Abstract

Little is known about how unique features in a species can emerge along the conserved body plan beyond species. For example, mammals, including human beings, have acquired the neocortex with distinct function and morphology. Here we review current topics in comparative developmental biology of vertebrate brains, especially focusing on the cerebral neocortex as a suitable model for considering species-specific aspects.
