How Brain Cells 'Remember' their Birth Order
http://www.hhmi.org/news/doe.html

HHMI researchers have discovered how brain cells remember the order in which
they are born from precursor stem cells. This type of molecular memory
appears to determine the specific cell type the newly born cells will become
and influences where in the developing brain those cells will reside
permanently.

The researchers speculate that a better understanding of this molecular code
may aid scientists who are trying to reset the developmental program of
neural cells and researching neural diseases, such as Parkinson's.

Research published in the August 24, 2001, issue of the journal Cell.
