The Kinesin KIF21B Regulates Microtubule Dynamics and Is Essential for Neuronal Morphology, Synapse Function, and Learning and Memory. | Radixin regulates synaptic GABA(A) receptor density and is essential for reversal learning and short-term memory. | GRIP1 interlinks N-cadherin and AMPA receptors at vesicles to promote combined cargo transport into dendrites. | Muskelin regulates actin filament- and microtubule-based GABA(A) receptor transport in neurons | Neuroligin 1 is dynamically exchanged at postsynaptic sites.
