    Lysosome activity is modulated by multiple longevity pathways and is important for lifespan extension in C. elegans

    Yanan Sun et al.
    Cell biological and genetic studies reveal age-associated alterations of lysosomes and modulation of lysosomal activity by longevity pathways.

    Differences in reward biased spatial representations in the lateral septum and hippocampus

    Hannah S Wirtshafter, Matthew A Wilson
    Reward-related spatial information is preferentially represented in the lateral septum compared to the hippocampus and may be used downstream to direct the animal to rewarded locations.

    Structural insights into sodium transport by the oxaloacetate decarboxylase sodium pump

    Xin Xu et al.
    The structure of the membrane-integrated components of a unique substrate decarboxylation-driven primary-active sodium pump provides insights into its transport mechanism.

    High-fat diet enhances starvation-induced hyperactivity via sensitizing hunger-sensing neurons in Drosophila

    Rui Huang et al.
    Fruit flies fed with high-fats diets are hyper-sensitive to a hunger hormone AKH and exhibit enhanced food-seeking behavior when starved.

    Mechanisms of nucleotide selection by telomerase

    Matthew A Schaich et al.
    The roles of key telomerase active site residues were elucidated to determine how telomerase selects the correct from the incorrect nucleotide to maintain telomere integrity.

    A compositional neural code in high-level visual cortex can explain jumbled word reading

    Aakash Agrawal et al.
    Viewing a jumbled word activates an efficient visual representation in high-level visual cortex that is matched to stored words in the word form area.

    Regulation of nerve growth and patterning by cell surface protein disulphide isomerase

    Geoffrey MW Cook et al.
    The nerve growth-repellent activity that generates spinal nerve repeat-patterning in birds and mammals is identified at the molecular level, and a similar system is revealed in adult brain grey matter.

    Presynaptic APP levels and synaptic homeostasis are regulated by Akt phosphorylation of huntingtin

    Julie Bruyère et al.
    Reducing Akt-mediated huntingtin phosphorylation decreases APP accumulation at the synapse by reducing its anterograde axonal transport and ameliorates learning and memory in a mouse model of familial Alzheimer disease.

    A conserved RNA degradation complex required for spreading and epigenetic inheritance of heterochromatin

    Gergana Shipkovenska et al.
    Genetic and biochemical studies show that a conserved ribosome biogenesis complex also localizes to heterochromatin, where it triggers RNA degradation and promotes the spreading and epigenetic inheritance of histone methylation.
