Previous studies using dissociated cell cultures of fetal rat brain have revealed considerable regional diversity as well as sex steroid-independent sex differences in developmental schedules of dopaminergic neurons. Because these phenomena might be related to glial heterogeneity, cultures of dissociated male and female diencephalon, mesencephalon, and rhombencephalon of gestational day 14 rats were investigated with respect to the development of astrocytic markers. Cultures were incubated for… CONTINUE READING
