Abstract: Although the human brain is about three times as large as those of our closest living relatives, the nonhuman African great apes, increased size and neural cell counts alone fail to explain its characteristic functionalities. The brain has also undergone microstructural, connectional, and molecular changes in the human lineage, changes likely me-diated by divergent spatiotemporal gene expression. Our integrative analysis of tissue and single-cell transcriptomic data revealed diverse molecular and cellular features of the phylogenetic reorganization of the human brain across multiple levels, with relevance for brain function and disease.

研究方向

大脑发育涉及复杂的过程,需要在时序上精确的基因调控。本实验室运用生物信息学的方法,通过整合分析‘omics’数据,研究人脑在发育、进化,以及相关疾病中的分子和细胞机制。
