Overview

"For this new edition of his work, Mahendra S. Rao, has assembled a panel of leading experts to expand and update his Stem Cells and CNS Development to reflect the enormous increase in our knowledge of the development of the nervous system. Working from a new understanding that the regionalization of stem cells occurs early in development and that this bias appears to persist even after prolonged culture, Dr. Rao has added additional chapters on olfactory epithelial stem cells and retinal stem cells, both of which differ in their properties from ventricular zone and subventricular zone-derived neural stem cells. A new chapter on cell death summarizes the important changes in the death pathway that occur as stem cells mature. Special attention is paid to the derivation of neural cells from embryonic stem cells. All chapters from the first edition have been extensively revised and updated. Appendices provide information on neural stem cell companies, stem cells and transplants, patents and stem cells, and US federal government guidelines on stem cells." Wide-ranging and up-to-date, Neural Development and Stem Cells, Second Edition provides neuroscientists with an authoritative guide to stem cells in the nervous system, tracing with great clarity the development of stem cells from differentiation to neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes.
