Nerve damage and stem cells, computer artwork. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can produce other types of cell when they divide. Medical researchers believe that eventually it will be possible to manufacture new tissues and organs from stem cells. Neural stem cells can differentiate into different types of nerve cells (neurons), or into support cells for the nervous system, and could be used to repair the damage seen here.
