About these proceedings


Understanding the developmental origin of the nervous system is important for two reasons. This knowledge, first, is intellectually interesting since it provides an example of the assembly of a multicellular system, and second, will enable us to control the assembly and disassembly of this system in health and disease. This volume summarizes the current knowledge regarding the CNS stem cells which give rise to the nervous system.
