Pletikos et al. (2014) demonstrate in this issue of Neuron that the human neocortex has an "hourglass" temporal gene expression pattern with robust and dynamic transcriptome differences during the prenatal and adolescent/adult periods. Similar changes are not observed in the nonhuman primate-is this what makes us human?
