Adult neurogenesis: mechanisms and functional significance


Braun, Simon M G; Jessberger, Sebastian (2014). Adult neurogenesis: mechanisms and functional significance. Development, 141(10):1983-1986.

Abstract

New neurons are generated throughout life in distinct regions of the mammalian brain. This process, called adult neurogenesis, has been implicated in physiological brain function, and failing or altered neurogenesis has been associated with a number of neuropsychiatric diseases. Here, we provide an overview of the mechanisms governing the neurogenic process in the adult brain and describe how new neurons may contribute to brain function in health and disease.
