How Neural Stem Cells Help to Repair Damage

Health / Aging : Fight Aging (2 days ago)

Researchers have identified a novel mechanism by which neural stem cells can help to repair and assist other brain cells: Stem cells hold great promise as a means of repairing cells in conditions such as multiple sclerosis, stroke o... Read Post

New way to grow neural stem cells may accelerate therapy development for brain injuries and disease

Health : Medical News Today (11 months ago)

Researchers have discovered a new, highly efficient way to produce neural stem cells from human pluripotent stem cells that can then go on to form neurons in the brain. The discovery, reported in the current issue of STEM CELLS Tran... Read Post

Growing up as a neural stem cell: The importance of clinging together and then letting go

Academics / General Science : Science Codex (2 years ago)

Can one feel too attached? Does one need to let go to mature? Neural stem cells have this problem, too. As immature cells, neural stem cells must stick together in a protected environment called a niche in order to divide so they ca... Read Post
