9/15/2008 3 Neural plate changes: Cells in the neural plate change from being totipotent to multipotent Stem cells meet 2 criteria Unlimited capacity for self-renewal Can develop into different types of mature cells Increasingly specific: Cells . . . nervous system cells . . . glial cells or neurons . . . specific subtypes of glia and neurons . . . . .

9/15/2008 4 1) Induction of the neural plate 2) Neural proliferation 3) Migration and Aggregation Proliferation increase in number by cell division Sequence of proliferation determines characteristics of developing brain (e.g. patterns of folding, shape, etc.) At this point in development, most proliferation occurs in the ventricular zone 1) Induction of the neural plate 2) Neural proliferation 3) Migration and Aggregation 5) Neuron Death & Synapse Rearrangement
