In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Martínez-Cerdeño and colleagues (2010) transplant interneuron precursors from the MGE into the striatum of a rat model of Parkinson's disease and observe a 5% increase in the endogenous GABAergic interneuron population resulting in behavioral benefits in both lesioned and wild-type animals.
