The rostral region of vertebrate neural tubes develops into three morphologically distinct swellings or the primary brain vesicles by differential proliferation of neuroepithelial territories: the forebrain, midbrain, and hind brain (Ishikawa et al., 2012), each of brain vesicles may be composed of several smaller repetitive units known as neuromeres (Nieuwenhuys, 1998).
The text includes an introductory mini-atlas of the rat brain for beginning neuroanatomy students, and has been revised to consider new ideas in developmental genetics, especially those relating to neuromeres. New terms have been adopted in the cingulate area that may help clarify their relationship in human and rat brains.
