  • Golgi techniques, immunofluorescence for glial fibrillary acidic (GFA) protein, and electron microscopy (EM) were used to determine the nature of radial glia in the cerebrum of human fetuses ranging from 7 to 20 weeks of ovulation age. Successful Golgi impregnation of radial fibers was achieved in fetuses 12 weeks of age and older. These fibers spanned the entire thickness of the hemisphere. At the pial surface many of them branched and terminated in pyramidal end feet expansions. Indirect… CONTINUE READING
