Neurogenesis is the process by which neurons are created. This process is most active during pre-natal development when neurogenesis is responsible for populating the growing brain. Neural stem cells (NSCs) are the self-renewing, multipotent cells that differentiate into the main phenotypes of the nervous system. These cell types include neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes. Neural progenitor cells (NPCs) are the progeny of stem cell division that normally undergo a limited number of replication cycles in vivo.

The terms neuronal and neural also need to be defined. Technically speaking, neuronal means pertaining to neurons," and neural means pertaining to nerves, which are the cordlike bundles of fibers made up of neurons. Since both terms ultimately are descriptive of neurons, the scientific community uses the terms "neuronal" and "neural" interchangeably. The complexity of this issue is explored from a strategic perspective within this report.

In particular, when naming products, companies are advised to use the term neural rather than neuronal, both in reference to stem cells and progenitor cells, in order to best position products within the marketplace. Also of interest is that when stem cell versus progenitor cell publications are compared, neural/neuronal stem cell publication rates continue to outpace neural/neuronal progenitor cell publications by over 200% over a trailing two-year period.
