Beauty of Science: Neural Stem Cells Galore

Latin: Cellula Nervosa Precursoria

We all know at this point that Neurons are quite photogenic once you get it under the right lighting and scope, but what about their earlier years when they were just neural stem cells? Here’s a post I’ve been meaning to put together highlighting the beauty of the neural stem cell in swarms.

Neural stem cells (NSCs) are the self-renewing, multipotent cells that generate the main phenotypes of the nervous system.

In other words they’re the cells that form up from the start in your nervous system to turn into different types of neural related cells.
