Del Pino I, Marín O (2014) Sculpting circuits: CRH interneurons modulate neuronal integration. Dev Cell 30: 639-40

Integration of newly generated neurons into adult cell assemblies is a key mechanism for network plasticity. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Garcia et al. (2014) reveal a neuropeptidergic signaling mechanism by which interneurons of the olfactory system act as directors for the activity-dependent integration of adult-born granule cells.
