The adult brain, even though largely postmitotic, is now known to have dividing cells that can make both glia and neurons. Of these, the precursor cells that have the potential to make new neurons in the adult brain have attracted great attention from researchers, anticipating their therapeutic potential for neurodegenerative conditions. In this review, I will focus on adult neurogenesis, from the perspective of the overall neurogenic potential in the adult brain, current understanding of the 'adult neural stem cell', and the importance of as a decisive factor for neurogenesis under homeostasis and pathologic conditions.
