How to teach a cell to use its brain

Somatic cells in our body are very different from one another, through their diversity they concur to compose various organs and, in the end, our own body. Even if these cells don’t change their identity to acquire a new somatic identity, scientists discovered Direct Neuronal Reprogramming: a process that enable us to transform different somatic cells into neurons by simply infecting them with viruses containing a few genes. Understanding this process of transformation in depth is important to open up new possibility in regenerative medicine, in particular to dead and malfunctioning neurons.
