Calcium imaging of synaptic connectivity between host and neural progenitor cell graft-derived neurons after spinal cord injury

Authors: STEVEN L. CETO, K. SEKIGUCHI, A. NIMMERJAHN, M. H. TUSZYNSKI; Lab Abstract: Neural stem cells (NSCs) grafted into sites of spinal cord injury (SCI) may act as new electrophysiological relays between host neurons above and below the lesion. Host … Continue reading

Synaptic connectivity between host and neural progenitor cell-derived neurons after spinal cord injury

Neural stem cells (NSCs) grafted into sites of spinal cord injury (SCI) may act as new electrophysiological relays between host neurons above and below the lesion. Host axons regenerate robustly into NSC grafts and form synapses; in turn, graft axons … Continue reading
