MicroRNA-186-5p controls GluA2 surface expression and synaptic scaling in hippocampal neurons (PNAS published ahead of print) Homeostatic mechanisms maintain stable neuronal and circuit function in the brain, in particular during development and learning, when synapses undergo constant changes. Synaptic scaling is a form of homeostatic synaptic plasticity responsible for maintaining neuronal network activity within a … Read morePNAS February, 2019
