FGF signaling is required for determination of otic neuroblasts in the chick embryo.
Instead, the investigators intended to use hypothermia (cooling the animals to 1-4[degrees]C by laying them on ice for about six minutes) to immobilize neonatal mice and rats while carrying out intracranial injections of virions or neuroblasts.
Neuroblasts should be negative in order to make this diagnosis.
As a model system for understanding cancellation mechanisms of biological noise in a multicellular organism, the researchers looked at a particular development stage of the visual system in fruit flies: the propagation of the so-called "proneural wave." during which cells of a type called neuroepithelial cell differentiate into neuroblasts (cells in the process of dividing into neurons).
A: Low-power histology of the mass (hematoxylin and eosin stain, original magnification x4) shows a nodular proliferation of small neuroblasts in a background of fibrillary neuropil.
In the vehicle-treated group, DCX + cells (29.0 [+ or -] 4.5 cells) as neuroblasts were easily found in the SGZ of the DG [Figure 2]A.

Most of the cases reported in the elderly (including ours) occurred in the hemisphere of the cerebellum, presumably due to migration of the undifferentiated neuroblasts from the posterior medullary velum laterally [5].
