Our lab studies embryonic brain development. We are fascinated by the following questions:
- How are cell fates specified in the developing brain?
- Which genetic changes gave rise to human specific brain traits?
- What is the embryonic etiology for neurodevelopmental disorders?
We tackle these complex questions using multidisciplinary approaches which include imaging of live brain slices and neural progenitors, genetics, and functional genomics. Click on these links to learn more: tools, cell fate, evolution.
