    Stxbp1/Munc18-1 haploinsufficiency impairs inhibition and mediates key neurological features of STXBP1 encephalopathy

    Wu Chen et al.
    Two genetically distinct Stxbp1 haploinsufficiency mouse models exhibit seizures and impairments in cognitive, psychiatric, and motor functions, representing robust preclinical models of STXBP1 encephalopathy with both construct and face validity.

    Targeting light-gated chloride channels to neuronal somatodendritic domain reduces their excitatory effect in the axon

    Jessica E Messier et al.
    A high axonal chloride concentration explains why activation of light-gated chloride channels causes neurotransmitter release, and a novel hybrid somatodendritic targeting motif ameliorates this phenomenon and improves their inhibitory function.

    The sifting of visual information in the superior colliculus

    Kyu Hyun Lee et al.
    The superior colliculus reveals hallmarks of sophisticated visual computation, including selectivity, invariance, and stimulus-specific habituation to behaviorally relevant stimuli.

    Optical dopamine monitoring with dLight1 reveals mesolimbic phenotypes in a mouse model of neurofibromatosis type 1

    J Elliott Robinson et al.
    Heterozygous Nf1 knockout mice exhibit distinct dopaminergic phenotypes in vivo, as revealed by the genetically encoded dopamine sensor dLight1, patch clamp electrophysiology, optogenetics, and novel viral tools for morphological analysis.

    Notch/Her12 signalling modulates, motile/immotile cilia ratio downstream of Foxj1a in zebrafish left-right organizer

    Barbara Tavares et al.
    Foxj1a makes cilia ultrastructurally motile, while Notch signalling stops cilia movement in Kupffer's vesicle.

    Protein arginine methylation facilitates KCNQ channel-PIP2 interaction leading to seizure suppression

    Hyun-Ji Kim et al.
    The PRMT1 protein mediates arginine methylation of KCNQ2 channels to control neuronal excitability.

    Epidemiological transition to mortality and refracture following an initial fracture

    Thao Phuong Ho-Le et al.
    The concept of compound fracture risk is redefined to combine the risk that an individual will sustain a fracture and the risk of mortality once the fracture has occurred.

    Non-Canonical G-quadruplexes cause the hCEB1 minisatellite instability in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Aurèle Piazza et al.
    A combination of genetics and biophysical approaches identifies an overlapping set of sequences that form non-canonical G-quadruplex structures in vitro and induce genomic instability in cells.

    Spinal microcircuits comprising dI3 interneurons are necessary for motor functional recovery following spinal cord transection

    Tuan V Bui et al.
    A genetically-defined population of spinal interneurons is reciprocally connected with spinal locomotor circuits and mediates recovery of locomotor function following spinal cord transection.
