Summary note
"The generation of new neurons in the adult mammalian brain is one of the most extraordinary examples of neuroplasticity. Bringing together leading researchers in the field of adult neurogenesis, this book provides an overview of this emerging field and lays the groundwork for future studies. It includes discussions on neural stem cell biology, methods and models for studying adult neurogenesis, physiological and molecular processes and their control, related neurological diseases, and comparisons of neurogenesis in humans, birds, fish, and invertebrates. This volume will be of interest to researchers in neurobiology, as well as those with clinical interests, as it has implications for understanding depression, epilepsy, and other neurological and psychiatric disorders."--BOOK JACKET.
