Differing division rates of brain stem cells

Our similarities and differences to chimpanzees, our great ape cousins, have intrigued people for centuries. Of particular interest is the brain. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig now report the first detailed comparison of how human and chimpanzee stem cells form a cerebral cortex during brain development.
