The fundamental role of the brain-specific myelin transcription factor 1-like (MYT1L) gene in cases of intellectual disability and in the etiology of neurodevelopmental disorders is increasingly recognized. Yet, its function remains under-investigated. Here, we identify a network of helix-loop-helix (HLH) transcriptional regulators controlled by MYT1L, as indicated by our analyses in human neural stem cells and in the human brain.

Amarillo fish females (Girardinichthys multiradiatus) vibrate when conspecific males approach them; the reason behind this behaviour is unclear. Hypotheses are that females vibrate either to avoid aggression from males or to court them. We prevented females from vibrating by temporarily blocking their lateral line organs and eyes, on the assumption that they rely on these senses to detect approaching males.

Transplantation of neural stem cells (NSCs) is a promising therapeutic approach for Huntington's disease (HD). HD is characterized by a progressive loss of medium-sized spiny neurons (MSNs) in the striatum. DARPP-32 (dopamine and cyclic AMP-regulated phosphoprotein, 32 kDa) is expressed in 98% of these MSNs.
