BACKGROUND: Cell proliferation plays an important morphogenetic role. This work analyzes the temporal-spatial organization of cell proliferation as an attempt to understand its contribution to the chick optic tectum (OT) morphogenesis. RESULTS: A morphogenetic model based on space-dependent differences in cell proliferation is presented. Step1: a medial Zone of High Mitotic Density (mZHMD) appears at the caudal zone.Step2: the mZHMD expands cephalically forming the dorsal curvature and then duplicates into two bilateral ZHMDs (bZHMD).Step3: the bZHMDs move toward the central region of each hemitectum.Step4: the planar expansion of both bZHMD and a relative decrement in the dorsal midline growth produces a dorsal medial groove separating the tectal hemispheres.Step5: a relative caudal displacement of the bZHMDs produces the OT caudal curvature. Numerical sequences derived from records of mitotic cells spatial co-ordinates, analyzed as stochastic point processes, show that they correspond to 1/f((β)) processes. The spatial organization subsumes deterministic and stochastic components. CONCLUSIONS: The deterministic component describes the presence of a long-range influence that installs an asymmetric distribution of cell proliferation. i.e, an asymmetrically located ZHMD that print space-dependent differences onto the tectal corticogenesis. The stochastic component reveals short-range anti-correlations reflecting spatial clusterization and synchronization between neighboring cells.
