Stem cell researchers at UCLA have identified new components of the genetic pathway that controls the adhesive properties and proliferation of neural stem cells and the formation of neurons.
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
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
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
