Abstract

In this issue of Neuron, Fossati et al. (2016) report that through its domain structure, SRGAP2A, a Rho-GTPase-activating protein, can co-regulate excitatory and inhibitory synapse development, offering a putative evolutionary genetic mechanism for preserving excitatory/inhibitory balance during speciation.
