On this page I am going to continue to update any new items that deal with adult neurogenesis.
because I believe the failure to proliferate enough human hippocampus adult neurogenesis is the proximate cause of schizophrenia.
for those not SO interested in neuro- science please go to carers of schizophrenia links for carers.
? Hope for the future Alonso a way to more adult NSC's [Neural Stem Cells]
Chen:- engineering in vivo neurogenesis
an introduction to adult NG regulation
For and against adult human neurogenesis Llorens-Martin
A most thorough Study description of how different counting techniques could overlook cells. It finds thusands of new cell neurogenesis in the adult human hippocampus
Positive support from carbon dating
Evidence from histological counting,
Boldrini et al
and Coras as in rodents, human hippocampus has neurogenesis . Its activity correlates with memory ability in the people from whom the sample was surgically taken .
I.e the samples were fresh takes, immediately examined
New cells shown to proliferate in vitra
Examining for hippocampus neurogenesis in three sample populations: normal, depression samples showed the the same activity in neurogenesis; schizophrenia had only half that rate of neurogenesis
Reif et al 2006 replicated and verified for continuing schizophrenia - nine years later
by Allen et al
Hippocampal dental gyrus: Neurogenesis proliferation is reduced by over half.
I.e. there is human neurogenesis, shown to be halved in continuing schizophrenia.
2018 Sorrels et al - there is no human adult neurogenesis in the hippocampus
