Welcome to Cell Biology and Neuroscience (CBN)

firestein2NJ Autism Grant Awarded: Cypin and Neuroligin-1 in synaptogenesis Prof. Bonnie Firestein was recently awarded a grant from the New Jersey Governor's Council for Medical Research and Treatment of Autism. The project will determine how cypin and Neuroligin-1 (NLGN-1) regulate excitatory synapse formation, since creating the appropriate number and type of connections is essential for proper brain development and function. Defects in synapse formation underlie a number of cognitive disorders, including autism and autism spectrum disorders.
