Experiments involving the heterotopic transplantation of neocortex during development have indicated that the efferent connections maintained by the transplant as well as other organizational features are appropriate to the transplant's regional locale within the host cortex, rather than to its site of origin within the donor cortex. These findings would seem to be consistent with the idea that developing cortical neurons lack any rigid regional specification. To examine this further, we made… CONTINUE READING
