Timeline of Events in Human Neural Development
This simplified overview graph shows broad events of neural development classified by proliferation, migration, differentiation and metabolism.
Note the long time course of neural development and that this process continues postnatally. This long timeline means that the nervous system has one of the longest critical periods of development, and the events shown above can be affected by specific teratogens either before or during their window of development.
- 19 weeks (GA 21 weeks) - at the end of neuronal migration, radial glial cells transformation into astrocytes and astrocytic precursors. PMID: 3339373
