Neural stem cells may be implanted at a region remote from neuron degeneration. This invention teaches a method of treating neurodegenerative disorders arising from the lack of cells that produce particular neurotransmitters in neural circuitry by transplanting exogenously cultured and expanded neural progenitors which, upon tranplantation into a neural tissue, differentiate into neurons capable of integrating and producing neurotransmitters to overcome the symptoms associated with the neurodegeneration.
