Armed with reliable and genuine scientific experiments, experts have been able to transplant a pair of eyes onto the tail of tadpoles which eventually allow the creatures to see effectively. In fact, scientists have conducted the multiple experiments upon the African clawed frog also known as the Xenopus laevis. Basically, the new discovery is of utmost importance since it has many implications, especially in the field of regenerative medicine. Indeed, scientific researchers across the globe have voiced out that the tadpole's ability to see when ectopic eyes are connected to spinal cord and not directly to the brain was extremely appreciated in the field of science and medicine. As a matter of fact, medical scientists have highlighted that one of their main aims is to be able to restore the function of damaged or missing sensory structures through the use of biological or artificial replacement components. Medical researchers have much hope of developing new treatments for curing blindness with their new research and findings. In-depth research have shown that biologists have surgically removed the eyes of the African clawed frogs...
