The fate map of the early neural plate and neural fold has been established at the cephalic level by using the quail-chick marker system (Le Douarin, 1969,1973). The experimental design comprised the replacement of definite territories belonging to the neural plate and neural folds in the chick embryo by their counterparts from quail embryos at the same developmental stage. This technique is referred to as the isotopic and isochronic exchange of preneural tissues between these two species. The… CONTINUE READING
