There is a phenomenal amount of research into how to repair brain
damage going on at this time. In addition to the work being done
by Dr. Kurtzberg with cord blood which is described on the
Cord Blood page
on the menu at the left, there are many other researchers working
on other methods. This research is very exciting for parents hoping
that eventually there will be some way to repair the damage done
by hydrocephalus. On this page I will try to show some of the
most promising research projects that I have found.
There are several groups working with various gels that provide
a medium to allow new brain matter to grow. The link
below contains information on this promising research.
