"Scientists can now directly convert adult human blood cells to both
central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) neurons as well as neurons
in the peripheral nervous system (rest of the body) that are responsible
for pain, temperature and itch perception. This means that how a person's
nervous system cells react and respond to stimuli, can be determined from
his blood."
