The NeuroCyto team has a new publication out! Published on November 5th in Science, this article elucidates how adenosine A2A receptors drive removal of inhibitory synapses depending on their activity. This is a fruitful collaboration with the labs of Sabine Lévi at Institut du Fer à Moulin (IFM) in Paris and Christophe Bernard at Institut de Neuroscience des Systèmes (INS) in Marseille.
