(CNN) - China researchers have found a way to transform human urine into brain cells.
They were able to re-program kidney cells harvested from urine samples into immature versions of brain cells, called neutral progenitor cells.
The technique could be used to treat brain-attacking diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
The research appears in the Journal of Nature Methods.
