Method Primary source abstract: "The spatio-temporal proliferation pattern of postembryonic neuroblasts in the central brain region of the supra-esophageal ganglion of Drosophila melanogaster was studied by labeling DNA replicating cells with 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine (BrdU)."
Comments P.4304 left column 3rd paragraph: "Although central brain and VNC NBs cease dividing ~20-30 hours after pupa formation (APF), mushroom body NBs terminate division 85-90 hours APF (primary source)." Primary source abstract: "Most neuroblasts cease dividing 20-30 hr after puparium formation (APF), while only four in the postero-dorsal region continue making progenies until 85-90 hr APF."
