Because of its evolutionary grade and its relative simplicity, the Urodele brain provides an excellent archetype for the study of forebrain development. Early experiments on Primary Induction took advantage of the Urodele's manipulatability and ease of use, but due to the fact that its ectoderm was very readily neuralized Anurans (especially Xenopus) became the vertebrate of choice for early developmental neurobiology. Recent advances in the molecular biology of neuralization in Xenopus may… CONTINUE READING
