Programmed cell death in type II neuroblast lineages is required for central complex development in the Drosophila brain

The number of neurons generated by neural stem cells is dependent upon the regulation of cell proliferation and by programmed cell death. Recently, novel neural stem cells that amplify neural proliferation through intermediate neural progenitors, called type II neuroblasts, have been discovered, which are active during brain development in Drosophila. We… CONTINUE READING
