Cortical development: the art of generating cell diversity


Götz, Magdalena; Sommer, Lukas (2005). Cortical development: the art of generating cell diversity. Development, 132(15):3327-3332.

Abstract

The fascinating question of how the enormous diversity of neuronal and glial cells in the cerebral cortex is generated during development was recently discussed at a meeting on cortical development and stem cells in Greece. What emerged from this meeting is an equally fascinating answer, namely that precursor diversity at rather early stages of development anticipates later cell type diversity.
