    TRPM channels mediate learned pathogen avoidance following intestinal distention

    Adam Filipowicz et al.
    Behavioral assays using Caenorhabditis elegans show that a learned pathogen avoidance following intestinal distention requires specific chemosensory neurons and TRPM channels in the intestine and excretory cell.

    Intestinal infection regulates behavior and learning via neuroendocrine signaling

    Jogender Singh, Alejandro Aballay
    Feedback from the intestine during infection can modulate the behavior, learning, and microbial perception of the host.

    The paraventricular thalamus is a critical mediator of top-down control of cue-motivated behavior in rats

    Paolo Campus et al.
    A top-down circuit generating from the prelimbic cortex and projecting to the paraventricular nucleus of the thalamus mediates individual differences in cue-elicited responding by affecting subcortical dopamine-dependent incentive learning.

    Increasing heart vascularisation after myocardial infarction using brain natriuretic peptide stimulation of endothelial and WT1+ epicardial cells

    Na Li et al.
    Brain natriuretic peptide supplementation can increase cardiac neovascularization in infarcted hearts by stimulating endogenous endothelial cell proliferation and proliferation of precursor cells, which will differentiate into endothelial cells.

    Homeostasis in C. elegans sleep is characterized by two behaviorally and genetically distinct mechanisms

    Stanislav Nagy et al.
    The sleep cycle of nematode worms adjusts to compensate for sleep disturbances, with neuropeptide Y involved in the response to minor disruptions, and the transcription factor DAF-16/FOXO in the response to major disruptions.

    Shared behavioral mechanisms underlie C. elegans aggregation and swarming

    Siyu Serena Ding et al.
    Two seemingly distinct behaviors in social C. elegans worms, namely aggregating into groups and swarming over food, are driven by the same underlying mechanisms.

    Complementary α-arrestin-ubiquitin ligase complexes control nutrient transporter endocytosis in response to amino acids

    Vasyl Ivashov et al.
    Metabolic cues enlist ubiquitin ligase adaptors for the selective control of cellular nutrient acquisition strategies.

    Single cell, super-resolution imaging reveals an acid pH-dependent conformational switch in SsrB regulates SPI-2

    Andrew Tze Fui Liew et al.
    Inside the acidic vacuole, expression, DNA binding and DNA binding affinity of the Salmonella regulator SsrB is stimulated by acid pH.

    The Na+/Ca2+, K+ exchanger NCKX4 is required for efficient cone-mediated vision

    Frans Vinberg et al.
    Molecular, genetic, and functional analysis is used to show that the olfactory Na+/Ca2+, K+ exchanger NCKX4 is expressed in cone photoreceptors and is critical for the wide operating range and high temporal resolution of cone-mediated vision.
