Allogeneic embryonic CNS tissue grafts placed in the mature brain are classically considered to lack significant long-range efferents. This problem was reexamined using 'green' cells from mice expressing ubiquitously an 'enhanced' green fluorescent protein as an alternative to classical tract tracing methods. The present study shows that fetal cortical neurons (E15; occipital origin) grafted in the occipitoparietal region of the adult cortex project massively throughout ipsilateral… CONTINUE READING
