Human cortical neural stem cells
Cortical neurons are located in the cerebral cortex of the brain, a region responsible for memory, thought, language, and consciousness. Neural stem cells are “immature” cells committed to become neurons and helper cells of the brain. Neurons are the liaison between our brain and the world. When we eat a lemon, neurons connected to our taste buds tell the brain that it’s sour. Messages from the brain can also be sent elsewhere, as when neurons command muscles to contract while lifting a heavy object.

"I know. And I love you more than life itself for it and other things." She keeps Helena close… Then she blinks.
"We’ll wait. It’s okay to be bad once in a while, right…?"
Helena tilted her head in confusion. “Well certainly it depends on the type of bad, but sometimes, yes.”

"I think there’s more to it. I dunno. I never saw myself as good."
"Perhaps. You certainly are not evil, though." Helena shrugs. "It doesn’t particularly matter to me, darling. You’ll always be my daughter."
The wolf nods. “Of course I am. Why wouldn’t I be?”
"You care deeply about other people’s happiness, darling. So willing to sacrifice your own to do so. That in of itself is not the least bit evil."
"Right. And I’m a restrained evil."
Helena raised her eyebrows at that. “Is that so?”
The wolf nods. “Right. Exactly.”
"Though you do know that the whole good and evil thing isn’t so cut and dry right? There is a bit of grey area there. And all areas of the spectrum present differently. There are restrained evils and unrestrained goods."
The lycan smiled, pulling Helena into a hug. “Yeah, yea, I figured. I wouldn’t hurt Audrey, Helena. You know that.” She nuzzles into HG. “This family is protected, even if I’m not the one doing the protecting… does that make sense?”
"It does. We all protect each other. So that if one isn’t or can’t the others step in." Helena wrapped her arms around Jo, glad to have her there.
