    Abstract : The nervous system, including the brain, is the most sophisticated organ in the mammalian body. In such a complex network, neuron-glial interaction is essential and controls most developmental processes, such as stem cell fate determination, migration, differentiation, synapse formation, ensheathment and myelination.

  2. 2. Neural crest in development and repair

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Author : Jorge Benjamín Aquino; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis is focused on several aspects of neural crest biology, largely related to two main issues: 1) understanding its mechanisms of migration and 2) analyzing the potential of neural crest stem cells or their derivatives for nervous system repair. If repair is the aim, knowledge of both timing and events leading to axonal degeneration is required in order to block it and/or increase regeneration outcome. READ MORE
