About this Discussion Page
The project discussion page is where your group members can post discussion on the project topic. This will be demonstrated in the practical tutorial in week 3.
Please follow these 3 simple rules:
- Never identify yourself or any other students by name, use only your student number.
- Only edit your own student page or your own group project page.
- Only add content that is both correctly cited and you have permission to reuse.

Development from neural crest
Areas found: eyes ears heart central nervous system meninges
Problems: Hearing Melanoma vision
development time course
glossary - useful when you have lots of acronyms. Be brief and clear ref. list - generates itself as long as you ref. properly
needs to be explained to another uni student that doesn’t know anything about neural crest and its differentiation.
Key things to understand on what makes a good project page: -Content -Brevity and balance between text and images - it’s an online resource, not a textbook. BALANCE CONTENT. -can have numbered lists and bullet points but don’t turn whole project into this.
If you can’t publish an image directly, you can redraw it and credit it to the article.
- differentiation ho they get to different parts of the body where the local singals come from etc pigmentation and vitamin D
Assessment - Peer Review
History of research is short, notes a few important researchers, lacks when melanocytes were connected to neural crest derivatives. It also lacks the knowledge of the role melanocytes play in human physiology and how that has changed, connection to Vitamin D synthesis and the history of the role melanocytes play in pathology could also be added.
Tissue Organ Structure and Function - Skin is completely missing, no images or text to be seen. Ear is well explained both in writing and images, understanding of chemical mediation in the adult has been elucidated, no reference to physiological role of the ear and how it achieves it, it would not have to be long. Figure 2 refers to Wv/Wv mutant, what is a Wv/Wv mutant? There is no explanation of this mutant model, whether it is in humans or animals, or why it is important etc. Eyes section notes the combined role of neural-crest derived cells and neuroepithelium of optic cup, explains the layers of the eye nicely within the associated image of Figure 4, which has been correctly formatted and cited. The heart section simply shows an image of a cardiac melanocyte, there should be more here. The CNS topic is short, but it does note the understanding of a role of melanocytes in CNS, but nothing more about how neural crest cells help with giving melanocytes to the CNS, the image is a nice overview of the skull and layers of the scalp.
Embryonic origins, Developmental time course and Molecular Mechanisms / Factors / Genes are all blank, with no images to be seen.
Reference to a mouse model can be seen in the Animal models section, are there other models in other species of mouse mutant that can observe melanocyte embryology? Mention of the melanoma model of genetically-engineered mice is good, but how does it relate to neural crest abnormality?
Current Research explains 2 new systems to observe melanocytes, this section could show findings and how they're important - could be longer. Abnormalities listed are short, some missing entirely, more focus on which are more common could be longer. Abnormalities listed are short, some missing entirely, more focus on which are more common could be noted due to the vast nature of melanocytes. Glossary is nice but incomplete, and there are a sufficient number of references.
