Neural stem cells (NSCs) hold promise for the treatment of a wide range of neurological disorders common to Veterans such as traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Parkinson's disease. In addition to providing cells for transplantation-based therapies, NSCs are also an important source of human neurons and glia for drug discovery and development. To realize the full potential of NSCs for human therapy, it is important to understand the molecular mechanisms that regulate the production of specific neur...
