    Abstract: Objective to investigate the directed differentiation of human umbilical cord stromal-derived stem cells into neural cells. Methods: (1) Human umbilical cord stromal cells (HUMSC-NSCs) were induced to differentiate from primary human umbilical cord stromal cells, and two different methods were used to induce differentiation to neural cells, which w...
