Resumo: The limited access to human neurons has hindered the development of accurate models to mimic human central nervous system (CNS) disease, and consequently the development of efficient therapies for neuropathologies. The current models rely on animal models or on two-dimensional in vitro models that often fail in mimicking human in vivo phenotype. The emergence of human induced pluripotent cells (hiPSC) technology provided an unlimited source of neural precursor cells (NPC) with the ability to differentiate into the neural lineage, including neurons and glia. The possibility to develop in vitro three-dimensional (3D) models that include complexity of microenvironment conditions and interactions, such as cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix (ECM) interactions, make CNS modeling closer to the in vivo microenvironment.
