Neurons in Human brain have their own clones!

‘To understand a typical language, one of the same kind should be present’. A team from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, has analyzed the process of different types of neurons establish cortical connections during embryonic development and early postnatal life in cerebral cortex. The result of the study shows that neurons are anatomically different ones but their genetic programs remain very similar. For cerebral cortex to perform well, the neurons have to indulge in effective communication with each other. During this process, the signals send by a neuron shall be decoded with a similar neuron with same structure of genes. Not all neurons but of the same kind interacts!
