Brain: Protein That Regulates Key "Fate" Decision in Cortical Progenitor Cells Identified, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Study

Published: Sep 24, 2012

Researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) have solved an important piece of one of neuroscience's outstanding puzzles: how progenitor cells in the developing mammalian brain reproduce themselves while also giving birth to neurons that will populate the emerging cerebral cortex, the seat of cognition and executive function in the mature brain.
