Description

Sive and her colleagues have identified more than 50 genes that participate in the embryo’s earliest decision to begin making neural tissue. One of the areas of the brain studied by the Sive lab is the hindbrain. The hindbrain forms crucial parts of the brain, including the cerebellum and medulla, as well as all the nerves that extend from the brain to the head.
