    Dynamic changes in energy metabolites can be measured directly with high spatial and temporal resolution by use of enzyme-based microelectrodes. Here, to examine neuro-metabolic coupling during brain activation, we use combined microelectrodes to simultaneously measure extracellular glucose, lactate, and neural responses in the primary visual cortex to visual stimulation. We demonstrate rapid decreases in glucose and increases in lactate during neural activation. Changes in glucose and lactate signals are transient and closely coupled with neuronal firing.

  3. Input-specific regulation of hippocampal circuit maturation by non-muscle myosin IIB

    Non-muscle myosin II is an actin binding protein with three isoforms in the brain (IIA, IIB and IIC) encoded by the myh9, myh10, and myh14 genes in mice, respectively. We have studied the structure and the function of hippocampal CA1 neurons missing NMIIB and/or NMIIA proteins at different times during development. We have discovered that NMIIB is the major isoform regulating Schaffer collateral inputs, and that this regulation is restricted to early postnatal development.
