    What is the difference between neural crest cells and neuroepithelial cells? I have got very confused as I read about the development of mouse nervous system

    I couldn't remember very much on this subject, but I believe it is just a matter of confusion over nomenclature, the neural crest cells become neuroepithelial cells. I dug up a text book, Developmental Biology by Gilbert, it's only 3 years old and it didn't mention neuroepithelial cells at all so I wish I could help you more. Embryologist probably make a distinction to clarify a period of development from another. Although, I'm not an expert, isn't Spurious a developmental biologist? He's probably the one to ask.
