    Catalytically inactive scaffold proteins are major constituents of the postsynaptic density. Feng and Zhang describe the distinct binding properties of multi-PDZ-domain-containing scaffold proteins that enable them to actively participate in the dynamic regulation of signalling events at the synapse.

    DNA repair pathways are essential for normal nervous system development and function. McKinnon reviews the mechanisms of DNA damage and repair in the nervous system and how deficits in these pathways cause specific neuropathological symptoms.

    Most models of sensory processing consider the spatial and temporal aspects of sensory stimuli separately. Here, Buonomano and Maass describe a framework in which spatiotemporal computations emerge from the interaction between incoming stimuli and the internal dynamic state of neural networks.
