Cell Transplants Could be a Novel Treatment for Schizophrenia - Researchers discovered that transplanting stem cells into the hippocampus of rats restored functions that are abnormal in schizophrenia. This image shows the location of the hippocampus in the brain.
The cortex and its various lobes. Short-term memory activates regions in the frontal lobe (shown in blue). The parietal lobe (yellow) holds tactile sensations and maps of the space around us; the occipital lobe (red) is a vision area. The temporal lobe (dark yellow) contains auditory areas and the hippocampus.
