The forebrain lies at the top of the nervous system hierarchy and directs all complex behavior in vertebrates. As such, it became the evolutionary playground of the nervous system. It is at the forebrain where most divergences and novelties are clear. In the lab we try to bring light onto the developmental mechanisms that enable forebrain diversification in amniotes. Specifically, we research stem cell types, neurogenesis and neuronal migration.
