    A cross-modality enhancement of defensive flight via parvalbumin neurons in zonal incerta

    Xiyue Wang et al.
    Parvalbumin positive GABAergic neurons in the ventral zona incerta receive input from somatosensory cortex and enhance sound-induced flight behavior, which underlies a cross-modality facilitation of defensive behavior by somatosensory input.

    Transitions in cell potency during early mouse development are driven by Notch

    Sergio Menchero et al.
    The Notch signaling pathway drives transitions in differentiation capacities during the gradual loss of potency that occurs in the preimplantation mouse embryo before the onset of the first lineage decisions.

    Retinal stem cells modulate proliferative parameters to coordinate post-embryonic morphogenesis in the eye of fish

    Erika Tsingos et al.
    3D niche topology imposes a spatially biased random stem cell loss, which is differentially fine-tuned in neural retina and retinal pigmented epithelium to regulate growth, shape, and cellular topology.
