Neurogenesis and Gliogenesis
In adult brain newly produced neurons can integrate into and modify existing neuronal circuits by the function of neurogenesis . Gliogenesis occurs more commonly in the adult mammalian brain than neurogenesis. Neurorestoration is involved in balancing neurogenesis and gliogenesis. Neurogenesis alters neuronal connectivity in specific brain areas, whereas gliogenesis ensures that myelination occurs and produces new supporting cells. Beclin 1 is a mammalian gene that plays important roles in development, tumorigenesis, and neurodegeneration.
