To obtain the correct number of each neuronal subtype, there must be mechanisms to control progenitor pool size, and factors that control the differentiation of these progenitors into specific types of neurons. In the dorsal spinal cord, recent advances have begun to define these mechanisms. Eight dorsal interneuron populations have now been classified according to their expression of molecular markers, their projection patterns, neurotransmitter type, and/or function. The ability to identify… CONTINUE READING
