Gene Expression defining boundaries in the brain at CS22

Here data from immunohistochemical experiments has been compared with the digitally painted CS22 model. When the sections are aligned it becomes evident that that the gene expression patterns define boundaries between different anatomical regions:

Black arrowhead - diencephalon/telencephalon boundary.

Black arrow - pallial/subpallial boundary.

White arrowhead - boundary between lateral and medial ganglionic eminences.

White arrow - boundary between the prethalamus (prosomere 3) and the hypothalamus.
