Cortical and striatal interneurons are both generated within the ventral telencephalon, but their migratory journey takes them to very different destinations. Two articles in this issue (van den Berge et al., 2013; McKinsey et al., 2013) add an important molecular component to our understanding of how, during development, interneurons reach the cerebral cortex.

Dr. Arlotta is interested in understanding the molecular laws that govern the birth, differentiation and assembly of the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain that controls how we sense, move and think. She integrates developmental and evolutionary knowledge to investigate therapies for brain repair and for modeling neuropsychiatric disease.
