No, the article IS in Nature Medicine. This study is essentially a
replication of Fred Gage's work over the last few years in rats, mice, and
monkeys showing extensive cell generation in adult hippocampus.
Surprising, but true nonetheless. This has been implicated in learning as
well; there were several new studies about it at this week's Neuroscience
meeting, but the exact role of neurogenesis isn't well characterized yet.
