    Repression by PRDM13 is critical for generating precision in neuronal identity

    Bishakha Mona et al.
    PRDM13, a transcriptional repressor, antagonizes activity of basic-helix-loop-helix transcriptional activators and protects the developing spinal cord from aberrant expression of ventral-restricted cell-type regulators to generate the correct composition of neurons in the dorsal spinal cord.

    Functional limb muscle innervation prior to cholinergic transmitter specification during early metamorphosis in Xenopus

    Francois M Lambert et al.
    Molecular labeling, electrophysiology and calcium imaging have revealed a novel switching of neurotransmitter at the frog neuromuscular junction where motoneurons transiently release glutamate before acetylcholine at synapses on developing hindlimb muscles at the onset of metamorphosis.

    Ubiquitylation-independent activation of Notch signalling by Delta

    Nicole Berndt et al.
    Analysis of a variant without lysine in the intracellular domain reveals a ubiquitylation-independent signalling activity of the DSL ligand Delta and novel functions of the Neuralized and Mindbomb1 E3-ligases during Notch signalling.

    Sequential perturbations to mouse corticogenesis following in utero maternal immune activation

    Cesar P Canales et al.
    Mid-gestational exposure to maternal immune activation drives a sequence of transcriptional signatures and developmental pathology in embryonic mouse cortex, culminating in altered lamination and cellular lineage specification.

    Presynaptic developmental plasticity allows robust sparse wiring of the Drosophila mushroom body

    Najia A Elkahlah et al.
    Sensory innervation density in the insect associative learning center is set by postsynaptic cells and accomplished by flexible allocation of processes by presynaptic cells.

    Steroid hormone induction of temporal gene expression in Drosophila brain neuroblasts generates neuronal and glial diversity

    Mubarak Hussain Syed et al.
    A steroid hormone acts directly on brain neural progenitors to coordinately alter gene expression and specify neuronal and glial cell types.

    Genetic transformation of structural and functional circuitry rewires the Drosophila brain

    Sonia Sen et al.
    Large-scale changes in the brain's functional circuitry can be brought about by simple changes in gene expression in neural stem cells during development.

    Cell-to-cell heterogeneity in Sox2 and Bra expression guides progenitor motility and destiny

    Michèle Romanos et al.
    Spatial variations of transcription factor expression regulate the choice of progenitors to stay in their niche or to migrate into neural and mesodermal tissues.

    Neuroblast-specific open chromatin allows the temporal transcription factor, Hunchback, to bind neuroblast-specific loci

    Sonia Q Sen et al.
    Spatial factors generate neuroblast-specific open chromatin, thereby biasing the subsequent binding of transcription factors to produce neuroblast-specific neurons.

    Identity of neocortical layer 4 neurons is specified through correct positioning into the cortex

    Koji Oishi et al.
    Layer 4 neuronal identity is specified by Protocadherin20 positioning the neurons into layer 4 so that they receive a positional cue from thalamocortical axons.
