M. Engel and A.C. conceived and designed the experiments and wrote the manuscript.

M. Engel performed and analyzed most experiments including m6A/m-seq; bioinformatics; m6A-RIP-qPCR; and mouse, behavior, and cell culture experiments. C.E., P.M.K., L.T., and M.R.-H. assisted in experiments.

M.J. performed preliminary experiments with no data used.

S.R. performed bioinformatics analysis of pilot m6A/m-seq experiments not included.

S.G. and J.H.H. generated Mettl3 mice.

C.N. and M.U. performed and analyzed mass spectrometry experiments.

M. Eder performed and analyzed electrophysiological studies.

J.A. and E.B.B. provided human microarray data and clinical samples.

P.W., D.L., C.T.W., M.V.S., J.M.D., and E.B.B. assisted in the design of the project.

The study was supervised by A.C.
