Development of the Nervous System presents a broad and basic treatment of the established and evolving principles of neural development as exemplified by key experiments and observations from past and recent times. The text is organized ontogenically. It begins with the emergence of the neural primordium and takes a chapter-by-chapter approach in succeeding events in neural development: patterning and growth of the nervous system, neuronal determination, axonal navigation and targeting, neuron survival and death, synapse formation and developmental plasticity. Finally, in the last chapter, with the construction phase nearing completion, we examine the emergence of behavior. This new edition reflects the complete modernization of the field that has been achieved through the intensive application of molecular, genetic, and cell biological approaches. It is richly illustrated with color photographs and original drawings. Combined with the clear and concise writing, the illustrations make this a book that is well suited to students approaching this intriguing field for the first time. Features Thorough survey of the field of neural development Concise but complete, suitable for a one semester course on upper level undergraduate or graduate level Focus on fundamental principles of organogenesis in the nervous system Integrates information from a variety of model systems, relating them to human nervous system development, including disorders of development Systematically develops knowledge from the description of key experiments and results Organized ontologically Carefully edited to be presented in one voice New edition thoroughly updated and revised to include major new findings All figures in full color, updated and revised Specific attention on revising the chapter on cognitive and behavioral development to provide a foundation and outlook towards those very fast moving areas Instructor website with figure bank and test questions Benefits The only thorough textbook of Developmental Neuroscience on the market Carefully structured and edited to map onto the syllabus of most developmental neuroscience courses Priced to be affordable for undergraduates even in addition to broader textbooks Carefully constructed instructor's website Specifically designed to make teaching of complicated subjects easy and fun for instructors and students alike

Cilia are tiny microtubule-based organelles projecting from the plasma membrane of practically all cells in the body. In the past 10 years a flurry of research has indicated a crucial role of this long-neglected organelle in the development and function of the central nervous system. A common theme of these studies is the critical dependency of signal transduction of the Sonic hedgehog, and more recently, Wnt signaling pathways upon cilia to regulate fate decisions and morphogenesis. Both primary and motile cilia also play crucial roles in the function of the nervous system, including the primary processing of sensory information, the control of body mass, and higher functions such as behavior and cognition, serving as "antennae" for neurons to sense and process their environment. In this book we describe the structure and function of cilia and the various tissues throughout the brain and spinal cord that are dependent upon cilia for their proper development and function.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the development of the human central nervous system (CNS) in the context of its many developmental disorders due to genetic, environmental, and hypoxic/ischemic causes. The introductory chapters give an overview of the development of the human brain and the spinal cord, the mechanisms of development as obtained in experimental studies of various invertebrates and vertebrates, and the causes of congenital malformations. In the main part, the developmental disorders of the human brain and the spinal cord are presented in a regional, more or less segmental way, starting with neurulation and neural tube defects, and ending with developmental disorders of the cerebral cortex. These are underlined by carefully chosen clinical case studies, including imaging data and, when available, postmortem verification of the developmental disorders involved. Numerous color photographs and illustrations complement the text. This second edition emphasizes the prenatal diagnosis by ultrasound, MRI, and DTI and implements new classifications of developmental disorders.

The previous two editions of the Human Nervous System have been the standard reference for the anatomy of the central and peripheral nervous system of the human. The work has attracted nearly 2,000 citations, demonstrating that it has a major influence in the field of neuroscience. The 3e is a complete and updated revision, with new chapters covering genes and anatomy, gene expression studies, and glia cells. The book continues to be an excellent companion to the Atlas of the Human Brain, and a common nomenclature throughout the book is enforced. Physiological data, functional concepts, and correlates to the neuroanatomy of the major model systems (rat and mouse) as well as brain function round out the new edition. Adopts standard nomenclature following the new scheme by Paxinos, Watson, and Puelles and aligned with the Mai et al. Atlas of the Human Brain (new edition in 2007) Full color throughout with many new and significantly enhanced illustrations Provides essential reference information for users in conjunction with brain atlases for the identification of brain structures, the connectivity between different areas, and to evaluate data collected in anatomical, physiological, pharmacological, behavioral, and imaging studies

The publication of the fifth volume completes this historic series of atlases. Available for the first time as a set, this award winning series provides the only complete record of the development of the human central nervous system from spinal cord gestation through the third trimester. The contents of the atlases are organized by coronal, sagittal, and horizontal planes of sectioning to ensure that nearly every structure in the developing brain is represented pictorially. Each volume provides two page spreads containing high resolution black and white images on one side and ghost images on the other with unabbreviated labels to apprise readers of the exact structures identified. The final volume provides a concluding essay that summarizes major events of CNS development, while offering a theoretical account of the morphogenetic processes involved. For more details, readers can access information specific to each volume: Vol. 1: Cat. No. 1420 The Spinal Cord from Gestational Week 4 to the 4th Postnatal Month Vol. 2: Cat. No. 1421 The Human Brain During the Second Trimester Vol. 3: Cat. No. 1422 The Human Brain During the Third Trimester Vol. 4: Cat. No. 1423 The Human Brain During the Late First Trimester Vol. 5: Cat. No. 1424 The Human Brain During the Early First Trimester From the 1960s through the 1980s, the work of legendary pioneers, Shirley Bayer and Joseph Altman chronicled the development of the rat nervous system. In the 1990s, they shifted their attention to humans when they realized how little was known about the development of the human central nervous system. Many disorders resulting from abnormal neural deficits could be better understood if normal development was itself better known. Bayer and Altman decided to apply their knowledge of rat nervous system development to humans by directly examining histological sections of normal human specimens. Funding their own work, they took over 10,000 photographs of the best preserved specimens available. Each of the photos was then scanned to create digitalized files that could be further examined with sophisticated equipment, including 3- dimensional reconstruction software. This set of atlases is the result of this effort. "We embarked on this ambitious project for two reasons. First, to fill a gaping void in the literature. ...Second, we hoped that by extrapolating from the experimental data obtained in animals, we could go beyond a mere narrative account of developmental landmarks in human CNS development to a dynamic analysis of some of the morphogenetic processes involved. What we were surprised to find is that our detailed examination of the full course of CNS development in normal human embryos and fetuses has come to shed new light on some of the basic mechanisms involved in the production, migration, differentiation, and assembly of CNS neurons...." This information is included in an extended monograph in Volume 5 that will no doubt serve as a launching pad for future research. Altman and Bayer, working for three decades at Purdue and Indiana Universities, revolutionized the research methods and pioneered the results that are available today.

The genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms of neural development are essential for understanding evolution and disorders of neural systems. Recent advances in genetic, molecular, and cell biological methods have generated a massive increase in new information, but there is a paucity of comprehensive and up-to-date syntheses, references, and historical perspectives on this important subject. The Comprehensive Developmental Neuroscience series is designed to fill this gap, offering the most thorough coverage of this field on the market today and addressing all aspects of how the nervous system and its components develop. Particular attention is paid to the effects of abnormal development and on new psychiatric/neurological treatments being developed based on our increased understanding of developmental mechanisms. Each volume in the series consists of review style articles that average 15-20pp and feature numerous illustrations and full references. Volume 1 offers 48 high level articles devoted mainly to patterning and cell type specification in the developing central and peripheral nervous systems. Series offers 144 articles for 2904 full color pages addressing ways in which the nervous system and its components develop Features leading experts in various subfields as Section Editors and article Authors All articles peer reviewed by Section Editors to ensure accuracy, thoroughness, and scholarship Volume 1 sections include coverage of mechanisms which: control regional specification, regulate proliferation of neuronal progenitors and control differentiation and survival of specific neuronal subtypes, and controlling development of non-neural cells
