Regionalization in the mammalian telencephalon

Curr Opin Neurobiol. 1997 Feb;7(1):62-9. doi: 10.1016/s0959-4388(97)80121-3.


Regionalization in the telencephalon results in the formation of functionally and anatomically distinct territories. Cell fate analysis and gene expression studies suggest these subdivisions arise relatively late in development compared with the spinal cord or hindbrain. The mechanisms underlying the commitment of telencephalic cells to specific regional identities have been examined through recent transplantation experiments.
