Inhibitory interneurons of the human prefrontal cortex display conserved evolution of the phenotype and related genes.

Abstract

Inhibitory interneurons participate in local processing circuits, playing a central role in executive cognitive functions of the prefrontal cortex. Although humans differ from other primates in a number of cognitive domains, it is not currently known whether the interneuron system has changed in the course of primate evolution leading to our species.
