  1. pmc Postsynaptic density scaffold SAP102 regulates cortical synapse development through EphB and PAK signaling pathway
    Yasunobu Murata
    McGovern Institute for Brain Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, USA
    J Neurosci 33:5040-52. 2013
    ..Both SAP102 and PAKs are associated with X-linked mental retardation in humans; thus, synapse formation mediated by EphB/SAP102/PAK signaling in the early postnatal brain may be crucial for cognitive development...
  2. pmc Eye opening and PSD95 are required for long-term potentiation in developing superior colliculus
    Jian Ping Zhao
    McGovern Institute for Brain Research and Department of Brain and Cognitive Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 110:707-12. 2013
    ..These data indicate that young SC LTP arises from PSD95 unsilencing of silent synapses, that unsilencing is labile in young brain, and that even though SAP102 and PSD95 can bind the same NMDARs, only PSD95 enables SC synaptic maturation...
  3. pmc TrkB and protein kinase Mζ regulate synaptic localization of PSD-95 in developing cortex
    Akira Yoshii
    Departmens of Brain and Cognitive Science, McGovern Institute for Brain Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, USA
    J Neurosci 31:11894-904. 2011
    ..These results also indicate that palmitoylation can be regulated by a trophic factor. Our findings have implications for neurodevelopmental disorders as well as aging brains...

    Andrew D Bolton
    McGovern Institute for Brain Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA Electronic address
    Cell Rep 13:1003-15. 2015
    ..We surmise that A13 mimics dopaminergic effects that we observed in SC slices, which suggests that dopamine in the SC may reduce the tendency of an animal to orient or attend to salient stimuli...

    ..Together these two reagents enable two-color activation of neural spiking and downstream synaptic transmission in independent neural populations without detectable cross-talk in mouse brain slice. ..
