    bMERB domains are bivalent Rab8 family effectors evolved by gene duplication

    Amrita Rai et al.
    A human three-helix Rab-binding domain can potentially bind to two Rab proteins simultaneously with different affinities at binding sites generated by gene duplication.

    Vocalization–whisking coordination and multisensory integration of social signals in rat auditory cortex

    Rajnish P Rao et al.
    Snout-to-snout contact modulates the response of rat auditory cortex to calls from other animals, indicating that the multisensory nature of social interaction is directly represented in the rat brain.

    Emergence of transformation-tolerant representations of visual objects in rat lateral extrastriate cortex

    Sina Tafazoli et al.
    Neuronal recordings from rat visual cortex reveal an object-processing pathway, along which neuronal representations become increasingly capable of supporting recognition of visual objects in spite of variation in their appearance.

    Structural development and dorsoventral maturation of the medial entorhinal cortex

    Saikat Ray, Michael Brecht
    The medial entorhinal cortex is important for spatial memory formation and matures from dorsal, where smaller spatial-scales are represented, to ventral, where larger spatial-scales are represented.

    KRAB-zinc finger protein gene expansion in response to active retrotransposons in the murine lineage

    Gernot Wolf et al.
    Unbiased ChIP-seq screens and genetic knockouts of large Kruppel associated box zinc finger protein (KRAB-ZFP) clusters reveal that evolutionarily young KRAB-ZFPs play a redundant role in retrotransposon restriction in mice.

    A Ras-like domain in the light intermediate chain bridges the dynein motor to a cargo-binding region

    Courtney M Schroeder et al.
    The dynein light intermediate chain is a member of the G protein superfamily and links the motor to several intracellular cargo adaptors.

    PPM1H phosphatase counteracts LRRK2 signaling by selectively dephosphorylating Rab proteins

    Kerryn Berndsen et al.
    PPM1H protein phosphatase dephosphorylates Rab proteins modulating LRRK2 signalling.

    Formation of retinal direction-selective circuitry initiated by starburst amacrine cell homotypic contact

    Thomas A Ray et al.
    Selective synapse formation in a retinal motion-sensitive circuit is orchestrated by starburst amacrine cells, which use homotypic interactions to initiate formation of a dendritic scaffold that recruits projections from circuit partners.

    Feedback inhibition and its control in an insect olfactory circuit

    Subhasis Ray et al.
    Electrophysiological recordings and a large-scale biophysical model show that a unique inhibitory neuron plays a central role in structuring olfactory codes in the insect brain.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: The Norway rat, from an obnoxious pest to a laboratory pet

    Klaudia Modlinska, Wojciech Pisula
    The rat is much more than a simple model, and a better appreciation of the natural history of wild rats would increase its value as a research organism.
