Adult zebrafish (Danio rerio) have a remarkable ability to restore function after an injury to the brain or spinal cord. The molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying this phenomenon are not fully understood. To enable investigation of these mechanisms we have developed an in vitro model system from the adult zebrafish brainstem, which can be maintained(More)
Understanding the molecular mechanisms that underlie neurodegenerative disorders has been hampered by a lack of readily available model systems that replicate the complexity of the human disease. Recent advances in stem cell technology have facilitated the derivation of patient-specific stem cells from a variety of differentiated cell types. These induced(More)
