The mechanisms underlying GABAA receptor function are central to new findings from the Moss lab, published this week in Nature Communications.  This work is also highlighted in an article by the paper's lead author, Rachel Hines, a former postdoctoral scholar in the Moss lab and now Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Nevada - Las Vegas.  Dr. Hines initiated this work during her postdoctoral training in the Moss lab.
