  • Gutzman and Sive conclude that the neuroepithelium must relax, through reduction of myosin activity, for the hindbrain ventricle to reach its normal working volume.

  • The aggregates were of a uniform size and, remarkably, more than 95\% of the cells within them formed a consistent curved sheet during the first 5 days in culture, which closely resembled the neuroepithelium that forms on the outer surface of the embryo during the earlier stages of neural development.
