Abstract: The adult hippocampus continuously receives newborn dentate granule cells. In the past decade, several groups including mine have been looking into how the structural and functional integration of these newborn cells occurs in a relatively stable brain circuits. In this presentation, I will deliver some new evidence that my laboratory recently collected, showing who coordinates the rate of the number of new cells to be added and some possible underlying mechanisms.
