Neural Migration depicts a period of brain development wherein radial glia (black cells) divide continuously to create new neurons (white cells). These new neurons climb the black dendritic stalks of their parent cells, eventually finding their final resting places within the layers of cerebral cortex. This process creates billions of new neurons and occurs over the period of only a few weeks during gestation.
