Abstract: Aging is usually associated with progressive loss of central nervous system functions particularly in the presence of neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. In the last few years, cell replacement strategies have been put forward in order to repair the brain and replace the lost brain tissue due to disease. However, successful application of such therapies require the full understanding and knowledge of the complex relationships involved between neural stem cells, normal aging and the neuropathology involved.
