The revolutionary developmental biology of Wilhelm His, Sr.
TLDR
The embryologist Wilhelm His, Sr. was the first scientist to study embryos using paraffin histology, serial sectioning and three-dimensional modelling and his work has potential importance to the disciplines of evolutionary developmental biology and mechanobiology.
Axonal Projection Patterns of the Dorsal Interneuron Populations in the Embryonic Hindbrain
TLDR
The available data regarding the association between the specification of early-born dorsal interneuron subpopulations in the hindbrain and their axonal circuitry development and fate is reviewed, as well as the present existing knowledge on molecular effectors underlying the process of axonal growth are reviewed.
Understanding Molecular Evolution and Development of the Organ of Corti Can Provide Clues for Hearing Restoration.
TLDR
Foxg1 and Lmx1a mutants that radically alter the OC cell assembly and its innervation when mutated and may have driven the evolutionary reorganization of the basilar papilla into an OC in ancestral Therapsids are reported on.
Npr2 null mutants show initial overshooting followed by reduction of spiral ganglion axon projections combined with near-normal cochleotopic projection
TLDR
It is found that a variable degree of embryonic extension of auditory afferents beyond the boundaries of the anterior cochlear nucleus into the cerebellum that emanates only from apical spiral ganglion neurons is found in Neurod1 mutant mice.
Neuronal Migration Generates New Populations of Neurons That Develop Unique Connections, Physiological Properties and Pathologies
TLDR
Combined, these data identify unique migratory properties of various neuronal populations that allow them to adopt new connections but also sets them up for unique pathologies.
Vision and retina evolution: How to develop a retina
Ear transplantations reveal conservation of inner ear afferent pathfinding cues
TLDR
It is shown that inner ear afferents can navigate to the vestibular nuclei following a delay in afferent entry and when the ear was from a different species, the mouse, which indicates that guidance molecules are expressed for some time and are conserved across amniotes.
Development in the Mammalian Auditory System Depends on Transcription Factors
TLDR
The mammalian auditory system development is integrated to provide comprehensive insights beyond the limited perception driven by singular investigations of cochlear neurons, coChlear hair cells, and cochLear nuclei.
Neurog1, Neurod1, and Atoh1 are essential for spiral ganglia, cochlear nuclei, and cochlear hair cell development
TLDR
The cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate the development of auditory system are integrated and provide novel insights into the restoration of hearing loss, beyond the limited generation of lost sensory neurons and hair cells.

Crypto-rhombomeres of the mouse medulla oblongata, defined by molecular and morphological features
TLDR
The analysis identified an internal molecular organization of the migrated pontine nuclei that reflects a differential segmental origin of their neurons as assessed by Hox gene expression.
Development of the nuclei and cell migration in the medulla oblongata
TLDR
The immunohistochemical analyses carried out on chimeras generated in experiment V revealed the existence of fibers in marginal zones prior to the onset of the migration of cell bodies, and support the suggestion that such tangential fibers serve as guidance substrates for the subpial migrations of cells in the medulla oblongata.
Rostrocaudal nuclear relationships in the avian medulla oblongata: A fate map with quail chick chimeras
TLDR
This analysis in general showed that there is little intermixing between adjacent pseudorhombomeric domains, although some neuronal populations in the vestibular and trigeminal columns, as well as in the reticular formation and pontine nuclei, do migrate selectively into the host hindbrain.
Morphological Fate of Rhombomeres in Quail/Chick Chimeras: A Segmental Analysis of Hindbrain Nuclei
TLDR
The results represent the first anatomical analysis of the mature avian hindbrain in terms of rhombomere‐derived domains and the cranial nerve motor nuclei showed rhombomeric origins consistent with the patterns described in early embryos.
Molecular regionalization of the developing amphioxus neural tube challenges major partitions of the vertebrate brain
TLDR
Comparison with vertebrates indicates that the vertebrate thalamus, pretectum, and midbrain domains jointly correspond to a single amphioxus region, which is termed Di-Mesencephalic primordium (DiMes), which suggests that these domains have a common developmental and evolutionary origin.
SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES IN LANCELET AND CRANIATE NERVOUS SYSTEMS
TLDR
The central nervous system and some sense organs of lancelets show similarities to and differences from those of craniates, and topological similarity in this region of the neuraxis apparently does not extend to exact replication of cellular fate in the two groups.
Gaskell revisited: new insights into spinal autonomics necessitate a revised motor neuron nomenclature
TLDR
A new nomenclature is proposed that takes new insights into account into the organization of the autonomic nervous system into a cranial parasympathetic and a spinal sympathetic division and avoids the conceptual misunderstandings and incorrect interpretation of limited and technically inferior data inherent in the old nomenClature.
Transformation of the cerebellum into more ventral brainstem fates causes cerebellar agenesis in the absence of Ptf1a function
TLDR
It is shown that the gene encoding pancreatic transcription factor PTF1A, which is inactivated in human patients with cerebellar agenesis, is required to segregate the cerebellum from more ventral extracerebellar fates.
