Abstract

The dentate gyrus (DG) contains one of the few neuronal populations in the mammalian brain that are generated throughout life. Research into the regulation and function of adult neurogenesis continues its rapid growth in popularity. With the researcher new to the field in mind, we review the processes that together constitute adult neurogenesis and some of the methods most commonly used for studying these processes.
