Dr. Linnaea Ostroff on eLife!December 13, 2019
Using translating ribosome affinity purification (TRAP) with RNASeq to identify mRNAs in cortical axons regulated during associative memory, Dr. Ostroff demonstrates that translation in the adult forebrain dendrites is regulated by learning, and axons in the adult rat amygdala contain translation machinery. This opens the pathway to investigating the mechanisms by which translation is regulated in complex cells such as neurons.
Mauricio’s Paper in Science Signaling!June 1, 2021
In February 2021. Mauricio’s paper was published in Science Signaling. He used two different AD mouse models and found that ISRIB can reverse deficits in translation, synaptic plasticity, and memory. His paper also made the cover!
