NuMA recruits dynein activity to microtubule minus-ends at mitosis.

NuMA recruits dynein activity to microtubule minus-ends at mitosis. Elife. 2017 Nov 29;6: Authors: Hueschen CL, Kenny SJ, Xu K, Dumont S Abstract To build the spindle at mitosis, motors exert spatially regulated forces on microtubules. We know that dynein pulls on mammalian spindle microtubule minus-ends, and this localized activity at ends is predicted to […]

Optogenetic Retinal Gene Therapy with the Light Gated GPCR Vertebrate Rhodopsin.

Optogenetic Retinal Gene Therapy with the Light Gated GPCR Vertebrate Rhodopsin. Methods Mol Biol. 2018;1715:177-189 Authors: Gaub BM, Berry MH, Visel M, Holt A, Isacoff EY, Flannery JG Abstract In retinal disease, despite the loss of light sensitivity as photoreceptors die, many retinal interneurons survive in a physiologically and metabolically functional state for long periods. […]

Frontal Monitoring and Parietal Evidence: Mechanisms of Error Correction.

Related Articles Frontal Monitoring and Parietal Evidence: Mechanisms of Error Correction. J Cogn Neurosci. 2016 Aug;28(8):1166-77 Authors: Navarro-Cebrian A, Knight RT, Kayser AS Abstract When we respond to a stimulus, our decisions are based not only on external stimuli but also on our ongoing performance. If the response deviates from our goals, monitoring and decision-making […]

A Genetic Polymorphism of the Human Dopamine Transporter Determines the Impact of Sleep Deprivation on Brain Responses to Rewards and Punishments.

Related Articles A Genetic Polymorphism of the Human Dopamine Transporter Determines the Impact of Sleep Deprivation on Brain Responses to Rewards and Punishments. J Cogn Neurosci. 2016 Jun;28(6):803-10 Authors: Greer SM, Goldstein AN, Knutson B, Walker MP Abstract Despite an emerging link between alterations in motivated behavior and a lack of sleep, the impact of […]
