Our laboratory is interested in the development and evolution of the cerebral cortex, from stem cells to neuronal networks, from mouse to man. We focus on the mechanisms of specification of neuronal identity and connectivity, using mouse genetics, human and mouse comparative embryology, and models of neural differentiation from mouse and human pluripotent stem cells.
Keywords: Cerebral cortex / pluripotent stem cells / neuronal differentiation / neural circuits / brain evolution
