About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to gain insight into both the fundamental core mechanisms of neurogenesis that are conserved in different model systems and the peculiar functional traits that distinguish different neurogenic niches from each other. Both invertebrate and vertebrate organisms fall within the scope of this Topic, as well as in vitro models (e.g. NSPC and neuroectodermal organoid culture systems). Studies directly comparing neurogenic processes in different contexts are particularly encouraged, but articles focused on a specific context are also welcome as long as they include a comparative discussion of the data with reference to available literature. Although this Research Topic is mainly aimed at the field of developmental neurogenesis, studies on adult neurogenesis will also be considered as long as they are based on a comparative approach.
Areas to be covered in this Research Topic may include, but are not limited to:
• Region-specific mechanisms of NSPC regulation and neuronal differentiation.
• Stage-dependent mechanisms of NSPC regulation and neuronal differentiation.
• Similarities and differences in the mechanisms of NSPC regulation and neuronal differentiation in different model organisms.
• Similarities and differences in the mechanisms of NSPC regulation and neuronal differentiation when comparing in vitro systems with the corresponding in vivo models.
