Autoradiographic Examination of the Effects of Enriched Environment on the Rate of Glial Multiplication in the Adult Rat Brain 
Increases in cortical depth and glia numbers in rats subjected to enriched environment
TLDR
This study includes additional histological measures such as more extensive depth measures, differential cell counts, and cell size measurements that report anatomical and chemical changes in the cerebral cortex of rats living in an enriched, stimulating environment.

A developmental theory of environmental enrichment.
The differential brain development induced by sensory enrichment or deprivation is most apparent in rats with low brain weights. These differences are hypothesized to represent the retarded
Extensive cortical depth measurements and neuron size increases in the cortex of environmentally enriched rats
This study is another in a series of investigations attempting to define the changes in the brain as a consequence of environmental manipulation. Cortical depth and neuron size measurements were

TLDR
Differntial cell counts demonstrated significant differences in neuroglia in the hippocampus in the environmental complexity rats than in the isolation control animals.

Autoradiographic investigation of cell proliferation in the brains of rats and cats
TLDR
The results indicate that glia cells can multiply in the brains of young adult rats and adult cats and they support the possibility that new neurons may be formed in forebrain structures, both in rodents and carnivores.
CYTOGENESIS OF OLIGODENDROGLIA AND ASTROCYTES
TLDR
A review of the literature on the phylogenetic development of neuroglia, in association with an ontogenetic study of their evolution in mammals, has suggested a possible simplification of the existing classifications.

TLDR
This study of human embryos and fetuses establishes that medulloblasts exist, but the existence of such a cell has come to be regarded as hypothetic.
