Founder cells shape brain evolution.
Humans have an extraordinarily expanded and complex cerebral cortex, relative to non-human primates. Yet the mechanisms underlying cortical differences across evolution are unclear. A new study by Benito-Kwiecinski et al. employs cerebral organoids derived across great apes to implicate neuroepithelial progenitor shape transitions in human cortical expansion.
