- A central role for the small GTPase Rac1 in hippocampal plasticity and spatial learning and memoryUrsula Haditsch
Department of Neurosurgery, Stanford School of Medicine, 1201 Welch Rd, MSLS P304, Stanford, California 94305, USA
Mol Cell Neurosci 41:409-19. 2009..Furthermore, Rac1 mutants display deficits in working/episodic-like memory in the delayed matching-to-place (DMP) task suggesting that Rac1 is a central regulator of rapid encoding of novel spatial information in vivo...

Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
Brain Behav Immun 29:28-38. 2013..These data may highlight novel mechanisms behind chronic inflammatory and neuroinflammatory episodes that are known to compromise hippocampus-dependent forms of learning and memory...

Stanford University, Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, Stanford, CA, USA
Brain Behav Immun 30:33-44. 2013..This identifies CCL2 signaling as a potential clinical target for moderating the long-term defects in neural stem cell function following cranial radiation in children...
