M ITOTIC neurones are seldom, if ever, seen after birth in the brains of mammals, from which it is com­ monly concluded that neurogenesis is a pre-natal pheno­ menon. This conclusion is not often questioned, even though post-natal neurogenesis in some brain structures has been well established for some time.
