Abstract

The olfactory placode and its derivative, the olfactory pit, give rise to several different populations of migrating cells, which contribute to drive the organization of the prosencephalon, but also to form a part of the central neuroendocrine compartments. Some cell types are seemingly transient and can play a role in the establishment of the final connections. The understanding of the mechanisms involved in the migration and differentiation of these cell populations can give an insight on the interplay between peripheral structures and central nervous system and on the mechanisms of commitment, phenotype selection and control for neuroendocrine cells able to selectively "colonize" the brain.
