Pierre Vanderhaeghen


Dr. Pierre Vanderhaeghen is a Professor and Principal Investigator at VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research. His lab studies the mechanisms of cortical development and brain evolution. He talks about species-specific neuronal developmenthuman neuron excitability, and playing in a rock cover band!
