Transgenic Monkeys Overexpressing Human Mecp2 Gene Exhibit Autism-Like Behaviors and Germline Transmission
A recent study published in Nature demonstrated that transgenic monkeys overexpressing human autism-related gene MECP2 exhibited autism-like behaviors and germ-line transmission. This work was performed by researchers in Dr. QIU Zilong’s Lab and Dr. SUN Qiang’s team. This work has successfully constructed a monkey model overexpressing human autism-related gene MECP2. ....
Behavior Selection Controlled by a Dopaminergic-Inhibitory Neural Circuit
In a article published online in NEURON on January 22, entitled "Visual Cue-Discriminative Dopaminergic Control of Visuomotor Transformation and Behavior Selection", Dr. DU Jiulin's lab identified a novel circuit mechanism through which behavior selection is controlled at the stage of visuomotor transformation by a visually responsive dopaminergic....
