Neural Progenitor Cells from Bipolar Stem Cells (image) University of Michigan Health System Share Print E-Mail Caption These cells, grown from skin cells taken from people with bipolar disorder, arose from stem cells and were coaxed to become neural progenitor cells -- the kind that can become any sort of nervous system cell. The research showed differences in cell behavior compared with cells grown from people without bipolar disorder.
