a new Review - for and against

NG reviewed yet again

On this page I am going to continue to update any new items that deal with adult human neurogenesis: until the argument over new human neurogenesis, after which neuro science bhind schizophrenia will be found on this link 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.

Chen:- engineering in vivo neurogenesis

an introduction to adult NG regulation

For and against adult human neurogenesis.a very full review

protocol methodology neurogenesis


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

a positive appraisal of the above study

A second study confirma adult neurogenesis

Positive support from carbon dating

Ernst et al

Spalding et al

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

a previous study agrees;



Sorrells discuss the hippocampus adult neurogenesis disagreement again;
