“What will they do on Thursday?”

So wondered Eli Dourado.  Well, from the front page of Nature:

Neurons progressively deteriorate with age and lose resilience to injury. It emerges that treatment with three transcription factors can re-endow neurons in the mature eye with youthful characteristics and the capacity to regenerate.

OK people, are you ready for Friday?  C’mon, Eli, give ’em another dare!
