During embryonic development, cells not only increase in number, they also undergo specialization and differentiate into diverse cell types that are organized into different tissues and organs. Nervous system development, for example, involves a complex series of events such as neuronal and astroglial differentiation that are coordinated among adjacent cells. The organization of growth and differentiation may be mediated, at least partly, by exchange of small ions and molecules via… CONTINUE READING
