The regulation of neural stem cells is key to their use for repair. Reporting in this issue of Developmental Cell, Dirian et al. (2014) identify an adult neural stem cell population surprisingly distinct in Notch independence, lack of radial glia hallmarks, and late contribution to neurogenesis in a strikingly region-specific manner.
