Abstract

Interneurons are critical components of the neocortical circuitry but the mechanisms that regulate their distribution in the neocortex are unclear. In this issue of Neuron, Harwell et al. (2015) and Mayer et al. (2015) use barcoded retroviruses to demonstrate widespread clonal dispersion of interneuron siblings in the brain.
