    Low FoxO expression in Drosophila somatosensory neurons protects dendrite growth under nutrient restriction

    Amy R Poe et al.
    The development of Drosophila somatosensory neurons is spared under nutrient deficiency so that they grow more dendrites and make animals more sensitive to environmental stimuli.

    Dendritic mitochondria reach stable positions during circuit development

    Michelle C Faits et al.
    Mitochondria reach stable positions in dendrites during a critical developmental period of high motility.

    Specific depletion of the motor protein KIF5B leads to deficits in dendritic transport, synaptic plasticity and memory

    Junjun Zhao et al.
    Two homologous kinesin motors, KIF5A and KIF5B, have distinct functions in dendritic spine morphogenesis, and KIF5B plays a role in synaptic plasticity and memory.

    MicroRNA-9 controls dendritic development by targeting REST

    Sebastian A Giusti et al.
    Conditional transgenic miR-9 sponge mice exhibit developmental defects in dendrite growth due to up-regulation of the transcriptional repressor REST.

    The unfolded protein response is required for dendrite morphogenesis

    Xing Wei et al.
    The unfolded protein response regulates neuronal dendrite morphogenesis by controlling the folding of a transmembrane leucine-rich repeat (LRR) protein.

    Electrical and Ca2+ signaling in dendritic spines of substantia nigra dopaminergic neurons

    Travis A Hage et al.
    Dopaminergic cells uniquely receive input from a roughly equal mixture of synapses on dendritic spines and synapses formed directly on dendrites.

    Dendritic Na+ spikes enable cortical input to drive action potential output from hippocampal CA2 pyramidal neurons

    Qian Sun et al.
    In the hippocampus, dendritic Na + spikes are required for signals from the entorhinal cortex to drive action potentials in CA2-but not CA1 or CA3-pyramidal neurons.

    Data-driven reduction of dendritic morphologies with preserved dendro-somatic responses

    Willem AM Wybo et al.
    A flexible and accurate methodology to fit reduced compartmental models to dendritic morphologies shows that models with very few compartments can capture many dendritic computations.

    Ordered arrangement of dendrites within a C. elegans sensory nerve bundle

    Zhiqi Candice Yip, Maxwell G Heiman
    A nerve bundle is not simply a cable of wires, but has order within it.

    Subcellular sequencing of single neurons reveals the dendritic transcriptome of GABAergic interneurons

    Julio D Perez et al.
    Single somata and dendrites of individual rat neurons were laser-captured and sequenced to discover and compare the subcellular transcriptomes, identifying over 4000 mRNAs in GABAergic dendrites.
