Adult Neural Stem Cells from the Subventricular Zone Give Rise to Reactive Astrocytes in the Cortex after Stroke

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Faiz and colleagues show that self-renewing, multipotent neural stem cells in the subventricular zone leave their niche and migrate to the site of injury following stroke. These migratory stem cells give rise to reactive astrocytes that contribute to astrocyte scar formation.
