Abstract

Heterogeneity among progenitor cells in the vertebrate nervous system has been documented with increasing frequency over the past few years. It has become clear that differences in progenitor cells help to determine when and how they respond to environmental signals. More recent studies have begun to elucidate the molecular basis of the differences in progenitor cell subpopulations that control their developmental potential and responsiveness to environmental signals.
