- Using brain organoids to understand Zika virus-induced microcephaly
Summary: This Spotlight article summarises the latest advances in using cerebral organoids to model Zika virus infection and the resulting pathology.
- Control of patterns of symmetric cell division in the epidermal and cortical tissues of the Arabidopsis root
Summary: Adjacent tissues have different requirements for the precise positioning of the division plane, which is mediated at the intracellular level by the preprophase band that controls the pattern of cell division.
- Thalamic afferents influence cortical progenitors via ephrin A5-EphA4 interactions
Summary: Eph/ephrin signalling between thalamic axons and cortical progenitors regulates neurogenesis the mouse cortex, providing evidence for extra-cortical control of this process.
