Histogenesis of the supraoptic and paraventricular neurosecretory cells of the mouse hypothalamus

J Anat. 1980 Mar;130(Pt 2):341-7.

Abstract

Using tritiated thymidine in mice it was found that the precursor cells of neurons in the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei cease proliferating by the 13th embryonic day. The significance of the early origin of these neurons is discussed.
