    • Astrocytes refine cortical connectivity at dendritic spines. 

      Risher, W Christopher; Patel, Sagar; Kim, Il Hwan; Uezu, Akiyoshi; Bhagat, Srishti; Wilton, Daniel K; Pilaz, Louis-Jan; ... (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 ...
    • Regulation of spine structural plasticity by Arc/Arg3.1. 

      Newpher, Thomas M; Harris, Scott; Pringle, Jasmine; Hamilton, Colleen; Soderling, Scott (Seminars in cell & developmental biology, 2018-05)
      Dendritic spines are actin-rich, postsynaptic protrusions that contact presynaptic terminals to form excitatory chemical synapses. These synaptic contacts are widely believed to be the sites of memory formation and information ...
