... of embryogenesis (right, CS12>23). A central way in which mammals differ from one another is in the pace of growth and development. Generally speaking, smaller mammals grow more quickly in utero , reach major developmental milestones more rapidly, are born after shorter gestation periods, reach sexual...

... factors that contribute to the development of the neocortex, as well as the role of spontaneous and sensory driven activity in constructing a nervous system. Although the evolution of the neocortex cannot be studied directly, studies in which developmental processes are experimentally manipulated provide...

... that the distinctive shapes of cerebral and cerebellar cortex can be explained by relatively few developmental processes, notably including mechanical tension along axons and dendrites. Regarding functional organization, we show how maps of myelin content in cerebral cortex are evolutionarily conserved across primates...

To gain insight into the evolution and development of the cerebellar nucleus, we analyzed in the shark Scyliorhinus canicula (a chondrichthyan model species) the developmental expression of several genes coding...

Further genetic studies of thalamic development may also help us understand the homologies of the thalamic regions that show variation from the common developmental pattern. We thank Dr. Xiang...

The developmental stages of the embryos were determined according to Iwamatsu [2004]. To examine epithalamic development, individual living embryos...

Due to the protracted development of S. canicula and the relative large size of the olfactory and terminal nerve structures, this species was particularly advantageous to analyze the development of these systems. This work represents the first developmental study...

Studies of retinal development in these model systems are complemented by work in vertebrates in which protracted periods of retinal patterning allow greater resolution of the temporal relationships...

According to almost all current textbooks on developmental biology [for example, see fig. 9.9 of Gilbert, 2010], the rostral region of vertebrate neural tubes develops...

In order to ensure that mammalian and avian embryos used in this study are at comparable stages of development, I assessed the maturity of museum specimens by examining maturational milestones in Nissl-stained sections [see Charvet and Striedter, 2010]. Many of these developmental milestones consist...
