Cell adhesion molecules: signalling functions at the synapse

Matthew B. Dalva, Andrew C. McClelland, Matthew S. Kayser
2007 Nature Reviews Neuroscience  
Many cell adhesion molecules are localized at synaptic sites in neuronal axons and dendrites. These molecules bridge pre-and postsynaptic specializations but do far more than simply provide a mechanical link between cells. In this review, we will discuss the roles these proteins have during development and at mature synapses. Synaptic adhesion proteins participate in the formation, maturation, function and plasticity of synaptic connections. Together with conventional synaptic transmission

CNS synapses are specialized sites of cell-cell contact that mediate the transmission of information between neurons. Synapses are a key site of regulation within neural networks and are characterized by multi-protein complexes arranged at tightly apposed pre-and postsynaptic terminals. Communication between neurons at synapses is mediated primarily by neurotransmitter release and by the gating of postsynaptic receptor ion channels, but a growing body of evidence indicates that signalling is also mediated by adhesion molecules that interact in a homo-or heterophilic fashion across the synaptic cleft. As at other cell-cell junctions, such as epithelial tight junctions or the immune synapse, research in a variety of neuronal subtypes has shown that synaptically localized cell adhesion molecules (SAMs) are not merely static structural components but are often dynamic regulators of synapse function. When pairs of SAMs interact, they can induce the formation of new synapses or modulate the function of existing synapses through signalling cascades or secondary protein-protein interactions. Numerous studies indicate that interactions between specific SAMs can control synapse formation, regulate dendritic spine morphology, modify synaptic receptor function and modulate synaptic plasticity. So, SAMs can mediate physical interactions between cells and act at multiple steps in the life of a synapse (FIG. 1) . Here, we focus on well-studied classes of SAMs that have roles at both developing and mature synapses, namely neurexins and neuroligins, EphBs and ephrin-Bs, immunoglobulin Correspondence to: M.B.D. dalva@mail.med.upenn.edu. Competing interests statement The authors declare no competing financial interests. Note added in proof In a recently published manuscript, Futai et al. 144 demonstrate that trans-synaptic β-neurexin-neuroligin interactions can modulate presynaptic function. The authors show that overexpression or knockdown of PSD-95 in the postsynaptic cell modulates presynaptic release probability, and that these effects are blocked when trans-synaptic β-neurexin-neuroligin signalling is disrupted. This paper provides further evidence that SAMs act to regulate synaptic function.

Cognitive Neuroscience [chapter]

James L. McClelland, Matthew A.L. Ralph
2015 International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences  
The ability to maintain information online beyond sensory stimulation is regarded as a key contribution of working memory to goaldirected behaviour. It is widely accepted that sustained neural activity is a key mechanism of stimulus maintenance, but it is unclear to what extent the neural generators of sustained activity change from stimulus-encoding to maintenance. Using eventrelated potentials in humans, we show that, in a delayed match-to-sample task, slow shifts over parieto-occipital
more » ... ode sites had a different topography and polarity during encoding and delay maintenance of images depicting scenes. This clearly demonstrates that neural generators of sustained activity associated with stimulus-encoding and delay maintenance differed, and that the change between these generators occurred time-locked to the onset of the delay period. We also investigated how monetary reward incentives modulated the amplitude and topography of sustained delay activity and the ability to suppress irrelevant distracting information during the delay. Reward incentives improved maintenance performance and this was correlated with an expansion of the parieto-occipital electrode sites that were entrained into sustained delay activity (rather than improved distractor suppression), suggesting that under the influence of reward, the parieto-occipital regions that contributed to delay maintenance expanded in size.

Computing bases of modular forms using the graded algebra structure [article]

Michael Lam, Noah McClelland, Matthew Petty, John Webb
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We develop a new algorithm to compute a basis for M_k(Γ_0(N)), the space of weight k holomorphic modular forms on Γ_0(N), in the case when the graded algebra of modular forms over Γ_0(N) is generated at weight two. Our tests show that this algorithm significantly outperforms a commonly used algorithm which relies more heavily on modular symbols.

2019 arXiv   pre-print
Neuromorphic networks based on nanodevices, such as metal oxide memristors, phase change memories, and flash memory cells, have generated considerable interest for their increased energy efficiency and density in comparison to graphics processing units (GPUs) and central processing units (CPUs).

The main objective of this work is to reduce this space complexity by using low-rank approximations of stochastic gradient descent. This low spatial complexity combined with streaming methods allows for significant reductions in memory and compute overhead, opening the doors for improvements in area, time and energy efficiency of training. We refer to this algorithm and architecture to implement it as the streaming batch eigenupdate (SBE) approach.

Missed and Mismanaged Injuries of the Spinal Cord

2002 Journal of Trauma  
Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of missed and mismanaged injuries of the spinal cord, to identify factors contributing to a failure to recognize such injuries, and to assess the consequences of such failures. Methods: Missed and mismanaged injuries were defined using previously validated statements. All medical records and radiographs of patients with acute traumatic spinal cord injury admitted to the Regional Spinal Cord Injury Unit in Sheffield, United

Results: Of the 569 patients, the diagnosis of spinal cord injury was missed in 52 instances (9.1%). The patients were mismanaged in 34 instances, and the treatment offered to 30 was considered negligent. In 26 of 52 (50%), mismanagement resulted in neurologic deterioration. The study identified several factors that contributed to a failure to recognize a spinal cord injury. These include ambience and circumstances surrounding the injury, inadequate neurologic assessment, associated injuries, and radiographic errors.

2012 PLoS ONE  
Virulence and persistence in the BALB/c mouse gut was tested for 32 strains of Salmonella enterica for which genome sequencing is complete or underway, including 17 serovars within subspecies I (enterica), and two representatives of each of the other five subspecies. Only serovar Paratyphi C strain BAA1715 and serovar Typhimurium strain 14028 were fully virulent in mice. Three divergent atypical Enteritidis strains were not virulent in BALB/c, but two efficiently persisted. Most of the other

Strains with heavily degraded genomes persisted very poorly, if at all. None of the strains tested provided immunity to Typhimurium infection. These data greatly expand on the known significant strain-to-strain variation in mouse virulence and highlight the need for comparative genomic and phenotypic studies.

2010 Optics Letters  
Several recently-developed particle-tracking and imaging methods achieve three-dimensional sensitivity through the introduction of angled micromirrors into the observation volume of an optical microscope. Here, we model the imaging response of such devices, and show how the direct and reflected images of a fluorescent particle are affected. In particle-tracking applications, asymmetric image degradation manifests itself as systematic tracking errors. Based on our results, we identify strategies

Superparamagnetic tunnel junctions (SMTJs) are promising sources for the randomness required by some compact and energy-efficient computing schemes. Coupling SMTJs gives rise to collective behavior that could be useful for cognitive computing. We use a simple linear electrical circuit to mutually couple two SMTJs through their stochastic electrical transitions. When one SMTJ makes a thermally induced transition, the voltage across both SMTJs changes, modifying the transition rates of both. This
