Researchers identify a previously unknown regulatory mechanism of neurogenesis.


The human nervous system is made up of an astonishing diversity of neurons. And yet only a very small number of proteins are needed to generate and determine the identity of these billions of neurons. An even smaller number of proteins, called proneural proteins, initiate and regulate neurogenesis, the manufacture of functional neurons from neural stem cells. These proneural proteins
