Mode of cell migration to the superficial layers of fetal monkey neocortex
  • P. Rakić
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Journal of comparative neurology
  • 1 May 1972
Golgi and electronmicroscopic methods were used to define the shapes and intercellular relationships of cells migrating from their sites of origin near the ventricular surface across the intermediateExpand
Developmental history of the transient subplate zone in the visual and somatosensory cortex of the macaque monkey and human brain
The cytological organization and the timetable of emergence and dissolution of the transient subplate zone subjacent to the developing visual and somatosensory cortex were studied in a series ofExpand
Neuron‐glia relationship during granule cell migration in developing cerebellar cortex. A Golgi and electonmicroscopic study in Macacus rhesus

  • The Journal of comparative neurology
  • 1 March 1971
The cytology of the postmitotic migratory granule cell and its relationship to Bergmann glial processes was examined with Golgi staining and electron microscopy in the three cardinal planes in theExpand
Neuronal migration, with special reference to developing human brain: a review.
TLDR
The intervening migrations, particularly in the human nervous system, form the subject of this review and are suggested that the special relationships involved in these various migrations are probably mediated by cell surface properties, and that such surface properties will come to be defined through analysis of reaggregation tissue cultures, experimental and natural chimeras, and by immunological definition of antigens on CNS cells at different stages of development.

Cytological and quantitative characteristics of four cerebral commissures in the rhesus monkey
The number, types, and distribution of distinct classes of axons and glia in four cerebral commissures of the adult rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta) were determined using electron microscopic andExpand
Neurons in Rhesus Monkey Visual Cortex: Systematic Relation between Time of Origin and Eventual Disposition
  • P. Rakić

  • 1 February 1974
Autoradiographic evidence after injection of tritiated thymidine indicates that cell position in the laminae of the monkey visual cortex is systematically related to time of cell orgin. TheExpand
Synaptogenesis in the prefrontal cortex of rhesus monkeys.
TLDR
The finding that synaptic density is relatively stable from early adolescence through puberty (the plateau period) is indicative of the importance, in primates, of a consistent and high synaptic density during the formative years when learning experiences are most intense. Expand
Concurrent overproduction of synapses in diverse regions of the primate cerebral cortex.
TLDR
This isochronic course of synaptogenesis in anatomically and functionally diverse regions indicates that the entire cerebral cortex develops as a whole and that the establishment of cell-to-cell communication in this structure may be orchestrated by a single genetic or humoral signal. Expand
Development of the corpus callosum and cavum septi in man
TLDR
It was concluded that the development of the corpus callosum is preceded by the infolding of the dorsal part of the lamina reuniens of His (1904) in the region of the prospective hippocampus into a median groove, and by fusion of its banks into a massa commissuralis which becomes the bed for corpusCallosum.

Prenatal development of the visual system in rhesus monkey.
  • P. Rakić
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Philosophical transactions of the Royal Society…
  • 26 April 1977
TLDR
Results show that all neurons in the primate visual system have been generated, reached their final positions and formed their basic connections subserving ocular dominance before birth, i.e. before visual experience. Expand
