Bilateral enucleation was performed at different fetal ages during corticogenesis, and the brains were prepared for histological examination. Early-enucleated fetuses (operated prior to embryonic day 77) showed morphological changes at the level of the thalamus and the cortex. In the thalamus, there was a loss of lamination and a decrease in size of the lateral geniculate nucleus. There was a decrease in the size of the inferior pulvinar, but there was no change in the lateral pulvinar. The… CONTINUE READING
