NSCs derived from mouse telencephalons at embryonic day 11.
As shown in Figure 2, the telencephalons of both birds and mammals have a large region of pallium (shaded in medium gray), which is the upper part of the telencephalon developmentally, and which overlies the subpallium (shaded in darker gray).
Previously, most of the pallial areas in birds were labeled with terms that used the suffix "-striatum," in the mistaken belief that the avian telencephalon consisted mostly of hypertrophied basal ganglia, derived from subpallial tissue.
