Nervous System: The entire nerve apparatus, composed of a central part, the brain and spinal cord, and a peripheral part, the cranial and spinal nerves, autonomic ganglia, and plexuses. (Stedman, 26th ed)

Explant Culture of Neural Tissue

JoVE 5209

The intricate structure of the vertebrate nervous system arises from a complex series of events involving cell differentiation, cell migration, and changes in cell morphology. Studying these processes is essential to our understanding of nervous system function as well as our ability to diagnose and treat disorders that result from abnormal development. However, neural tissues are relatively inaccessible for experimental manipulations, especially in embryonic mammals. As a result, many scientists take advantage of explant culture in order to study neurodevelopmental processes in an “organotypic” environment, meaning that the tissue is removed from the organism but its complex cellular architecture is maintained. Generally, explant cultures are created by careful dissection of neural tissue that is then submerged in carefully designed growth media and cultured in vitro. This video will first provide a brief overview of neural explant culture, including its advantages over other in vitro methods and important considerations for maintaining healthy tissue. Next, a general protocol will be provided for setting up an explant culture from embryonic mouse brain, outlining the isolation of embryos from the mother and dissection of the brain. The presentation also includes an overview of slice culture
