Abstract

It is now accepted that neurogenesis continues throughout life, contrary to the previously held dogma that no new neurons are produced in the adult human brain. Neurogenesis during development and throughout adult life is a result of the proliferation, migration, and differentiation of neural stem cells (NSC). NSC are cells that can differentiate into all the cells of the central nervous system (CNS) and self-renew while retaining their multipotential capabilities. Numerous factors contribute to the survival, proliferation, migration, and differentiation of NSC. These factors include, but are not limited to, chemokines, growth factors, and neurotransmitters.
