Scientists find a critical signal that guides brain development.

Scientists at TSRI have unveiled a critical molecular signal for neocortex development, involving the nectin1/nectin3 connection on neurons vital for correct migration and brain structure organization. This pathway also has links to autism, depression, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s. The study advances understanding of neuronal migration, potentially impacting developmental brain disorder research.
