The Germinal Cell, Histogenesis, and Lineages of Nerve Cells

  • Marcus Jacobson


From its inception by Wilhelm His in 1887, the conncept of subclasses of germinal cells that are the progenitors of corresponding classes of neurons and glial cells has been opposed by the concept of multipotential progenitors, put forward by Vignal (1888), Schaper (1849a, b), and Koelliker (1897). Both concepts have continued to exert powerful heuristic effects for more than a century.
