Nerve Transplants and the Safety of Statins
This week, we learn how nerve cells can be transplanted to correct metabolic disorders, investigate the long terms safety of statins in the fight against heart disease and find the coldest point water can reach whilst remaining a liquid. We also unearth the world's oldest fish hooks to reveal the existence of fishermen 40,000 years ago as well as explore bionic lenses, night vision materials and the effects of stress on the brain...
