Direct-Current Electric Fields Induce Rapid and Directed Cathodal Galvanotaxis of Adult Subependymal Neural Precursor Cells

Abstract

The mobilization of subependymal zone neural stem cells and their progeny (together termed neural precursor cells or NPCs) from their niche toward a lesioned region of the brain is imperative for the success of endogenous neurorepair paradigms. Following cortical injury, endogenous NPCs within the adult forebrain subependyma can be activated to proliferate… (More)
