In response to the many neurological disorders that plague humanity, no treatment shows more promise than stem cell therapy. By using these special cells to regrow damaged neurons and combat sources of disease in affected patients, researchers hope to treat neurological disorders of all kinds. While great strides have been made in laboratory settings, the widespread use of stem cells to treat neurological disorders in humans is still a distant goal. Recent advancements have been made in the area of neural stem cell therapy, but complications arise when using this method to treat neurological disorders.
