Reelin and apolipoprotein E receptor 2 in the embryonic and mature brain: effects of an evolutionary change in the apoER2 gene.


In the mature cerebral cortex of higher vertebrates, neurons are arranged in layers, each layer containing neurons of the same functional class. The cortical layering pattern is laid down during development by migration of young post-mitotic neurons along glial fibres to their correct positions in the cortical plate. The mechanics of whole-cell movement are… (More)
