The Neural Crest and Its Derivatives
In 1868 Wilhelm His discovered the neural crest and he traced the origin of spinal and cranial ganglia from the neural crest (Fig. 4.1). These discoveries raised several theoritical problems—the origin and boundaries of the neural crest, the modes of cell migration, and the fates of cells of neural crest origin. For the past century these problems—origin, migration, and fate—have been the manun conceptual platforms from which research programs on neural crest development have been launched.
