New publication in Cell Reports for Riccio Lab
Neurons are one of the most specialised cell types in an organism. They have the main role of connecting to each other (eg. in our brain) or to other tissues (eg. our muscles). To reach their targets, neurons grow long cellular extensions, the dendrites and the axon, that have specific functions and rely on the expression of distinct proteins.
