Hi, we have recently started to work on corpus callosum formation in the
developing mamalian forebrain. First we performed a pilot study to see the
callosol axon projections on E 14 and E 17 mouse foetus brain regarding
the reference studies. We could see the callosal axons on the coronal
sections as shown in the references . But we decided to run the study with
rat foetuses instead of mice because of the lack of the facilities. However
we could not find any spesific timing information in the literature about
CC formation in rats . We wonder when CC spesificly begins and ends to form
during the rat gestation and also where we suppose to see the growing
callosal axons on E 14, 15 and 17 on the coronal histological sections in
I would greatly appreciate if you could inform me about these issues .
Thank you in advance for any information you can suggest me.
