Development of the Cerebral Cortex

Overview

Presents and evaluates the latest approaches to the principles of cortical development. It includes a review of a variety of techniques, such as the analysis of cell growth in culture and specific cell transplantation experiments, that have been invaluable for the analysis of neuronal proliferation and specification. These studies have established that environmental cues participate in the regulation of neuronal differentiation. In addition, ablation of certain neurons at particular developmental stages results ...

Overview

Presents and evaluates the latest approaches to the principles of cortical development. It includes a review of a variety of techniques, such as the analysis of cell growth in culture and specific cell transplantation experiments, that have been invaluable for the analysis of neuronal proliferation and specification. These studies have established that environmental cues participate in the regulation of neuronal differentiation. In addition, ablation of certain neurons at particular developmental stages results in the failure of specific axons to innervate their targets, highlighting the importance of cellular interactions within the developing neural network. The development of labelling techniques using retroviral vector that express marker genes has also facilitated the analysis of the pattern of cell migration and cell lineage.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Twenty presentations and discussions from the Ciba Foundation Symposium on the Development of the Cerebral Cortex, London, November and December of 1994, evaluating new research in the field. The subjects include cell lineage and migration patterns, cellular diversity, neural activity, and cortical development in relation to schizophrenia and neuropsychiatric disorders. The research techniques and new fields of study examined in the symposium represent the latest concepts in cortical organization and development. Annotation c.
