Show Summary Details


Adult neurogenesis was first described in the 1960s, but only the link to neural stem cells of the adult brain, which were discovered in the early 1990s, promoted its recognition as critical and particular type of brain plasticity. The chapter describes the pre-history of adult neurogenesis research, the original description by Joseph Altman, the work on songbird neurogenesis by Fernando Nottebohm and the rise to modern-day adult neurogenesis research, embracing essentially all areas of neuroscience.

Chapter.  17774 words.  Illustrated.
