實驗室介紹

大家好!歡迎來到我們實驗室。我們的目標是揭開建立高度認知的人類大腦新皮層的神秘面紗,希望可以藉此理解和進一步幫助開發人類神經系統疾病的藥物的基石。

實驗室研究方向

大約在三個世紀以前,Thomas Willis提出腦是使得人類具有高度認知的來源,而目前已經知道這個認知主要是由大腦新皮層所掌控。為了精準、有效率地處理來自大腦以外的大量信息,新皮層可以被分為多個功能區域,這些區域也稱為Brodmann’s區域(1909)。每個區域都具有其不可取代、獨特的功能,例如用於接收信息的第一體感覺區,或是相鄰的將指令傳出大腦驅使自主運動的第一運動區域。透過不同區域中皮層神經元的溝通連結,幫助我們處理外來訊息、驅使自主運動與認知形成。這獨特的特性在另一個角度也解釋了神經性疾病通常不會造成個體的直接死亡,相反地,神經性疾病會造成生活品質的顯著降低。然而,由於目前對大腦新皮層的了解非常有限,這不足的知識阻礙了針對神經性疾病有效治療與藥物的開發。

為了揭開人類新皮層發育的神秘面紗,以拓展我們對神經系統疾病的理解以進而幫助治療與開發藥物,我們實驗室專注於兩個方向:

  • 通過演化觀點揭示人類皮層發育的機轉
  • 利用體外培育3D大腦類胚體,模擬神經系統疾病
