SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., January 31, 2019 -- Data from rodent studies show that an orally -available CNS drug candidate promotes hippocampal neurogenesis, the process by which new neurons are formed in a region of the brain that involves high-level functions such as emotions, memory, and spatial navigation and exploration, VistaGen Therapeutics (NASDAQ:VTGN) announced.
