Development of neural fates from ectoderm is accompanied by the blockage of BMP signals at both protein and mRNA levels. Recent work has employed zebrafish, chick and mouse in addition to amphibians as models. Genetics has supplemented experimental embryology in enriching the understanding of the mechanism of neural induction and in posing new questions.
