Heather Bowling, Eric Klann

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

In this issue of Neuron, Tang etal. (2014) explore the relationship between developmental dendritic pruning, elevated mTORC1 signaling, macroautophagy, and autism spectrum disorder. The study provides valuable new insight into mTORC1-dependent cellular dysfunction and neurodevelopmental disorders.
