Abstract

Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) play critical roles in neural circuit assembly and are frequently associated with neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders. Because hundreds of CAMs exist in the brain, their functional analysis has been challenging. Single-cell RNAseq, gene isoform-specific, and synapse-specific analyses are now breaking barriers. In this talk, I focus on the ontogenetic stability of neurexin isoform profiles and how this led to insights about the origin of hippocampal OLM cells.
