Gordon J. Fishell, Ph.D.

The telencephalon both houses the highest level of neural processing and is the most phylogentically divergent structure in the CNS. In adult mammals, the dorsal pallial telencephalon gives rise to the laminar, cortical regions of brain, whereas the ventral aspect develops into the nuclear components of the basal ganglia. The Fishell lab investigates how these regional differences arise.
