An interneuron’s birth date may determine its molecular and physiological phenotype.
The enormous diversity of cortical interneuron subtypes presents a challenge for our understanding of their functional roles. A study by Fishell and colleagues examines the origins of interneuron diversity during development, highlighting the importance of an interneuron’s birth order in establishing its physiological properties…
