subventricular zone

[-ventrik′yələr]
an area, located between the ventricular and intermediate zones in the fetal forebrain, in which neurons of the cerebrum are generated.

One potential mechanism to reduce the toxicity may be through the proliferation of neural stem cells (NSCs) in the subventricular zone (SVZ) that could differentiate toward the neurons, thereby repairing damaged nerve.
To circumvent this problem, more recent work by Bardella et al (66) used a similar paradigm but with tamoxifen-inducible Nestin-Cre-mediated induction of IDH mutation performed at 5 to 6 weeks of age, targeting Cre to neural progenitor cells within the subventricular zone of the adult animal (as well as the subgranular zone of the dentate gyrus).
The canonical niches for neural stem cells (NSCs) in the brain are the subventricular zone and the dentate gyrus [7].

Using PET imaging and a tracer to detect proliferating cells, they found that the subventricular zone (SVZ) was wider, and the hippocampus expanded, in the brains of rats injected with ar-turmerone than in control animals.
In living rats, injections of aromatic turmerone led to the expansion of two key brain regions, the subventricular zone (SVZ) and hippocampus.
