FENS-EJN 2014 Video Contest Winners Announced

FENS, in partnership with EJN, launched a video contest for the FENS Forum 2014. The contest challenged Forum student and postdoctoral fellow attendees, with creating videos about neuroscience.


cAMP-CREB signaling and bipolar disorder

Researchers established a novel viral method to make a surprising observation: the amplitude of cAMP–CREB signaling in cells from human skin biopsies predicted the way that the circadian hormone melatonin responds to light in healthy individuals, and it was much higher in cells from bipolar patients. “Our study suggests that variation in the activity of [...]

Downregulation of Centaurin gamma1A increases synaptic transmission at Drosophila larval neuromuscular junctions

by Mizuho Homma, Shun Nagashima, Toshifumi Fukuda, Shigeru Yanagi, Hiroyoshi Miyakawa, Emiko Suzuki, Takako Morimoto Abstract Adequate regulation of synaptic transmission is critical for appropriate neural circuit functioning. Although a number of molecules involved in synaptic neurotransmission have been identified, the molecular mechanisms regulating neurotransmission are not fully understood. Here, we focused on Centaurin gamma1A [...]
