    Shared mechanisms of auditory and non-auditory vocal learning in the songbird brain

    James N McGregor, Abigail L Grassler ... Samuel J Sober
    A novel, non-auditory learning paradigm reveals that songbirds can modify their vocal output based on somatosensory signals and that a common set of brain pathways underlies both this form of vocal learning and auditory-guided vocal learning.

    Identification of putative enhancer-like elements predicts regulatory networks active in planarian adult stem cells

    Jakke Neiro, Divya Sridhar ... Aziz Aboobaker
    Predicted gene regulatory networks active in planarians adult stem cells provide testable hypotheses about the control of pluripotency and differentiation in animals.

    Isometric spiracular scaling in scarab beetles—implications for diffusive and advective oxygen transport

    Julian M Wagner, C Jaco Klok ... Jon F Harrison
    Diffusion but not advection becomes increasingly challenging for gas transport across insect spiracles as body size increases.

    The Candida albicans virulence factor candidalysin polymerizes in solution to form membrane pores and damage epithelial cells

    Charles M Russell, Katherine G Schaefer ... Francisco N Barrera
    The molecular mechanism that candidalysin uses to perforate membranes is unraveled, which opens the door to the rational design of inhibitors against candidiasis.

    Rabphilin 3A binds the N-peptide of SNAP-25 to promote SNARE complex assembly in exocytosis

    Tianzhi Li, Qiqi Cheng ... Cong Ma
    A new binding mode between Rabphilin 3A and SNAP-25 enables efficient SNARE complex assembly via inducing a conformation change in SNAP-25 SNARE motif.

    Functional brain reconfiguration during sustained pain

    Jae-Joong Lee, Sungwoo Lee ... Choong-Wan Woo
    Human neuroimaging with time-evolving network analysis reveals dynamic interactions among multiple functional brain networks in response to sustained pain.

    7-Dehydrocholesterol-derived oxysterols cause neurogenic defects in Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome

    Hideaki Tomita, Kelly M Hines ... Libin Xu
    A 7-dehydrocholesterol-derived oxysterol in SLOS was found to profoundly impact neurogenesis during cortical development by interacting with glucocorticoid receptor, which points to new therapeutic approaches for SLOS by targeting the activities of this oxysterol.
