Brain, know thy transcriptome, know thyself

Neuron. 2012 Aug 23;75(4):543-5. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2012.08.005.


In this issue of Neuron, Konopka et al. (2012) describe their comparison of transcriptomes from frontal pole, caudate nucleus, and hippocampus of multiple adult humans, chimpanzees, and rhesus monkeys. The data provide an initial opportunity for linking genomic and brain differences among these primate species.
