An Alternative Outcome to Sensory Neurons….

The Dottori laboratory not only cultures sensory neurons but also cortical neurons, that provide models for Alzheimers and Dementia research. The images below show 4 crucial stages in the process when culturing stem cells to generate cortical neurons:

The first stage on the production of cortical neurons

The beginning of this process involves the isolation of pluripotent  stem cells and their cultivation in the laboratory incubator.
