Glutamate Receptor Ion Channels: Structure, Regulation, and Function
This review discusses International Union of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology glutamate receptor nomenclature, structure, assembly, accessory subunits, interacting proteins, gene expression and translation, post-translational modifications, agonist and antagonist pharmacology, allosteric modulation, mechanisms of gating and permeation, roles in normal physiological function, as well as the potential therapeutic use of pharmacological agents acting at glutamate receptors.
Transient incorporation of native GluR2-lacking AMPA receptors during hippocampal long-term potentiation
It is demonstrated that long-term potentiation in CA1 hippocampal pyramidal neurons causes rapid incorporation of GluR2-lacking calcium-permeable (CP)-AMPARs, which are physiologically expressed at CA1Pyramidal cell synapses during LTP, and may be required for LTP consolidation.

Induction of LTP or LTD altered the short-term plasticity of transmission onto both pyramidal cells and interneuron CP AMPA synapses by a mechanism consistent with changes in release probability, revealing differential mechanisms of transmission at three classes of mossy fiber synapse made onto distinct targets.

Graded reduction of Pafah1b1 (Lis1) activity results in neuronal migration defects and early embryonic lethality
An essential, dosage-sensitive neuronal-specific role for Pafah1b1 in neuronal migration throughout the brain, and an essential role in early embryonic development are demonstrated.

It is found that hippocampal interneurons are produced in two neurogenic waves between E9–E12 and E12–E16 from MGE and CGE, respectively, and invade the hippocampus by E14, which provides a basic blueprint of the developmental origins of hippocampalinterneuron diversity.
This review brings together recently described properties and emerging principles of interneuron function that indicate a much more complex role for these cells than just providers of inhibition.

An overview of the current state of the field of interneuron research, focusing largely on the hippocampus, discusses recent advances related to the various cell types, including their development and maturation, expression of subtype-specific voltage- and ligand-gated channels, and their roles in network oscillations.
