The cerebral cortex is perhaps the crowning achievement of evolution. The cerebral cortex provides the biological substrate for human cognitive capacity and is, arguably, the region of the brain that distinguishes us from other species. Considering that the massive expansion of cortical surface observed in primates originates during development, understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating cell number and diversity, migration and circuit assembly is critical to shed light into this process.
In this Brain Conference, world experts will describe how advances in developmental neurobiology, stem cell biology and genetics are offering new insights into the mechanisms controlling the development of the cerebral cortex across vertebrates, as well as the evolutionary mechanisms culminating in the human cortex.
