It's a process called transdifferentiation where one cell converts to another cell when induced by certain proteins.

My take on it is that there will probably be a day when we recognize this as part of the healing process. That magical healing that nobody understands but all our medicine depends on. :)

What's interesting is they are studying Autism with this method. That's too many coincidences... this has to be relevant to ME/CFS as well. I mean, T cells, neurons, Autism?

There is a video on facebook that alerted me to it:
