Including an overview of progress made in the field over the past decade, Neural Stem Cell Assays
provides a detailed and comprehensive review of the basic methods for neural stem cell cultures. This one-stop reference for consistent methods and reliable tools spans the entire assay work flow, from isolation or generation of neural stem cells to characterization, manipulation and final application of NSCs in disease paradigms, such as Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and ALS. This is an excellent source of information for academic, pharmaceutic and biotechnology researchers.
