    Ultrastructural comparison of dendritic spine morphology preserved with cryo and chemical fixation

    Hiromi Tamada et al.
    Cryo preservation of brain tissue reveals dendritic spines with thinner necks compared to those prepared with chemical fixation.

    A large fraction of neocortical myelin ensheathes axons of local inhibitory neurons

    Kristina D Micheva et al.
    Parvalbumin-positive inhibitory neurons in the cortex have insulating myelin sheathes, despite forming only short-range connections.

    Human and nonhuman primate meninges harbor lymphatic vessels that can be visualized noninvasively by MRI

    Martina Absinta et al.
    Meningeal lymphatic vessels are present in human and nonhuman primates (common marmoset monkeys) and they can be noninvasively imaged and mapped in vivo with high-resolution, clinical MRI.

    The amyloid precursor protein is a conserved Wnt receptor

    Tengyuan Liu et al.
    The amyloid precursor protein known for its role in causing familial Alzheimer's disease directly interacts with secreted proteins, called Wnts, known for their key roles in brain development and homeostasis, suggesting the two processes may be directly linked.

    Islet vascularization is regulated by primary endothelial cilia via VEGF-A-dependent signaling

    Yan Xiong et al.
    Primary cilia on endothelial cells are required for VEGF-A/ VEGFR2-dependent signaling, islet vascularization and, consequently, nutrient delivery and insulin disposal.

    16p11.2 microdeletion imparts transcriptional alterations in human iPSC-derived models of early neural development

    Julien G Roth et al.
    A model of in vitro human corticogenesis identifies alterations in gene expression caused by loss of 16p11.2 CNV genes in hiPSC-derived progenitor cells.

    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.

    Asymmetric neurogenic commitment of retinal progenitors involves Notch through the endocytic pathway

    Elisa Nerli et al.
    A quantitative live imaging approach unveils that earliest neurogenic progenitors in the vertebrate retina arise from asymmetric divisions and that this asymmetry involves Notch signalling through the endocytic pathway.

    Polo-like kinase acts as a molecular timer that safeguards the asymmetric fate of spindle microtubule-organizing centers

    Laura Matellán et al.
    Molecular and cell biology analyses reveal novel roles of Polo-like kinases in establishing non-random segregation patterns of spindle-associated microtubule-organizing centers during mitosis, a phenomenon linked with replicative cell aging.
