Embryonic regionalization of the neocortex

Published inMechanisms of Development, vol. 107, no. 1-2, p. 3-11
Publication date2001

Understanding the development of the vertebrate brain and in particular that of the neocortex, where high brain functions reside, remains one of the most difficult and exciting tasks in biology. In this review, we discuss recent experimental evidence as well as different possibilities for the intrinsic regionalization of the embryonic dorsal telencephalon, which may be related to the formation of distinct functional areas in the adult neocortex.
