Name: telencephalon
Definition: The anterior and dorsal forebrain neuromere. In ray-finned fishes and most pronounced in teleosts the roof plate of the embryonic telencephalon extends laterally with the effect that the paired alar plates forming the hemispheric walls roll out lateroventrally in a process called eversion. This is unlike the development in other vertebrate groups. From Neuroanatomy of the Zebrafish Brain.
