Plug and Play Brain: Understanding Integration of Transplanted Neurons for Brain Repair

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In a recent issue of Nature, Falkner et al. (2016) use chronic two-photon imaging, virus-based transsynaptic tracing, and dynamic calcium indicators to elegantly demonstrate extensive in vivo functional maturation and target-specific functional integration of transplanted embryonic mouse cortical progenitors into adult lesioned visual cortical circuits.
