    Background: Progenitor cells isolated from adult brain tissue are important tools for experimental studies of remyelination. Cells harvested from neurogenic regions in the adult brain such as the subependymal zone have demonstrated remyelination potential. Multipotent cells from the progenitor...

    In spite of our knowledge of activity related adaptations in supraspinal neurones and skeletal muscles, very little is known concerning adaptations in a-motoneurones to alterations in chronic activity levels. Recent evidence shows that the biophysical properties of a-motoneurones are plastic and...

    The subventricular zone (SVZ) of the lateral ventricle of the mammalian forebrain is the major site in which neural progenitor cells (NPC) persist in the adult brain. The NPC are located beneath ventricular ependymal cells and have the capacity to self-renew and continuously produce neurons and...
