Cover image Neural stem cell culture. Fluorescent light micrograph of a group of neural stem cells (neurosphere) in culture, showing the stem cells migrating out of the central neurosphere (blue). Neural stem cells are able to differentiate into neurones (nerve cells) or support cells (glial cells). They are a potential source of cells to replace damaged or lost brain cells.
