Weight bearing leg exercises send signals to the brain which are vital for the production of healthy neural cells, researchers report.
Researchers report ependymal cells may play an important role in the regulation of neural stem cell function.
Researchers have observed how neural stem cells divide and new neurons are integrated into the hippocampus.
A new study reveals exposure to androgens during brain development can alter genes linked to autism in males.
UCSD researchers have successfully created a human stem cell based model of AGS, a rare, inherited autoimmune disorder.
A new study in eLife reports lunatic fringe genes mediates a mechanism that preserves neural stem cells, so they can form new neurons throughout life. The findings, researchers say, have far-reaching implications for the study of neurogenesis.
A recent study in Stem Cell Reports suggests electrical fields can be used to help guide transplanted neural stem cells towards a specific location in the brain. The finding could pave the way for new treatment that could help repair brain damage.
New insight into brain development in fruit flies may also shed light on maternal hypothyroidism in humans, researchers say.
