All neurons in the brain are generated by neural stem cells (NSC). Neurogenesis mostly occurs during embryonic development and, in certain brain areas, also throughout life. Our goal is to understand the mechanisms controlling the expansion of NSC and their switch to neurogenesis. This is important to understand how the brain forms during development and how does it work throughout life. Not least, controlling neurogenesis can provide us with the means to use NSC to rescue brain deficits associated to aging or disease.
