Neural stem cells are highly undifferentiated stem cells that originate in the central nervous system. These cells have the capability to grow and form neurons. These cells help in the neural repair after injury or diseases. In mature CNS, neural stem cells contribute towards neurogenesis. The proliferation of Neural Stem Cells reduces with aging. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
