    • Astrocytes refine cortical connectivity at dendritic spines. 

      Bhagat, S; Calakos, Nicole; Calhan, OY; Eroglu, C; Kim, IH; Patel, S; Pilaz, LJ; ... (14 authors) (Elife, 2014-12-17)
      During cortical synaptic development, thalamic axons must establish synaptic connections despite the presence of the more abundant intracortical projections. How thalamocortical synapses are formed and maintained in this ...
    • Human-chimpanzee differences in a FZD8 enhancer alter cell-cycle dynamics in the developing neocortex. 

      Bepler, T; Boyd, J Lomax; Gordân, R; Pilaz, LJ; Rouanet, JP; Silver, Debra Lynn; Skove, SL; ... (8 authors) (Curr Biol, 2015-03-16)
      The human neocortex differs from that of other great apes in several notable regards, including altered cell cycle, prolonged corticogenesis, and increased size [1-5]. Although these evolutionary changes most likely contributed ...
