The paper by K. Yonehara*, M. Fiscella*, A. Drinnenberg*, et al. entitled “Congenital Nystagmus Gene FRMD7 is necessary for establishing a neuronal circuit asymmetry for direction selectivity” was chosen for the “Best of Neuron” selection 2015-2016. “Best of Neuron“ includes ground-breaking neuroscience research published in Neuron and is a collection of editors’ and readers’ favorites.
MaxWell Biosystems HD-MEA core technology was used in this study, to characterize the disease phenotype discovered in the FRMD7 mutant retina. Mutation in the FRMD7 gene is linked to the human eye disease Congenital Nystagmus.
