SUMMARY The first mathematically unbiased estimates of neocortical cell numbers are presented from the developing pig brain, including a full description of tissue processing and optimal sampling for application of the stereological optical fractionator method in this species. The postnatal development of neocortical neurons and glial cells from the experimental Göttingen minipig was compared with the postnatal development of neocortical neurons in the domestic pig. A significant postnatal… Expand
The temporal pattern of postnatal neurogenesis found in the neocortex of the Göttingen minipig brain
TLDR
The Göttingen minipig (G-mini) is increasingly used as a non-primate model for human neurological diseases and may serve as a valuable model for the studies of ongoing neurogenesis in the living brain, but the application of G-mini as human disease models may be inappropriate before day 100. Expand
Postnatal neurogenesis in the hippocampal dentate gyrus and subventricular zone of the Göttingen minipig
TLDR
This study quantifies cell proliferation in the two major neurogenic regions of the postnatal brain - the subventricular zone of the lateral ventricle (SVZ) and the hippocampal dentate gyrus (DG) - at two separate points during the lifespan of the minipig to show a continued postnatal neurogenesis in these regions. Expand
The postnatal development of cerebellar Purkinje cells in the Göttingen minipig estimated with a new stereological sampling technique – the vertical bar fractionator
TLDR
The study demonstrates that a pronounced postnatal neurogenesis in Purkinje cell number and perikaryon volume is part of the growth and development of the cerebellum in the Göttingen minipig. Expand
Neocortical and hippocampal neuron and glial cell numbers in the rhesus monkey
TLDR
The results are phylogenetically consistent, apart from the neuron/glia ratio, which is remarkably higher than what is found in other species. Expand
Total neocortical cell number in the mysticete brain
TLDR
The aim was to estimate the total cell number, cortical volume and cell density in the entire mysticete neocortex and compare thetotal cell number in the auditory cortex with that of the visual cortex using stereological methods and to compare these neocortical features to those of other mammals to forward understanding of the evolution of the mammalian brain. Expand
Neocortical glial cell numbers in human brains
TLDR
The study showed that the different subpopulations of glial cells behave differently as a function of age; the number of oligodendrocytes showed a significant 27% decrease over adult life and a strong correlation to the total number of neurons while the total astrocyte number is constant through life. Expand
Unbiased cell quantification reveals a continued increase in the number of neocortical neurones during early post‐natal development in mice
TLDR
Delayed acquisition of NeuN by neurones in the deepest neocortical layers and continued addition of oligodendroglia to the neocortex suggested that neocorticals maturation should be regarded as an ongoing process continuing into the young adult mouse. Expand
Development of the entorhinal cortex occurs via parallel lamination during neurogenesis
TLDR
The pig is examined using an understudied model in neuroanatomy and development, the pig, and supplement the research with BrdU labeling in the developing mouse EC to characterize the developing EC in a novel animal model and outline in detail the formation of the EC. Expand
Development of the Entorhinal Cortex Occurs via Parallel Lamination During Neurogenesis
TLDR
The developing EC is characterized in a novel animal model and outline in detail the formation of the EC, providing insight into how the periarchicortex forms in the brain, which differs remarkably to the inside-out lamination of the neocortex. Expand
Age-Related Changes in the Primary Motor Cortex of Newborn to Adult Domestic Pig Sus scrofa domesticus
TLDR
This study analyzes the cytoarchitecture and distribution of neural cells expressing the calcium-binding proteins (CaBPs) (calretinin, CR; parvalbumin, PV) throughout M1 of newborn, young and adult pigs and confirms the pig brain is a valuable translational animal model during development. Expand

Neocortical neuron number in humans: Effect of sex and age
TLDR
Sex and age were the main determinants of the total number of neurons in the human neocortex, whereas body size, per se, had no influence on neuron number. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that fascicles of radial fibres facilitate neuronal migration to the distant cortical plate through a complex assembly of closely-packed cells and processes that compose the developing primate telencephalon. Expand
Total number of cells in the human newborn telencephalic wall
The total cell numbers were estimated in the neocortical part of the human telencephalon in 10 normal brains of newborn babies within four major developmental zones: the cortical plate/marginal zone,Expand
Adult-generated hippocampal and neocortical neurons in macaques have a transient existence
TLDR
It is found that the dentate gyrus had many more BrdUrd-labeled cells than either neocortical area, and the number of new cells in all three areas declined by 9 wk after Brd Urd labeling, suggesting that some of the new cells have a transient existence. Expand
Specification of cerebral cortical areas.
TLDR
The radial unit model provides a framework for understanding cerebral evolution, epigenetic regulation of the parcellation of cytoarchitectonic areas, and insight into the pathogenesis of certain cortical disorders in humans. Expand

The total number of cells--including both neurons and glial cells - was estimated in the neocortical part of the human fetal telencephalon in 22 normal brains within four major developmental zones:Expand
Immunohistochemical visualization of neurons and specific glial cells for stereological application in the porcine neocortex
TLDR
A battery of immunohistochemical protocols for staining of perfusion fixed porcine brain tissue processed as free floating cryostat-, vibratome- or paraffin sections are established to facilitate future stereological studies of the neuronal and glial cell populations in experimental neurological diseases in the pig.

Neuronal migration, with special reference to developing human brain: a review.
TLDR
The intervening migrations, particularly in the human nervous system, form the subject of this review and are suggested that the special relationships involved in these various migrations are probably mediated by cell surface properties, and that such surface properties will come to be defined through analysis of reaggregation tissue cultures, experimental and natural chimeras, and by immunological definition of antigens on CNS cells at different stages of development.

TLDR
The data of the present study support the existence of substantial postnatal neurogenesis in humans for the 35 cortical areas studied and show a 60–78% increase in total cortical neuron number above the birth value from postnatal ages 24 to 72 months. Expand
Synaptogenesis in the prefrontal cortex of rhesus monkeys.
TLDR
The finding that synaptic density is relatively stable from early adolescence through puberty (the plateau period) is indicative of the importance, in primates, of a consistent and high synaptic density during the formative years when learning experiences are most intense. Expand
