Whereas in mammals postnatal neurogenesis, gliogenesis, and angiogenesis appear to be kept at low rates, in fish the capability for the production of new brain cells during adulthood is very pronounced. Many of the newly generated cells originate from germinal layers that maintain their proliferative activity during adulthood. By employing incorporation of the thymidine analogue 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine (BrdU) into mitotic active cells, we have quantitatively mapped such proliferation zones in… CONTINUE READING
