Brain development and evolution

The group is using an evolutionary developmental neurobiology approach to try to solve the amygdalar ridd. We have shown that the amygdala has a mosaic-like organization and that each anatomical subdivision of the amygdala contains different neuron subtypes that originate in distinct progenitor domains. Based on this knowledge, we are carrying out research to bridge the gap between the embryonic origin and the mature phenotype of neurons, as a way to decipher the functional organization of the neural networks regulating emotions and sociality.
