Marques-Smith A, Favuzzi E, Rico B (2016) Shaping Early Networks to Rule Mature Circuits: Little MiRs Go a Long Way. Neuron 92: 1154-1157

Normative cortical processing depends on precise interactions between excitatory and inhibitory neurons. In this issue of Neuron, Lippi et al. (2016) identify miR-101 as a master regulator coordinating molecular programs during development that ultimately impact the activity of mature networks.
