic brain injury caused by an accident.
