    A common 1.6 mb Y-chromosomal inversion predisposes to subsequent deletions and severe spermatogenic failure in humans

    Pille Hallast et al.
    In addition to its academic merits, characterizing the genetic determinants of male (in)fertility and identifying clinically actionable genetic variants can lead to improved diagnosis or even treatment of such conditions.

    Proteome-wide analysis of a malaria vaccine study reveals personalized humoral immune profiles in Tanzanian adults

    Flavia Camponovo et al.
    Malaria pre-exposed volunteers exhibit large breadth of humoral immune responses, with strong variation between individuals, which might compromise vaccine-induced humoral immune response due to natural imprinting.

    Early life adversity decreases pre-adolescent fear expression by accelerating amygdala PV cell development

    Gabriela Manzano Nieves et al.
    Early life adversity (ELA) accelerated PV+ interneuron development in BLA and delayed the ability of pre-adolescent mice to express, but not form, an auditory conditioned fear memory in childhood.

    Mesolimbic dopamine projections mediate cue-motivated reward seeking but not reward retrieval in rats

    Briac Halbout et al.
    Inhibiting ventral tegmental dopamine neurons, or their inputs to nucleus accumbens, disrupts cue-motivated reward seeking in a manner that depends on the microstructure of behavior.

    Early life stress causes sex-specific changes in adult fronto-limbic connectivity that differentially drive learning

    Jordon D White et al.
    Mice exposed to complex early adversity show similar diffusion MRI changes to those reported in humans and sex-specific changes in connectivity that differentially affect contextual deficits in males and females.

    Valence-encoding in the lateral habenula arises from the entopeduncular region

    Hao Li et al.
    Lateral habenula neurons participate in motivated behavior via their activation by negative affective stimuli, a major source of which arises from the rostral entopeduncular nucleus.
    1. Neuroscience

    Repeated social defeat stress enhances glutamatergic synaptic plasticity in the VTA and cocaine place conditioning

    Claire E Stelly et al.
    Enhanced glutamatergic synaptic plasticity in mesolimbic dopaminergic neurons may contribute to repeatedly stressed rats becoming more vulnerable to addiction.
    1. Neuroscience

    Oligodendrocytes regulate presynaptic properties and neurotransmission through BDNF signaling in the mouse brainstem

    Miae Jang et al.
    Oligodendrocytes are actively engaged in the precise control of synaptic functions in the CNS through activity-dependent BDNF signaling.
  1. Early-Career Travel Grants: Six researchers receive support to share their work

    Scientists from Canada, Ecuador, Germany, the UK and the US will present their research online and at future scientific meetings.
  2. eLife and COVID-19: Keeping communications open with online research talks

    eLife hosts online seminars to support early-career researchers to present their research online instead of in person.
