    Tight junction protein occludin regulates progenitor Self-Renewal and survival in developing cortex

    Raphael M Bendriem et al.
    That early cortical neural progenitor divisions strictly require OCLN isoform expression is a paradigm shift in the functional consideration of this protein best known for promoting between-cell barrier functions.

    Mouse models of human PIK3CA-related brain overgrowth have acutely treatable epilepsy

    Achira Roy et al.
    Acute one-hour treatment of Pik3ca mutant mice with a novel anti-epilepsy drug suppresses seizures despite continued developmental brain dysmorphology, promising a new therapeutic strategy for patients with intractable pediatric epilepsy.

    Foxc1 dependent mesenchymal signalling drives embryonic cerebellar growth

    Parthiv Haldipur et al.
    The mesenchyme surrounding the developing brain plays a significant role in controlling the fundamental growth and patterning of the cerebellum, and misregulation of this signalling can lead to important neurodevelopmental disorders.

    Mapping endothelial-cell diversity in cerebral cavernous malformations at single-cell resolution

    Fabrizio Orsenigo et al.
    Single-cell RNA analysis of brain endothelium identifies the angiogenic venous capillary subset and respective resident endothelial progenitors at the origin of CCM lesions, while arterial endothelial cells are unaffected.

    The tumor suppressor PTEN and the PDK1 kinase regulate formation of the columnar neural epithelium

    Joaquim Grego-Bessa et al.
    In addition to its role in regulating proliferation and cell death, the PTEN tumor suppressor regulates epithelial morphogenesis through the PDK1 kinase.

    A transient role of the ciliary gene Inpp5e in controlling direct versus indirect neurogenesis in cortical development

    Kerstin Hasenpusch-Theil et al.
    Primary-cilia-mediated processing of the Gli3 transcription factor enables the formation of subtypes of projection neurons in appropriate numbers during the development of the cerebral cortex.

    Emergence of non-canonical parvalbumin-containing interneurons in hippocampus of a murine model of type I lissencephaly

    Tyler G Ekins et al.
    An excess of novel non-canonical subtypes of parvalbumin+ interneurons in a mouse model of classical lissencephaly, which possess non-fast-spiking physiological properties, may contribute to network hyperexcitability common in this model.

    mTOR signaling regulates the morphology and migration of outer radial glia in developing human cortex

    Madeline G Andrews et al.
    mTOR signaling regulates the morphology of a human-enriched neural stem cell population and thus contributes to the radial architecture of the developing human cortex with implications for neurodevelopmental disease.

    Phenotypic outcomes in Mouse and Human Foxc1 dependent Dandy-Walker cerebellar malformation suggest shared mechanisms

    Parthiv Haldipur et al.
    Building on previous work (Haldipur et al., 2014), we show that many key mechanisms controlling cerebellar development are likely conserved between mouse and human, and validate our mouse model of Dandy-Walker malformation.

    Magnesium efflux from Drosophila Kenyon cells is critical for normal and diet-enhanced long-term memory

    Yanying Wu et al.
    Regulated neuronal magnesium efflux is a critical element of normal and magnesium-enhanced memory.
