Nervous System Development

TNeurogenesis is defined as the formation of new neurons from neural stem and progenitor cells which occurs in various brain regions such as the subgranular zone of dentate gyrus in the hippocampus and the subventricular zone of lateral ventricles.

The vertebrate nervous system consists of the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and retina) and the peripheral nervous system (sensory neurons, nerves, and ganglia). During embryonic development, dorsal mesoderm cells produce growth factors that specify neural cell fate in the ectoderm. Neurulation also establishes two ectodermally-derived strips of cells above the neural tube called the neural crest. Neural crest cells migrate away from the neural tube and give rise to the peripheral nervous system and other specialized cell types. Later stages of nervous system development include neural stem cell differentiation into neurons and glial cells, neuron migration, axon outgrowth, and synapse formation and remodeling.
