Demonstration of Proliferative Capacity of the GFAP-Immunoreactive Radial Glia
Our earlier findings in the cerebellum (Bascó et al. 1977) and now in the fore- brain suggest that the proliferation of the glia involves considerably differentiated cells as judged by morphological criteria such as position, ramification pattern, and cytoplasmic and nuclear structure. A spectacular example of this phenomenon was presented in Sect. 3.2, where the cerebellar Bergmann glia were shown to undergo divisions while having a well-developed fiber system extended to the pial surface.
