Figure 3: Coronal hemisections of the mouse telencephalon at E12.5 showing morphologically defined structures and the progenitor subdomains. The ventricular zone (VZ) extends along the DV axis and contains proliferative neuronal precursor cells. The subventricular zone (SVZ) (shown by the blue dashed lines) also contains precursor cells. Progenitor cells migrate radially and tangentially from these zones to populate the specific areas of the brain. The dashed red lines indicate the approximate boundaries between distinct telencephalon progenitor domains. Abbreviations: MGE/LGE medial/lateral ganglionic eminence; MP: medial pallium, DP: dorsal pallium LP: lateral pallium, VP: ventral pallium. Picture taken from [15].
