Development of principal pyramidal and granule cells and nonprincipal GABAergic neurons of the primate hippocampus

Granule cells, hilar mossy cells, and CA3 pyramidal cells of monkeys are in an advanced stage of development at birth (Seress and Ribak, 1995a,b). Most granule cells have a complete dendritic arbor, although both spine density and the number of synapses in the molecular layer increase after birth (Seress, Baumgartner, and Ribak, 1995). Mossy cells and CA3 pyramidal cells display thorny excrescences, and terminals of mossy fibers (axons of granule cells) establish multiple synapses with those...

Sequences of CNS myelination

Historically, in elucidating the factors that determine the topographical and chronological sequences of CNS myelination, the process of myelination has been considered relative to the development of human behavior. This approach resulted in the analysis of the sequence of myelination in terms of relationships among anatomic systems associated with different functions. Yakovlev and Lecours 1967 held that the myelination proceeds along a hierarchy of increasingly complex CNS functions ending in...
