Baby comes with brain repair kit for mum

New Scientist is running an article which suggests that stray stem cells from a growing fetus may colonize in the mother and repair damage to the mother's brain.

This seems only fair, given the amount of brain damage that a child will inflict on his or her parents over their lifetime. 🙂

It is all very tentative research, but pretty interesting nonetheless.
