Neural Stem Cells

Neural stem cells have been identified in nearly all regions of the developing mouse, rat and human central nervous system (CNS) and in specialized neurogenic regions of the mature CNS.The identification of CNS-resident NSCs and the discovery that adult somatic cells from mouse and human can be reprogrammed to a pluripotent state, and then directed to differentiate into neural cell types, has opened the door to new therapeutic avenues aimed at replacing lost or damaged CNS cells.
