Neuroscience / Neural Cell Culture
Insight into the development and function pf the nervous system has greatly expanded in the last few decades, as researchers have access to increasingly specific tools for studying specific aspects of neuroscience. The combination of advanced imaging techniques, gene manipulation tools and improved cell identification and culture procedures has allowed researchers to greatly advance our understanding of neural development and function. However, advancing the science has not been an easy task. Neural cells are difficult to isolate and grow in culture, and genetic manipulation techniques are limited by the high sensitivity of cells to commonly used transfection reagents.
The recent creation of human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) from reprogrammed or de-differentiated adult cells has changed the approach to pluripotent stem cell research, and by extension, to neuroscience research. The ability to reprogram an adult somatic cell into a neural cell has opened new avenues of research that could lead to novel therapeutic applications in the future. Additionally, the ability to direct the development of embryonic stem (ES) cells into specific classes of neurons offers hope for treating neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, where specific classes of neurons are affected.
