Abstract

Human fetal cerebellar cortex was maintained up to 5 months in vitro. Important features included early migration of granule neurons followed by maturation of Purkinje and granule neurons. Unique areas of organization developed in which a rim of leptomeningeal cells surrounded an explant and its outgrowth zone; these areas subsequently grew as well-defined units.
