Primate-specific miR-934 mediates neurogenesis and downstream neuronal differentiation processes, modulating the expression of genes associated with the subplate, a region most prominent in primates, emerging during early cortical development.
Multiphoton live-imaging illuminates the dynamic underpinnings of how different types of progenitor cells migrate and interact to robustly build the mammalian Dentate Gyrus neural circuitry and new outer neurogenic niche.
mTOR signaling regulates the morphology of a human-enriched neural stem cell population and thus contributes to the radial architecture of the developing human cortex with implications for neurodevelopmental disease.
Transcription factor Sox9 has an important role in neocortex expansion, where its expression in basal progenitors increases proliferation, induces premature gliogenesis and promotes the expression of extracellular matrix components.
The specification of a very small number of progenitor cells with competence to adapt their neurogenic output to different probabilistic rules underlies the generation of distinct cortical cytoarchitectures.
A molecular atlas of the chick retina provides a comprehensive classification and characterization of 136 cell types, yielding novel insights into retinal structure, function, development, and evolution.
