This study aimed to provide insight into early radiation-induced brain anomalies that might be related to previously observed cognitive and behavioural malfunctions in mice prenatally irradiated with moderate to high doses of X-radiation. More specifically, a disturbance of developental processes was investigated by means of immunohistochemical techniques in prenatally irradiated mouse embryos at the onset of neurogenesis (embryonic days 11 and 15).
