  • The subpial granular layer (SGL) is a transient accumulation of tangentially migrating small granular neurons in the marginal zone of the developing fetal neocortex. It has recently attracted attention as a possible additional source of future cortical interneurons, or even as a putative precursor pool for generation of Cajal-Retzius cells. The discovery of the SGL is generally attributed to Otto Ranke and it is usually claimed that the SGL is specific for human brain. The aim of this review is… CONTINUE READING
