    A very efficient protocol for directly reprogramming skin-based fibroblasts into neurons is provided at this link. The induced neurons have all the electrophysiological characteristics of normal neurons and because no embryonic stage is passed through, these cells are safer than iPSCs. The problem is making enough of them for therapeutic purposes. At this point, the iPSCs really have it hands down.
