Chapter 3 of the book "The Cerebral Cortex of the Rat" edited by Bryan Kolb
and Richard Tess (1990 MIT Press)is a good review of rat cerebral cortex
development with lots of references listed at the end. The chapter is
entitled "The Prenatal and Postnatal Development of the Rat Cerebral Cortex"
by Harry Uylings, et al.
