description:
Postnatal brain neurogenesis in mammals is believed to be restricted to rare germinative remnants of the neuroepithelium. In this study, we discovered that, in the postnatal brain, a subset of embryonically derived progenitors is present in meningeal substructures. These cells migrate from the meningeal substructures to the retrosplenial and visual motor cortex and differentiate into (electrically) functional integrated neurons. Lineage tracing analysis revealed that this subset of neural progenitors originate largely from PDGFRß+ cells. PDGFRß-derived cells differentiate mostly into Satb2+ neurons in cortical layers I-IV. Thus, a reservoir of embryonically derived progenitors in the meninges contributes to postnatal cerebral cortical neurogenesis.
