Abstract

Neural stem cells (NSCs) are broadly defined as multipotent, self-renewing progenitor cells. In the central nervous system (CNS), these cells generate neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes. In the peripheral nervous system (PNS), they generate neurons, Schwann cells, and other neural crest derivatives such as smooth muscle cells. Over the past few years, remarkable progress has been made in identifying and understanding the properties of these elusive cells. Yet recently there has been a quantal increase in the attention afforded stem cells, in both the scientific and lay communities. What accounts for this heightened level of interest? What do we really know about these cells, and what remains to be learned?
