In 1962, Altmanl proposed that neurogenesis takes place in the cerebral cortex of adult rats. Between 1963 and 1969, Altman and coworkers found adult and juvenile neurogenesis to be especially prominent in the granule cell populations of both the hippocampus and olfactory Kaplan and Hinds” subsequently showed that these newly formed cells had the ultrastructural characteristics of neurons. In the meantime, Bayer and Altman” obtained circumstantial evidence that the number of granule cells in… 

Postnatal Neurogenesis Beyond Rodents: the Groundbreaking Research of Joseph Altman and Gopal Das

This Cerebellar Classic is devoted to the groundbreaking work of Altman and his graduate student and, subsequently, fellow faculty member, Gopal Das, on postnatal neurogenesis using tritiated thymidine autoradiography to tag newly formed neurons in the cerebellum of cats.

Neural Stem Cells in the Adult Hippocampus

The current understanding regarding neurogenesis in the adult dentate gyrus, the extent to which primitive neural progenitor cells in the hippocampus can be manipulated in vitro and in vivo, and the implications of hippocampal neuroGenesis for brain function and plasticity are summarized.

Generation of neurons and astrocytes from isolated cells of the adult mammalian central nervous system.

Cells of the adult mouse striatum have the capacity to divide and differentiate into neurons and astrocytes.

Mobilization of Neural Precursors in the Adult Central Nervous System

Looking forward, it seems clear that the successful therapeutic mobilization of neural progenitor cells will depend on the precise modulation of local signaling that spans from the recruitment of endogenous stem cells to the fine functional tuning of mature neurons and glia that are inserted into the preexisting circuitry of the adult brain.

Dynamics of Hippocampal Neurogenesis in Adult Humans

Neuronal stem cells in the brain of adult vertebrates

The neuronal precursors of the adult brain could be used as a source of cells for neuronal transplantation and could be manipulated in vivo or in vitro to introduce genes into the brain.

There is a continuing addition and/or turnover of the glial cells in the dentate gyrus of sexually mature monkeys, but, in contrast to the massive neurogenesis reported in adult rodents, the production of new neurons could not be detected after puberty.

Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis: Regulation and Possible Functional and Clinical Correlates

The role that immature and mature adult-born neurons play in this circuitry is still mostly unknown but it could prove fundamental to understand hippocampal-dependent cognitive processes, the pathophysiology of depression, and the therapeutic effects of antidepressant medication in modulating behavior and mental health.

Cell Proliferation and Cytogenesis in the Mouse Hippocampus

The mapping of distribution of hippocampal mitoses and counting of their number allowed a more precise definition of the data concerning the disposition and age reduction of proliferative sites in Ammon's horn and the dentate gyrus in the mouse.



Autoradiographic and histological studies of postnatal neurogenesis. IV. Cell proliferation and migration in the anterior forebrain, with special reference to persisting neurogenesis in the olfactory bulb

The results established that the major target structure of cell production in the subependymal layer of the lateral ventricle in young‐adult rats is the olfactory bulb, with only moderate contribution made to the anterior neocortex and basal ganglia.

Neurogenesis and neuron regeneration in the olfactory system of mammals. II. Degeneration and reconstitution of the olfactory sensory neurons after axotomy

The retrograde degeneration affecting olfactory sensory neurons of rats after severance of their axons is described and the reconstitution of new neurons originating from stem cells located at the base of the Olfactory neuroepithelium is illustrated.

Autoradiographic and histological studies of postnatal neurogenesis. I. A longitudinal investigation of the kinetics, migration and transformation of cells incoorporating tritiated thymidine in neonate rats, with special reference to postnatal neurogenesis in some brain regions

It was established that cells multiplying in the ependymal and subependymal walls of the Olfactory ventricle migrate outward into the olfactory bulb, where they become differentiated into granule cells, and, to a lesser extent, other types of nerve cells of the cerebellar cortex.

An autoradiographic study of the time of origin and the pattern of granule cell migration in the dentate gyrus of the rat

The dentate gyrus of the rat contains about 600,000 granule cells. These small neurons are generated over a prolonged period from the 14th day of gestation until sime time after the second postnatal

The postnatal development of the main olfactory bulb of the rat.

The postnatal development from birth to 1 year of the main olfactory bulb was examined quantitatively and some primitive cells could still be found at one year of age and there was an increase in the total number of granule cells beyond day 30.

Behavioural effects of interference with the postnatal acquisition of hippocampal granule cells.

Irradiation of the infant rat hippocampus using a schedule derived from previous cerebellar autoradiographic and irradiation studies should reduce the population of granule cells without directly harming the prenatally-formed pyramidal cells of Amnion's horn.

Post-Natal Origin of Microneurones in the Rat Brain

Recent autoradiographic evidence from the laboratory is described which shows clearly that a large proportion of the short·axoned neurones present in various brain structures are formed after birth in the rat.

Autoradiographic and histological evidence of postnatal hippocampal neurogenesis in rats

It is postulated that undifferentiated cells migrate postnatally from the forebrain ventricles to the hippocampus where they become differentiated, implicating that they may function as receptors of gonadal hormones.

Autoradiographic investigation of cell proliferation in the brains of rats and cats

The results indicate that glia cells can multiply in the brains of young adult rats and adult cats and they support the possibility that new neurons may be formed in forebrain structures, both in rodents and carnivores.
