The development of the brain during embryonic growth has garnered much attention from the neuroscience research community. However, the events that occur in the maturing brain after birth are less well understood. Now, a team has identified the microRNA-29 family to be strikingly induced during the late stages of brain maturation. In addition, they found that deleting microRNA-29 in mice caused problems very similar to those seen in autism, epilepsy, and other neurodevelopmental conditions. This…
