Morphological Development of the Hippocampus

Show Summary Details


This chapter considers how the hippocampus develops both from the perspective of overall organization and from that of individual cells. It begins by summarizing present knowledge on neuronal generation and migration in the hippocampus. It then addresses the development of major hippocampal connections by describing determinants of pathfinding, target layer recognition, and synapse formation of hippocampal afferents.

Keywords: hippocampal development; hippocampal connections; pathfinding; target layer recognition; synapse formation; neuronal generation; migration

Chapter.  12428 words.  Illustrated.
