Activity-dependent neuronal plasticity is a fundamental mechanism through which the nervous system adapts to sensory experience. Several lines of evidence suggest that parvalbumin (PV+) interneurons are essential in this process, but the molecular mechanisms underlying the influence of experience on interneuron plasticity remain poorly understood.… (More)
Normative cortical processing depends on precise interactions between excitatory and inhibitory neurons. In this issue of Neuron, Lippi et al. (2016) identify miR-101 as a master regulator coordinating molecular programs during development that ultimately impact the activity of mature networks.
The function of cortical GABAergic interneurons is largely determined by their integration into specific neural circuits, but the mechanisms controlling the wiring of these cells remain largely unknown. This is particularly true for a major population of basket cells that express the neuropeptide cholecystokinin (CCK). Here we found that the tyrosine kinase… (More)
