Network evolution paper

Stefano’s paper on the evolution of the transcription factor network in the primate prefrontal cortex has been published in GBE. While the functional output of that network seems to be conserved across the investigated primates, the network has evolved more links on the human lineage, indicating higher complexity and cooperativity between transcription factors in humans. We suggest that human specific network changes have contributed to the evolution of cognitive skills.
