This chapter reviews studies that address the topological arrangement of the histogenic primordial within the forebrain at the neural plate and embryonic neural tube stages. It discusses a neuromeric (segmentation) model which proposes that dorsoventral (D/V) and anteroposterior (A/P) patterning mechanisms subdivide the embryonic forebrain into longitudinal and transverse domains. It describes studies that define the patterning mechanisms that regulate expression of genes whose function is linked to the development of specific histogenic anlage. Finally, the chapter describes genetic studies that define the function of several classes of transcription factors in regulating forebrain patterning, morphogenesis, and differentiation.

Keywords:   histogenic primordia, forebrain, neural plate, dorsoventral patterning, anteroposterior patterning, longitudinal domain, transverse domain
