Segmental patterns of neuronal development in the chick hindbrain.

Abstract

Identification of specific neuronal populations and their projections in the developing hindbrain reveals a segmental organization in which pairs of metameric epithelial units cooperate to generate the repeating sequence of cranial branchiomotor nerves. Neurogenesis also follows a two-segment repeat, suggesting parallels with insect pattern formation.
