Adult cortical neurogenesis: Nuanced, negligible or nonexistent?

Edmund Au, Gordon Fishell

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Can the adult neocortex in primates generate new neurons? A new study uses a clever way of determining the age of postmortem human neurons to conclude that there is very little postnatal cortical neurogenesis - or none at all.
