This section covers all aspects of brain anatomy, development, plasticity and repair in human, cellular, organoid and animal models. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, neural development, glial development, neural activity, synapse formation, stem cells, plasticity, neurotrauma and repair, neuropharmacology, pathophysiology, and regeneration and genetics and genomics of neural development and function.
Boundary cap neural crest stem cells homotopically implanted to the injured dorsal root transitional zone give rise to different types of neurons and glia in adult rodents
The boundary cap is a transient group of neural crest-derived cells located at the presumptive dorsal root transitional zone (DRTZ) when sensory axons enter the spinal cord during development. Later, these cel...
