    Freshwater monitoring by nanopore sequencing

    Lara Urban et al.
    From now on, nanopore metagenomics can be used to monitor aquatic environments with high spatiotemporal resolution, by use of a benchmarked, standardised and cost-effective workflow.

    Visual cue-related activity of cells in the medial entorhinal cortex during navigation in virtual reality

    Amina A Kinkhabwala et al.
    Cue cells in the medial entorhinal cortex encode visual cues during virtual navigation, supporting the hypothesis that the brain represents visual cue information to error-correct grid cell firing during path-integration.

    An afferent white matter pathway from the pulvinar to the amygdala facilitates fear recognition

    Jessica McFadyen et al.
    A subcortical white matter connection from the pulvinar to the amygdala predicts how well we recognise fearful faces and the strength of feed-forward neural connectivity.

    Stepwise activation mechanism of the scramblase nhTMEM16 revealed by cryo-EM

    Valeria Kalienkova et al.
    cryo-EM reveals the properties of distinct conformations occupied during activation of the lipid scramblase nhTMEM16 and provides new insights into its interactions with the lipid environment.

    Cryo-EM structure of the rhodopsin-Gαi-βγ complex reveals binding of the rhodopsin C-terminal tail to the gβ subunit

    Ching-Ju Tsai et al.
    The structure of a light-sensitive G protein-coupled receptor in complex with a Gi-protein heterotrimer provides a structural foundation for the role of the receptor C-terminal tail in scaffolding and signaling.
