The stem cells were implanted into the hypothalamus region of the brain, which normally has a diminished pool of stem cells in old age. The neural stem cells produced tiny pieces of RNA (called micro RNA) that changes how hundreds of genes operate and helped the mice maintain youth. The next step is to create human neural stem cells in the lab for testing with the hope of moving on to clinical trials soon.
