Summary:The cerebral neocortex, a structure unique to the mammalian brain and prerequisite for higher cognitive functions, has since decades attracted the curiosity of neurobiologists and developmental biologists alike. This volume gives a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of early cortical development. It provides concise information on the birth, specification, migration and terminal differentiation of neocortical cells. Both the cellular and molecular events leading to the establishment of a functional neocortex are presented in considerable detail, and possible implications for neurodegenerative diseases are discussed
