Constructing the cerebral cortex: Neurogenesis and fate determination

  title={Constructing the cerebral cortex: Neurogenesis and fate determination},
  author={Susan K. McConnell},
Sitting at the apex of neural processing in the mammalian brain is the cerebral cortex, the convoluted sheet of neurons covering the two cerebral hemispheres. Neurons within the neocortex underlie our most sophisticated cognitive and perceptual abilities and are thus highly specialized for the analysis of sensory inputs or the generation of motor outputs. The position, connectivity, and morphology of each neuron reflect its particular function. Although neurons in the adult brain are organized… CONTINUE READING
