new section on migration
...has been added but needs work PRH969 14:02, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
This needs A LOT of work. 18.104.22.168 04:19, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
- do realize this. Feel free to make your contribution PRH969 13:29, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
I've just started a new section, patterning. It needs input about the rostrocaudal axis and HOX genes. I will get round to this soon hopefully, as well as updating neural migration. Feel free to edit away too Snellios (talk) 23:56, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
There is also a page Neural development in humans, very similar, but there was no link from here to there and vice versa. Added to "see also". Specialist attention needed. --CopperKettle 18:30, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
Neural Induction, Neurotrophic Hypothesis, Synapse Formation
- Very nice to see all this information being added. While I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth, I wonder if there is anything you can do to make the added material more accessible to a wider group of readers? Ideally an ordinary undergraduate, or even advanced high school student, should be able to get the gist of a Wikipedia article on a broad topic like this.

It's a very good point. Having a separate page called "Brain Development" would have been helpful to provide a general introduction, but a "Brain Development" search directs the reader to this page, which is really quite technical. I will try to add some material to make the page more accessible for the general reader. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Anirvan0419 (talk • contribs) 12:12, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Can anyone help with a timeline for completion of synaptic development in humans?
"Evolution of Brain Development" Section.
This section has a lot of issues, but I don't know enough about the subject to fix them:
- No citations in the entire section
- Shows bias: "These basic emotions were not developed enough for these species to love and care for their offspring properly."
- Unsubstantiated: "These underdeveloped emotions might have led the parents to kill their own offspring if a predator that they couldn’t protect themselves from did not already kill them"
- Shows bias: "the first mammals were created"
- Shows bias: "emotional ability allowed for mammals to not only care for their offspring but also to live with their partner and/or herd"
- Shows bias and unsubstantiated: "last big phase of brain development."
Is this section really appropriate here at all? Perhaps instead a link to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brain_evolution, which happens to state that the model of evolution discussed here is discredited. --22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:52, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
- Gah. I've removed that section. It isn't really about neural development at all, it's a poorly written summary of MacLean's triune brain theory. Looie496 (talk) 04:32, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
