Thyroid hormone induces cerebellar neuronal migration and Bergmann glia differentiation through epidermal growth factor/mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway.

Cerebellar development in the postnatal period is mainly characterized by an intense cellular proliferation in the external granular layer, followed by migration of granular cells in the molecular layer along the Bergmann glia (BG) fibers. Cerebellar ontogenesis undergoes dramatic modulation by thyroid hormones (THs), although their mechanism of action in… (More)
