Researchers employing cutting-edge techniques highlight stem cells from the subventricular zone of the brain as the cell of origin for an incurable brain tumor

Assessing NSC Transplantation as a Treatment Approach for Parkinson’s Disease in Aged Patients

A new study of NSC transplantation into the aged brain highlights a critical role for astrocyte and Wnt/β‐catenin signaling in nigrostriatal mDA neuron restoration

Boosting Hippocampal Neurogenesis to Treat Cognitive Dysfunction

A novel compound that increases neurogenesis in the hippocampus may represent a new means to treat hippocampus-associated cognitive dysfunction

Motor Cortex Targeting Improves Treatment of ALS by Engineered Human Neural Progenitor Cells

Researchers establish that transplantation of growth factor-secreting human NPCs can delay paralysis and extend lifespan in a rat model of ALS
