Wnt-3a and wnt-3 differently stimulate proliferation and neurogenesis of spinal neural precursors and promote neurite outgrowth by canonical signaling.
After sciatic nerve damage, local Schwann cells can shed off the myelin sheaths and transform to a neuroblast status, where their proliferation and migration capacities can help to sweep away myelin remnants and generate a conduit for the axonal pathfinding, and consequently form the beneficial conditions for neurite outgrowth (1-3).
Due to the instalment of highly specific MRI technology, the bio-psychologists were able to measure the density and spatial arrangement of planum temporale neurites in almost one hundred test participants.
When the researchers blocked BDNF signaling, psychedelics lost their ability to promote neurite growth.
Neurites are projections from the cell bodies of neurons, either axons (which carry signals outward to other neurons) or dendrites (which receive the signals).
Initial data on the interference with iPSC differentiation, neurite outgrowth, neural crest cell migration, and cardiotoxicity have been published (Pei et al., 2016; Nyffeler et al., 2017a; Ryan et al., 2016; Sirenko et al., 2017).
Reduction of neurite outgrowth in a model of glial scarring following CNS injury is correlated with the expression of inhibitory molecules on reactive astrocytes.
The final results were expressed as the average length of neurite extensions in collagen-coated GF and in collagen, normalized with controls (cells differentiated in 2D wells).
Neurite outgrowth and expression of progenitor and differentiation markers were analysed using the semiautomated software MetaMorph (Molecular Devices, USA).

Li's group mainly researches on the effects of 2D graphene film on the development of hippocampal neuron cells, and they have demonstrated that graphene not only has favorable biocompatibility with neurons but also plays a significant role in promoting neurite sprouting and outgrowth of mice hippocampal cells [25].
Researchers are finding that curcumin can reduce anxiety/depression, promote neurite growth and induce brain plasticity.
