KCNQ2/3 channels have arisen as critical regulators of neonatal brain excitability. Highlighting the importance of these channels, a growing number of loss- and gain-of-function variants in Kcnq2/3 have been reported in patients with severe neonatal epileptic encephalopathy. In this seminar, we will discuss our recent progress in deciphering the function of KCNQ2/3 channel

Learning to fear threats in the environment is critical for survival, but often leads to mental illnesses including PTSD. Once learned, traumatic memories can be suppressed—though this is often short-lived. New work reveals how brain circuits that make and break traumatic memories function to regulate fear and its relapse.
