Transcriptional Control of Neural Crest Development
by Brian L. Nelms, Patricia A. Labosky
Publisher: Morgan & Claypool Life Sciences 2010
Number of pages: 240
The neural crest is a remarkable embryonic population of cells found only in vertebrates and has the potential to give rise to many different cell types contributing throughout the body. These derivatives range from the mesenchymal bone and cartilage comprising the facial skeleton, to neuronal derivatives of the peripheral sensory and autonomic nervous systems, to melanocytes throughout the body, and to smooth muscle of the great arteries of the heart.

This review will discuss the cellular components of the nervous system first and then will consider the peripheral nervous system before discussing the Central nervous system. In the CNS we will consider the sensory systems and then motor systems.

Synaesthesia is a condition in which a stimulus elicits an additional subjective experience. The aim of this book on synaesthesia is to provide novel insights into the development of synaesthesia both in its genuine and acquired form.

Cyclic nucleotides control a number of neuronal properties including neuronal differentiation, pathfinding, regulation of excitability and synaptic transmission, and control of gene expression. Signaling events mediated by cAMP or cGMP are transient.
