Scientists accidentally reprogram mature mouse GABA neurons into dopaminergic-like neurons – Attempting to make dopamine-producing neurons out of glial cells in mouse brains, a group of researchers instead converted mature inhibitory neurons into dopaminergic cells. Their findings, appearing October 11 in the journal Stem Cell Reports, reveal that—contrary to previous belief—it is possible to reprogram one mature neuron type into another without first reverting it to a stem-cell-like state.
