    ..This work identifies Shv as a key modulator of activity-induced structural remodeling and suggests that neurons use distinct molecular cues to differentially modulate synaptic growth and remodeling to meet synaptic demand. ..

    ..These results suggest that chronic Nebula/DSCR1 upregulation may contribute to age-dependent memory loss in DS and AD and points to correcting calcineurin signaling as a means to improve memory during aging. ..
