Abstract

The diversity of lncRNAs has expanded within mammals in tandem with the evolution of increased brain complexity, suggesting that lncRNAs play an integral role in this process. In this chapter, we will highlight the identification and characterization of lncRNAs in nervous system development. We discuss the potential role of lncRNAs in nervous system and brain evolution, along with efforts to create comprehensive catalogues that analyze spatial and temporal changes in lncRNA expression during nervous system development. Additionally, we focus on recent endeavors that attempt to assign function to lncRNAs during nervous system development. We highlight discrepancies that have been observed between in vitro and in vivo studies of lncRNA function and the challenges facing researchers in conducting mechanistic analyses of lncRNAs in the developing nervous system. Altogether, this chapter highlights the emerging role of lncRNAs in the developing brain and sheds light on novel, RNA-mediated mechanisms by which nervous system development is controlled.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 17. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 15 December 2017.
All research outputs
#2,202,344
of 25,728,855 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#321
of 5,274 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#42,902
of 423,853 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#32
of 493 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,728,855 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 91st percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 5,274 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.1. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 93% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 423,853 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 493 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 93% of its contemporaries.
