Gliogenesis during embryonic development in the rat

With the aid of thymidine-H3 autoradiography gliogenesis in the rat brain was seen to start during embryonic stages, which might continue into the postnatal stages of development. Gliogenesis followed a caudo-rostral gradient closely following neurogenesis. Ependymogenesis was found to occur in parallel with gliogenesis.
