Innovation: MRI-based technique allows researchers to non-invasively follow  stem cells in vivo.
Neural stem cells are born deep in an area of the brain called the  subventricular zone. As time goes on, the cells, also called  neuroblasts, make their way to other areas of the brain where they  mature into functioning neurons. The brain’s ability to regenerate its  cells is of great interest to scientists.
The MRI could be used to develop treatments for brain injury  caused by trauma, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological  disorders.
