    Know all by these presents, that the undersigned hereby constitutes and
appoints Jon Kuwahara and Ryan A. Murr, with full power of substitution, the

    (1)  prepare, execute in the undersigned's name and on the undersigned's
         behalf, and submit to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the
         "SEC") a Form ID, including amendments thereto, and any other documents
         necessary or appropriate to obtain codes, passwords and passphrases
         enabling the undersigned to make electronic filings with the SEC of
         reports required by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or any rule or
         regulation of the SEC;

    (2)  execute for and on behalf of the undersigned, in the undersigned's
         capacity as an officer and/or director of Novus Therapeutics, Inc. (the
         "Company"), Forms 3, 4, and 5 in accordance with Section 16(a) of the
         Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules thereunder;

    (3)  do and perform any and all acts for and on behalf of the undersigned
         which may be necessary or desirable to complete and execute any such
         Form 3, 4, or 5, complete and execute any amendment or amendments
         thereto, and timely file such form with the SEC and any securities
         exchange or similar authority; and

    (4)  take any other action of any type whatsoever in connection with the
         foregoing which, in the opinion of such attorney-in-fact, may be of
         benefit to, in the best interest of, or legally required by, the
         undersigned, it being understood that the documents executed by such
         attorney-in-fact on behalf of the undersigned pursuant to this Power of
         Attorney shall be in such form and shall contain such terms and
         conditions as such attorney-in-fact may approve in such attorney-in-

    The undersigned hereby grants to such attorney-in-fact full power and
authority to do and perform any and every act and thing whatsoever requisite,

unless earlier revoked by the undersigned in a signed writing delivered to the
foregoing attorney-in-fact.
