Insights about the role of the eminentia thalami

Vassiliki Fotaki and her team explored the function of an embryonic forebrain structure, the eminentia thalami (EmT), for the first time.  Here, Vassiliki explains that the EmT has the ability to induce the fate of surrounding cells. These findings support the role of the EmT as a signalling centre in the developing brain.
