About this Research Topic
Over the past ten years a variety of cell imaging techniques have been applied to document different aspects of adult neurogenesis in the mammalian brain. Ranging from identification of stem/progenitor cells in the mature brain to imaging activation of adult generated neurons, cell imaging significantly contributed in the understanding of mechanisms and functions of adult neurogenesis. The idea for this Research Topic is to collect reviews covering the most recent developments in imaging strategies for adult neurogenesis research and to outline new challenges including their applicability to clinical neuroscience. New data papers could also be considered.
