    Biochem Soc Trans 37:1359-63. 2009
    ..The present minireview aims to bring together evidence supporting a role for NCS proteins in plasticity, focusing on emerging roles of NCS-1 and hippocalcin...
  2. pmc Synergistic interactions between kainate and mGlu receptors regulate bouton Ca signalling and mossy fibre LTP
    Robert Nistico
    MRC Centre for Synaptic Plasticity, School of Physiology and Pharmacology, University of Bristol, Bristol, BS8 1TD, United Kingdom
    Sci Rep 1:103. 2011
    ..Thus three distinct glutamate receptors interact, in both an AND and OR gate fashion, to regulate both immediate and long-term presynaptic function in the brain...

    Céline S Nicolas
    MRC Centre for Synaptic Plasticity, School of Physiology and Pharmacology, Medical Sciences Building, University Walk, Bristol BS8 1TD, UK
    Neuron 73:374-90. 2012
    ..Therefore, in addition to established roles in cytokine signaling, the JAK/STAT pathway is involved in synaptic plasticity in the brain...

    John L Sherwood
    MRC Centre for Synaptic Plasticity, School of Physiology and Pharmacology, University of Bristol, BS8 1TD, UK
    Neurochem Int 61:482-9. 2012
    ..Transverse slices have denser fibre tracts but a smaller proportion of giant mossy fibre boutons. These results further demonstrate a considerable heterogeneity in the functional properties of the mossy fibre projection...

    Zuner A Bortolotto
    MRC Centre for Synaptic Plasticity, School of Physiology and Pharmacology, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom
    Curr Protoc Neurosci . 2011

    Neuron 79:293-307. 2013
    ..Furthermore, NMDAR stimulation downregulates Arf1 activation and binding to PICK1 via the Arf-GAP GIT1. This study defines Arf1 as a critical regulator of actin dynamics and synaptic function via modulation of PICK1. ..
