Our key questions

  • What are the cellular and molecular mechanisms shaping the central nervous system (CNS)?

  • How, and when, is cellular diversity defined and how is it tweaked by evolution?

  • What are the evolutionary dynamics controlling changes during CNS development?

  • How early in development are species-specific attributes defined? Are these developments irreversible?
