Identification of genes that underlie the development of asymmetry in this tiny region of the zebrafish brain may help direct the search for the origins of asymmetry in the human brain. Disorders including autism, dyslexia, and schizophrenia have been linked to improper lateralization of the brain, so understanding the biological basis of brain asymmetry may also provide insights into such disorders.
