Abstract

One of the fundamental questions in understanding tissue development is how multipotent progenitors/tissue stem cells give rise to various cell types in a defined order to achieve appropriate tissue organization. Neural stem/progenitor cells (NPCs) attract much attention since these cells give rise to neuronal and glial cell types in a developmental-stage dependent manner with striking precision. In contrast to embryonic NPCs, adult neural stem cells (NSCs) maintain their differentiation potentials for a long time to continue neurogenesis throughout life. So, I would like to discuss the mechanisms underlying long-term maintenance of adult NSCs and emergence of these cells during development. I would also like to talk about the regulation of NPC expansion during the early stage of corticogenesis that has a great impact on the brain size and functions later in life.
