According to a recently published stem cell study, new cells are quick to respond to sensory stimuli and adopt a function.
Working with fruit flies, researchers identify a mechanism which helps explain how neurons which make up the visual system are generated.
Researchers identify the 'master switch' which initiates the myelination process in the brain.
Researchers discover SMEK1 promotes the differentiation of neural stem and progenitor cells while, at the same time, keeping these cells in check by suppressing their uncontrolled proliferation.
Researchers have identified a set of compounds which could be used to treat MS. These compounds boost a population of progenitor cells which can repair damage to nerve fibers caused by the disease.
