Neural Circuits Serve as Periscopes for NSCs
Neural stem cells (NSCs) within the hippocampal niche integrate local cues, such as activity of inhibitory interneurons, into their homeostatic fate choices. Now in Cell Stem Cell, Bao et al. (2017) describe how these local interneurons relay signals from distal brain regions to govern NSC quiescence and activation.
Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
