Abstract

Recent studies have showed that the ependymal cells and subventricular zone astrocytes are neurosphere-initiating cells and are neural stem cells. They give rise to neurons and glial cells in response to injury and utilization of endogenous stem cells in the treatment of nervous system diseases is important strategy in neurogenesis.
