    Position of UNC-13 in the active zone regulates synaptic vesicle release probability and release kinetics

    Keming Zhou et al.
    The precise position of UNC-13 at the active zone near a synapse depends on the N-terminus of the protein, and the C2A domain in particular, and is essential for accelerating neurotransmitter release.

    UNC-13L, UNC-13S, and Tomosyn form a protein code for fast and slow neurotransmitter release in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Zhitao Hu et al.
    Long and short variants of a protein called UNC-13, assisted by another called Tomosyn, regulate the timing of synaptic vesicle release in C. elegans.

    Heterodimerization of UNC-13/RIM regulates synaptic vesicle release probability but not priming in C. elegans

    Haowen Liu et al.
    RIM binding UNC-13L C2A domain releases UNC-13L from an autoinhibitory homodimeric complex to become fusion-competent, and regulates probability of synaptic vesicle release in the post-priming process.

    Diverse modes of synaptic signaling, regulation, and plasticity distinguish two classes of C. elegans glutamatergic neurons

    Donovan Ventimiglia, Cornelia I Bargmann
    Single-neuron synaptic imaging in vivo demonstrates that highly conserved molecules such as UNC-13, UNC-18, and protein kinase C, which are found at essentially every synapse make different functional contributions in Caenorhabditis elegans glutamatergic neurons.

    A single-cell transcriptomic atlas of the adult Drosophila ventral nerve cord

    Aaron M Allen et al.
    A single-cell atlas of the adult fly VNC charts the types and properties of cells for future studies of brain development and function.

    Calcium dynamics regulating the timing of decision-making in C. elegans

    Yuki Tanimoto et al.
    A series of quantitative behavioural and opto-physiological analyses using a novel robot microscope system reveals that C. elegans computes the time-differential and time-integral of sensory information for decision-making during olfactory navigation.

    Flexible motor sequence generation during stereotyped escape responses

    Yuan Wang et al.
    Time-ordered and flexible motor sequences in C.elegans are generated by combining an excitatory feedforward coupling and mutual inhibitions between neurons in different functional modules.

    Maintenance of homeostatic plasticity at the Drosophila neuromuscular synapse requires continuous IP3-directed signaling

    Thomas D James et al.
    Synapses employ distinct acute and chronic signaling processes in order to maintain physiologically appropriate levels of function.

    Aquaporin-4-dependent glymphatic solute transport in the rodent brain

    Humberto Mestre et al.
    An international collaboration between five independent research groups replicates findings confirming the importance of aquaporin-4 in glymphatic solute transport using five different mouse knockout lines.

    Genetic defects in β-spectrin and tau sensitize C. elegans axons to movement-induced damage via torque-tension coupling

    Michael Krieg et al.
    A conceptual framework and physical model shows how actin-spectrin networks and microtubule bundles can protect axons from mechanical stress.
