Tea As An Aid In Neuronal Growth

Student: Joseph McNeil

District/Region: Strait District

Event: 2009 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Grade 12 - Richmond Academy

My project, Tea as an Aid in Neuronal Growth, is looking for chemicals commonly found in tea that may aid or increase the growth of vertebrate nervous system cells.

One chemical, EGCG shows promise for this, and may have applications ranging from treating and preventing ALS to aiding and stimulating nerve regeneration.
