Focus on neurogenesis

Neural development begins in the embryo, with the differentiation of neural progenitors and their subsequent assembly into functional circuits – processes that, in many species, continue beyond birth and that can, in some circumstances, be reactivated to drive repair following injury. Recent technological advances, such as the advent of brain organoids, are improving our understanding of how the nervous system forms in humans. There is also a growing link between processes that occur during neural development and the risk of neurodegenerative disorders. From an evolutionary perspective, interspecies differences in neural development can drive functional innovations, such as the increased processing power of the primate neocortex.

This collection of review-type and research articles, focussed particularly on neurogenesis, has been curated to complement the 2024 Fusion Neurogenesis Conference in Cancun, Mexico – at which our Reviews Editor Laura Hankins will be present. We hope you find the collection interesting, and we welcome your own submissions for consideration by our expert Academic Editors from the field, including François Guillemot, Debra Silver and Steve Wilson.
