Hi, we have recently started to work on corpus callosum formation in the 
developing mamalian forebrain. First  we performed a  pilot study to see the 
callosol axon projections on E 14  and E 17 mouse  foetus brain regarding 
the reference studies. We  could see the callosal axons on the coronal 
sections as shown in the references  . But  we decided to run the study with 
rat foetuses instead of mice because of the lack of the  facilities. However 
we could not find any spesific timing information in the  literature about 
CC formation in rats . We wonder when CC  spesificly begins and ends to form 
during the rat gestation and also where  we suppose to see the growing 
callosal axons on E 14, 15 and 17 on the coronal histological sections in 

I would greatly appreciate if you could inform me about these issues .

Thank you in advance for any information you can suggest me.

Yours Sincerely
