  • MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are emerging as key modulators of post-transcriptional gene regulation in a plethora of tissues, including the nervous system. Recent evidence points to a widespread role for neural miRNAs at various stages of synaptic development, including dendritogenesis, synapse formation and synapse maturation. Furthermore, studies from invertebrates indicate that miRNAs might contribute to the control of synapse function and plasticity in the adult. Key features of synapse-relevant… CONTINUE READING
