My research focus is on the cerebral cortical development. It seeks to decipher how cerebral cortical neural cell fates are determined (with special attention in the earliest generated cells in the subplate and in the large pyramidal cells of layer 5), and how development of cortical functional specialisation (arealization) is determined by genetic and environmental factors. The arealization of the mammalian cortex is controlled by a combination of intrinsic factors that are expressed within or near the cortex, and external signals, some of which are mediated through thalamic input. Members of my research group study the generation of cortical neurons and development of the cortical connectivity in this context.
St John's College, Oxford
I work in the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics where I am the Professor of Developmental Neuroscience. My departmental teaching contributes to the pre-clinical training of medical students. I give lectures and seminars in the 1st BM course mainly in the field of Neurosciences; on the anatomy and development of the human central nervous system. I organize the Neuroanatomy practical classes for 2nd year medical students and contribute with more specialized lectures and seminars for the FHS (3rd year medical students) and M.Sc. Degree in Neuroscience Course. I also teach on the Principles of Clinical Anatomy Course for 3rd year medics. My college tutorial teaching includes most aspects of the human gross anatomy, histology, endocrinology and embryology.
