We aim to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying human cerebral cortical development. Occupying 82% of brain volume, the cerebral cortex is the largest part of the human brain with a highly gyrified surface and multiple functional areas. It mediates cognitive functions pronounced in humans, such as language and abstract thinking. Thus, the mechanism by which the cortex develops to form the structural basis for cognitive functions is an important problem in biology.
