The layers and cells of the early developing central nervous system lack direct counterparts in the adult and must be designated by a special terminology. The inconsistent and inaccurate language now in use leads to misunderstanding and a revision is proposed in which the four fundamental zones are termed the ventricular, subventricular, intermediate, and marginal zones. Each is defined according to the form, behavior, and fate of its constituent cells. All neurons and macroglia of the central nervous system can be derived from these developmental zones.
