Mechanisms of Cortical Development

David Price and David Willshaw


This is the first book that attempts to bring together what is known about the fundamental mechanisms that underlie the development of the cerebral cortex in mammals. Ranging from the emergence of the forebrain from the neural plate, to the functioning adult form, the book draws on evidence from several species to provide a detailed description of processes at each stage. Where appropriate, evidence is extrapolated from non-mammalian species to generate hypotheses about mammalian development. In contrast to other texts of developmental biology, this book integrates information on regulatory pr ... More

Keywords: cerebral cortex, forebrain, cellular development, regulatory processes, structural morphology, transgenics, formal modelling, developmental neurobiology, mammals
