An ultrastructural analysis of prenatal gliogenesis and neuronal-glial relationships in the developing fetal brain was carried out using reduced osmium and periodic acid-thiocarbohydrazide-silver proteinate to stain selectively the glycogen content of the glial population. Gliophilic neuronal migration was confirmed in the human fetus, with radial glial fibers (RGF) acting as obligatory corridors for neuronal migration in the prospective neocortex and underlying intermediate zone (IZ).
