This question I posted yesterday as well, but received no help. There wasn't any info about it in my book, so I'm wonderig if you could help me with it.

Why might scientists want to figure out a way to promote cell division in mature nerve cells?

  1. For a long time, we have been taught that neuron cells do not divide.

    However, lately, research seem to indicate that certain neurons that do divide (cycle), die soon after. This event appears to take place before the appearance of other markers of the onset of Alzheimer's disease.

    You may want to read up on the following articles, and perhaps search for others to completely understand the issue.
