Regressive phenomena are common during the development of the nervous tissue. Among them, naturally occurring cell death has been observed in several regions of the nervous system. Cell death in the somatosensory cortex and medial cortical regions (hind limb, frontal cortex 1, frontal cortex 2, retrosplenial agranular, retrosplenial granular [Zilles K. et al. (1980) Anat. Embryol. 159, 335-360]) as well as in the cortical subplate (future subcortical white matter) in the rat mainly occurs… Expand
In situ labeling of apoptotic cell death in the cerebral cortex and thalamus of rats during development
TLDR
Differences in the number of apoptotic cells between cortex and thalamus suggest that apoptotic cell death may have a different functional significance in the two brain areas. Expand
Naturally occurring cell death in the developing cerebral cortex of the rat. Evidence of apoptosis-associated internucleosomal DNA fragmentation
TLDR
Results show that naturally occurring cell death (programmed cell death) in the developing cerebral cortex has the morphology of apoptosis and is associated with endonuclease activation. Expand
Activation of Microglia during Developmentally Regulated Cell Death in the Cerebral Cortex
TLDR
It is suggested that IgG normally present within neuronal subsets in the developing cerebral cortex could serve to locally regulate the expression of complement receptors on microglia. Expand
Cell death in the male and female rat medial prefrontal cortex during early postnatal development
TLDR
The timing of cell death within the rat mPFC will inform study design in experiments that employ early environmental manipulations that might disrupt this process. Expand
Naturally occurring cell death and migration of microglial precursors in the quail retina during normal development
TLDR
Comparison of the chronotopographical pattern of distribution of apoptotic nuclei in the GCL with the patterns of tangential and radial migration of microglial precursors during quail retinal development neither supported nor refuted the hypothesis that ganglion cell death is the stimulus that triggers the entry and migration in the developing retina. Expand
Death of neurons in the neonatal rodent and primate globus pallidus occurs by a mechanism of apoptosis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cells in the developing mammalian globus pallidus die by a process of apoptosis and that by day 7 after birth many of the apoptotic cells possess a neuronal phenotype. Expand
Naturally occurring, postnatal cell death in the cerebral cortex of the micrencephalic rat induced by prenatal X-irradiation
TLDR
The results suggest that naturally occurring postnatal cell death in the cerebral cortex is reduced in micrencephalic rats produced after exposure to 100 cGy X-rays at embryonic day 15. Expand
Spatiotemporal distribution of dying neurons during early mouse development
TLDR
It is indicated that biotinylated annexin V can be used as a sensitive marker that detects apoptotic neurons, including their extensions at an early stage during development, and that apoptosis plays an important part during early morphogenesis of the central nervous system, and during early quantitative matching of brain‐derived neurotrophic factor and neurotrophicfactor 3 responsive postmitotic large clear neurons in the peripheral ganglia with their projection areas. Expand
Cytotoxic Effect of Brain Macrophages on Developing Neurons
TLDR
The results suggest that brain macrophages could favour the appearance of neuroregressive events which occur either during neurogenesis or in neurodegenerative diseases, implying intracerebral recruitment of mononuclear phagocytes. Expand
Dynamics of microglia in the developing rat brain
Entrance of mesodermal precursors into the developing CNS is the most well‐accepted origin of microglia. However, the contribution of proliferation and death of recruited microglial precursors to theExpand

NEURONAL DEATH IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND AGING OF THE CEREBRAL CORTEX OF THE MOUSE
TLDR
The results clearly demonstrate that there is a massive neuronal loss in the cerebral cortex during early postnatal development, greater in layers II‐IV than in layers V‐VI. Expand
Transient cells of the developing mammalian telencephalon are peptide-immunoreactive neurons
TLDR
Observations suggest that during the fetal and early postnatal development of the mammalian telencephalon the subplate cells function as neurons in synaptic circuitry that disappears by adulthood. Expand

TLDR
The corpus callosum of neonatal rats (5-day-old) has been investigated by electron microscopy and the amoeboid microglial cells, which are absent in the cortex, caudate nucleus, and spinal cord at the ages examined, are discussed. Expand

TLDR
Three patterns of cell death were characterized, in accordance with the sequence of cortical neurogenesis, the lateromedial pattern of the whole formation and growth of the GS-Syl and adjoining sulci, and the differences in the cortical thickness between the sulci and the gyral crown. Expand
Naturally occurring cell death during neural development

Evidence pertaining to a few of the critical questions about this phenomenon in vertebrate neurogenesis in vertebrates is considered. Expand
Some aspects of amoeboid microglia in the corpus callosum and neighbouring regions of neonatal rats.
TLDR
The present study clearly demonstrates that amoeboid microglia are active phagocytes, whose cytoplasm is heavily loaded with secretory granules (lysosomes) and give a positive reaction with PAS and acid phosphatase. Expand
