   The ability to generate new neurons in the subventricular zone ( SVZ )
   of the lateral ventricles and the subgranular zone ( SGZ ) of the
   hippocampal dentate gyrus provides the adult mammalian brain an
   important level of plasticity for maintaining cellular homeostasis
   under physiological conditions, and potentially underlies an injury
   response under pathological contexts. Yet a full understanding of the
   neural stem cell niche, basic molecular mechanisms that ultimately
   dictate the fate of neural stem/progenitor cells, and intrinsic
   properties that guide the functional integration of newborn neurons in
   the existing circuitry is still in its infancy. The goal of this
   Keystone symposium is, by presenting novel mechanistic insights into
   the regulation and functional implications of adult neurogenesis, both
   the speakers and audience will gain further understanding, initiate
   extensive discussion, and promote scientific collaboration regarding
   the control of self-renewal, survival, and fate specification of
   neural stem cells in the adult mammalian brain.
