ABSTRACT
The article presents a research that examines the effect of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells that are generated through the reprogramming of differentiated cells, and embryonic stem (ES) cells as a tool for modelling neurodevelopmental disorders. It determines how iPS cells can help in studying human-specific aspects of brain development through premature neuronal differentiation and cell-aggregation methods.

    Maintaining induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells in an undifferentiated, self-renewing state during long-term cultivation is, at present, a major challenge. We previously showed that human amniotic epithelial cells (HuAECs) were able to provide a good source of feeder cells for mouse and human...
