Birth dating cortical astrocytes to unveil their distribution patterns in development
Updated: Jul 16, 2021
One-minute thesis: Understanding how astrocytes occupy their appropriate cortical layers is important to further our grasp of neurodevelopmental diseases. We asked whether astrocytes occupy upper or lower cortical layers based on their date of birth.
In this video Ines shows, through perinatal birth dating, a novel cortical astrocyte distribution pattern that lays the foundations for further studies on the timed production of diverse cortical astrocyte populations.
