About this Research Topic
This topic will focus on the function of RNA binding proteins in neuronal development and plasticity. Papers concerning the components of ribonucleoprotein granules, identification of mRNA cargo, mechanisms controlling the transport and local translation of mRNA in neuronal dendrites and axons, the role of regulated protein translation in circuit development and function and diseases related to mRNA binding protein function will be encouraged.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements.
