To gain insight into cellular and molecular mechanisms subserving neuronal cell migration in the adult mouse forebrain, we have first investigated the cellular composition of the subventricular zone-olfactory bulb pathway (SVZ-OB). The pathway was essentially composed of cells with neuronal and astrocytic identities, neuronal cells being four times more(More)
In vertebrates, interneurons of the olfactory bulb (OB) are generated postnatally and throughout life at the subventricular zone of the forebrain. The neuronal precursors migrate tangentially through the forebrain using a well defined pathway, the rostral migratory stream (RMS), and a particular mode of migration in a chain-like organization. A severe size(More)
Most studies on the origin of oligodendrocyte lineage have been performed in the spinal cord. By contrast, molecular mechanisms that regulate the appearance of the oligodendroglial lineage in the brain have not yet attracted much attention. We provide evidence for three distinct sources of oligodendrocytes in the mouse telencephalon. In addition to two(More)
The effects of target loss on adult axonal arbors were investigated by comparing the morphological changes of adult climbing fibers in several mutant mouse strains where Purkinje cells slowly degenerate (namely, Lurcher, nervous, Purkinje cell degeneration, and tambaleante), with those occurring after a fast Purkinje cell death induced by mechanical lesions(More)
The subventricular zone of the adult mammalian forebrain contains progenitor cells that, by migrating along a restricted pathway called the 'rostral migratory stream' (RMS), add new neurons to the olfactory bulb throughout life. To determine the influence of the olfactory bulb on the development of these progenitor cells, we performed lesions that interrupt(More)
Regeneration of severed central axons is supposed to depend on two factors: a permissive local environment and the particular intrinsic properties of axotomized neurones. To assess the role of each of these factors in axonal regeneration, the capability of two particular axon populations of the adult mouse cerebellum to grow into target-specific(More)
Neural progenitors are thought to be multipotent cells whose adult phenotype is determined by extrinsic influences acting during and immediately after their last mitosis. To test this hypothesis, postnatal cerebellar precursor cells were placed in the heterochronic cellular environment of the embryonic mouse cerebellar anlage and the resulting phenotypes(More)
