Abstract

How and when do vertebrate neural precursor cells choose their fates? While some studies suggest a series of commitments on the road to fate choice, many recent experiments indicate that precursor fate choices can often be changed. Additionally, the identification of common gene control mechanisms in precursors suggest that these cells share fundamental properties throughout development.
