Neural Stem Cells in Development and Disease


Neural stem cell is a fundamental unit building up our brain. During brain development, billions of different types of cells have to be correctly specified from neural stem cells, directed to migrate to the right position, organized in different layers and nuclei, and finally connected to appropriate targets.
