Contents Notes
Neural Crest Cells and the Community of Plan for Craniofacial Development -- Neural Crest Inducing Signals -- Transcriptional Regulation at the Neural Plate Border -- Neural Crest Delamination and Migration -- Neural Crest Cell Plasticity -- The Contribution of the Neural Crest to the Vertebrate Body -- Cranial Neural Crest and Development of the Head Skeleton -- Neural Crest Contribution to the Cardiovascular System -- The Genetic Regulation of Pigment Cell Development -- Specification of Sensory Neuron Cell Fate from the Neural Crest -- Neural Crest and the Development of the Enteric Nervous System -- Growth Factors Regulating Neural Crest Cell Fate Decisions -- Neural Crest Stem Cells -- Molecular Bases of Human Neurocristopathies -- Evolution of the Neural Crest. Neural Crest Induction and Differentiation, written by an international panel of recognized leaders in the field, discusses all aspects of modern neural crest biology from its evolutionary significance, to its specification, migration, plasticity and contribution to multiple lineages of the vertebrate body, to the pathologies associated with abnormal neural crest development and function. Each chapter provides an invaluable resource for information on the most current advances in the field, with discussion of controversial issues and areas of emerging importance.
