Prenatal brain development is mainly accomplished by extensive proliferation of neuronal precursor cells whereas postnatal brain growth in mammals is mainly mediated by the growth of those post-mitotic nerve cells. The neuron size and the branching pattern of the dendritic tree are highly controlled during development to enable the proper connectivity of… CONTINUE READING
