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.

sometimes
when someone throws away
a broken mirror
in a city street
it’s an invitation

to see things more whole

as the little gluedrops of rain 

piece you back together
