Astrocytes help maintain the optimal environment for neuronal signal transmission. During development, neural stem cells differentiate into neurons and glial cells, such as astrocytes. These stem cells are abundant and can regenerate in the fetal brain but have minimal regeneration capabilities in the adult brain. Neural stem cells have the potential to be used in cell replacement therapy, drug delivery and disease modeling.
