Neuregulin-1 (NRG-1) signaling has been implicated in inductive interactions between pre- and postsynaptic partners during synaptogenesis. We used gene targeting to selectively disrupt cysteine-rich domain-(CRD-) containing NRG-1 isoforms. In CRD-NRG-1-/-mice, peripheral projections defasciculated and displayed aberrant branching patterns within their(More)
Intracranial arachnoid cysts are developmental anomalies that are generally asymptomatic. We describe a 6-month-old boy with macrocephaly but normal neurological development who was found to have a rare, massive basal arachnoid cyst occupying most of the cranium and extending superiorly, causing significant shift due to mass effect.
