The dentate gyrus (DG) contains one of the few neuronal populations in the mammalian brain that are generated throughout life. Research into the regulation and function of adult neurogenesis continues its rapid growth in popularity. With the researcher new to the field in mind, we review the processes that together constitute adult neurogenesis and some of the methods most commonly used for studying these processes. © 2006 Wiley‐Liss, Inc. 
Studies on neurogenesis in the adult human brain
Many studies on neurogenesis in adult dentate gyrus (DG) have been performed on rodents and other mammalian species, but only a few on adult human DG.  This study is focusing on neurogenesis in adu
Advances on Learning-modulated Adult Neurogenesis
TLDR
The present work reviews the last evidences related to the possible role of neurogenesis in learning and memory mechanisms and concludes that actual evidences do not provide a clear picture on the type of cognitive processes supported by adultborn neurons.
Developmental profile of neurogenesis in prenatal human hippocampus: An immunohistochemical study
Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis: Regulation and Possible Functional and Clinical Correlates
TLDR
The role that immature and mature adult-born neurons play in this circuitry is still mostly unknown but it could prove fundamental to understand hippocampal-dependent cognitive processes, the pathophysiology of depression, and the therapeutic effects of antidepressant medication in modulating behavior and mental health.
The window and mechanisms of major age‐related decline in the production of new neurons within the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus
TLDR
It is revealed that newly born neurons in the aging DG exhibit diminished dendritic growth compared with their age‐matched counterparts in the young DG, and major decreases in DG neurogenesis occur at 7.5–12 months of age in Fischer 344 rats.
Effect of physical activity on structural asymmetry of mouse hippocampus
TLDR
The reconstruction and analysis of protein­protein interactions that ensure the survival of a large number of new neurons and their integration into existing neural networks in the hippocampus have been carried out and the proposed approach allows the non­invasive registration of changes in the ratio of the volumes of these paired brain structures.
Hormones and adult neurogenesis
TLDR
This review focuses on stem and/or progenitor cells in the brain that drive adult neurogenesis in mammals and summarizes what is currently known about the influence of hormones on adult Neurogenesis.

The study of neurogenesis in the adult brain is among the most exciting and fastest moving areas of neuroscience today. In contrast to the high rate of neurogenesis in some vertebrates ([Nottebohm,
More hippocampal neurons in adult mice living in an enriched environment
TLDR
It is shown that significantly more new neurons exist in the dentate gyrus of mice exposed to an enriched environment compared with littermates housed in standard cages, and that the enriched mice have a larger hippocampal granule cell layer and 15 per cent moregranule cell neurons in the Dentate Gyrus.
Functional neurogenesis in the adult hippocampus
TLDR
It is reported that newly generated cells in the adult mouse hippocampus have neuronal morphology and can display passive membrane properties, action potentials and functional synaptic inputs similar to those found in mature dentate granule cells.
Learning enhances adult neurogenesis in the hippocampal formation
TLDR
It is reported that the number of adult-generated neurons doubles in the rat dentate gyrus in response to training on associative learning tasks that require the hippocampus, which indicates that adult- generated hippocampal neurons are specifically affected by, and potentially involved in, associative memory formation.
Postnatal Neurogenesis in the Guinea-pig
TLDR
The proliferation of similar cells has now been demonstrated in the hippocampus of postnatal guinea-pigs even though these rodents are born with nearly full-size brains.
Neurogenesis in the dentate gyrus of the adult rat: age-related decrease of neuronal progenitor proliferation
TLDR
It is confirmed that in the adult rat brain, neuronal progenitor cells divide at the border between the hilus and the granule cell layer (GCL) and in adult rats, the progeny of these cells migrate into the GCL and express the neuronal markers NeuN and calbindin-D28k.
Adult neurogenesis: from precursors to network and physiology.
TLDR
An overview of the current knowledge on adult neurogenesis and its functional relevance for the adult brain is proposed and a growing list of epigenetic factors that display a specificity of action depending on the neurogenic site under consideration has been identified.
Neurogenesis in the neocortex of adult primates.
In primates, prefrontal, inferior temporal, and posterior parietal cortex are important for cognitive function. It is shown that in adult macaques, new neurons are added to these three neocortical
Astrocytes Give Rise to New Neurons in the Adult Mammalian Hippocampus
TLDR
It is shown that SGL cells, which express glial fibrillary acidic protein and have the characteristics of astrocytes, divide and generate new neurons under normal conditions or after the chemical removal of actively dividing cells.

TLDR
Here, the available evidence is reviewed, and the scientific basis of the claim that continuous genesis and turnover of neurons in the adult primate association neocortex is questioned is questioned.
