In embryology, an organizer is a group of cells that acts upon surrounding cells and tissues forcing them to adopt particular fates. In the developing brain, one such organizer is found at the boundary of midbrain and hindbrain, also known as isthmic region, and is called isthmic organizer. Morphogenetic molecule Fgf8 is produced by the isthmic organizer and transforms fates of the neighboring neuroepithelium into tectum arising from midbrain and cerebellum arising from hindbrain.
