The division, distribution and migration of the macroglial cells in the juvenile mouse brain were investigated with the radioautography. Forty mice (ICR) were randomly subdivided into two groups. The twenty mice from group 1 were weighing initially 5 to 6g, aged 10 to 12 days and were sacrificied at 2 hrs, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 15 and 20 days after a single intraperitoneal injection of $^3H$-thymichine ($4{\mu}$ Ci/g of body weight). Twenty mice from group 2 were weighing intially 2.5 to 5g, aged 3 to 8 days and were sacrificed at 2 hrs, 2, 3, 5. 7, 10, 15 and 20 days after a single($4{\mu}$ Ci/g of body weight) and/or after intraperitoneal repeated injections($2{\mu}$ Ci/g of body weight/interval) at 2, 3 and 5 days after the first injection. The brain preparations were processed for autoradiogrouphy using Kodak NTB-3 emulsion following development in Kodak D-19, fixation in Kodak fixer, and then stained with cresyl echt violet or hematoxylin counterstain. The labeling index of the ectodermal glial cells in the subependymal layers of the lateral ventricles (SLLV), corpus callosum (CC), molecular layer of the neocortex (MLN ), inner layer except the molecular layer in the neocortex (ILN) and medulla of the cerebrum (MC) were invested. 1. Labeling cells appeared from 2 hour and some of them sustained in the 20 day after injection. In the single injection group, the peak of the labeling index reached a 7.6% at 3 day, 3.6% at 7 day, 3.3% at 2 day, 5.0% at 3 day and 2.3% at 2 day from the SLLV. CC, MLN, ILN and MC, respectively. In the repeated injecton group, the peak of the labeling index reached a 32.0 at 7 day, 11.0% at 10 day, 89% at 7 day, 16.0% at 10 day and 10.8% at 15 day from the SLLV, CC, MLN, ILM and MC, respectively. 2 The glial cells of the SLLV were recognized as to be migrated into the CC and to be not or less to be into the MC and ILN but to be not into the MLN. Glial cell aggregates in the neocotex and MC were recognized as to be proliferated and then disappeared in the itself regions.
