Schematic presentation of migratory routes of excitatory and inhibitory neurons in the developing brain (adapted from a review by Tan and Shi, WIREs Dev Biol 2012. doi: 10.1002/wdev.88). Inhibitory neurons are shown in the left side. Most of the GABAergic neurons are born in the ventral part of the telencephalon, in the subpallium, and more specifically in the medial ganglionic eminence (MGE) and the lateral ganglionic eminence (LGE), in the subpallial septum, and the embryonic preoptic area (POA), and they migrate in a tangential way to the cortex. St: striatum; LP: lateral pallium; H: hippocampus.
