Seven key elements describing the regulation of adult neurogenesis are proposed. (i) A distinction must be made between regulation and ‘control’ at the transcriptional level in order to appreciate the hierarchy of regulatory factors. (ii) The regulatory hierarchy comprises conceptual levels from behaviour to genes. Consequently, ‘regulation’ of neurogenesis can be confounded by confusing rather than integrating factors, levels and concepts. The immense spectrum of neurogenic regulators reflects… 
Epigenetic control of hippocampal stem cells: modulation by hyperactivation, glucocorticoids and aging
TLDR
The overall aim of this thesis is the identification of novel epigenetic mechanisms governing phenotypical changes of NPCs and newborn neurons such as quiescence, proliferation, apoptosis and differentiation, induced by cell extrinsic factors.
Regulation and function of adult neurogenesis: from genes to cognition.
TLDR
This review summarizes the recent research regarding the process of adult neurogenesis from different perspectives, with particular emphasis on the differentiation and development of new neurons, the regulation of the process by extrinsic and intrinsic factors, and their ultimate function in the hippocampus circuit.

TLDR
It is proposed that activity-dependent regulation of adult neurogenesis might contribute to some sort of "neural reserve," the brain's ability to compensate functional loss associated with aging or neurodegeneration.
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.
Major unsolved points in adult neurogenesis: doors open on a translational future?
TLDR
It is suggested that full understanding of AN biology is an essential step for its possible exploitation in brain repair, and that further fundamental, multidisciplinary research is required to reach translational outcomes.
Adult Neurogenesis and Neurogenic Plasticity in the Zebrafish Brain
TLDR
The robust neurogenic capacity of the adult zebrafish brain is taken advantage to examine differences in forebrain and sensory neurogenic niches in regards to cytoarchitectural organization, neurogenic plasticity, and regulation.
New Neurons in Aging Brains: Molecular Control by Small Non-Coding RNAs
TLDR
Observations that link changes in circulating levels of steroid hormones with alterations in adult neurogenesis, cognitive decline, and vulnerability to psychopathology in advanced age are summarized, and a potential interplay between steroid hormone receptors and microRNAs in cognitive decline in aging individuals is discussed.
Glial cells in adult neurogenesis
TLDR
The question arises in how far regionalization of both the glia‐like precursor cells as well as of the glial cells determines site‐specific “neurogenic permissiveness” in the two neurogenic regions of the adult brain.
Redox potential defines functional states of adult hippocampal stem cells
TLDR
A novel mechanism linking the modulation of cellular ROS by behavioral cues to the maintenance and activation of adult NSCs is described, which represents an independent mode of cell cycle entry.
Neural Stem Cell Niches in Health and Diseases
TLDR
A model where all the NSC niches in the CNS may be connected in a functional network using the threads of the meningeal net as tracks is proposed, which leaves open the question of whether and how these structures communicate throughout long distance.

Intermediate Progenitors in Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis: Tbr2 Expression and Coordinate Regulation of Neuronal Output
TLDR
The results suggest that Tbr2+ IPCs play a major role in the regulation of adult hippocampal neurogenesis, and that a similar transcriptional program controls Neurogenesis in adult SGZ as in embryonic cerebral cortex.
Cell-intrinsic signals that regulate adult neurogenesis in vivo: insights from inducible approaches.
TLDR
This work reviews which molecules are now known to play a cell-intrinsic role in regulating adult neurogenesis in vivo, and draws attention to isolated molecules (e.g. Notch) to stimulate a broad effort to understand the complex and compelling cascades of intrinsic signaling molecules important to adult Neurogenesis.
Signaling in adult neurogenesis.
TLDR
Understanding signaling in adult Neurogenesis is not only important to understand the physiological roles of neurogenesis, but also to provide knowledge that is essential for developing therapeutic applications using NSCs to intervene in the progression of brain diseases.
Wnt signalling regulates adult hippocampal neurogenesis
TLDR
It is shown that adult hippocampal stem/progenitor cells (AHPs) express receptors and signalling components for Wnt proteins, which are key regulators of neural stem cell behaviour in embryonic development, and that the Wnt/β-catenin pathway is active and that Wnt3 is expressed in the hippocampal neurogenic niche.
The neurogenic reserve hypothesis: what is adult hippocampal neurogenesis good for?
Natural variation and genetic covariance in adult hippocampal neurogenesis.
TLDR
Insight is gained into the complexity of the genetic control of adult neurogenesis in two large genetic reference panels of recombinant inbred strains of mice with a set of 190 genes with expression patterns that covary with rates of cell proliferation, cell survival, or the numbers of surviving neurons, and astrocytes.
Why and How Physical Activity Promotes Experience-Induced Brain Plasticity
TLDR
It is argued that locomotion actually serves as an intrinsic feedback mechanism, signaling to the brain, including its neural precursor cells, increasing the likelihood of cognitive challenges, and boosting the potential for adult neurogenesis by physical activity increases the recruitment of cells following cognitive stimulation in an enriched environment.
