Postnatal neurogenesis in the human forebrain: From two migratory streams to dribbles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Subventricular zone neurogenesis occurs throughout life from rodents to primates, but the existence of a rostral migratory stream of immature neurons in postnatal human brains is controversial. A recent report in Nature (Sanai et al., 2011) identifies two neuronal migratory streams in infant human brains targeting the olfactory bulb and prefrontal cortex.
