    Splicing in a single neuron is coordinately controlled by RNA binding proteins and transcription factors

    Morgan Thompson et al.
    Single-cell splicing of a conserved neuronal kinase is established by a combinatorial code of fate-determining transcription factors and neuronal RNA binding proteins, with different combinations in different neuron types.

    Spatiotemporal interplay between multisensory excitation and recruited inhibition in the lamprey optic tectum

    Andreas A Kardamakis et al.
    Signals conveyed from two different senses from a given point in space converge onto the same neurons of the optic tectum that trigger the gaze-control-system, and at the same time inhibit other parts of the tectal motor map.

    Variation in olfactory neuron repertoires is genetically controlled and environmentally modulated

    Ximena Ibarra-Soria et al.
    The neuronal composition of a mouse’s nose is individually unique due to a combination of olfactory experience and genetic variation local to olfactory receptor genes.

    Na+/K+ pump interacts with the h-current to control bursting activity in central pattern generator neurons of leeches

    Daniel Kueh et al.
    The dynamic current generated Na+/K+ pump interacts with the h-current to control the bursting activity of oscillator heart interneurons.

    Learning place cells, grid cells and invariances with excitatory and inhibitory plasticity

    Simon Nikolaus Weber, Henning Sprekeler
    A large variety of spatial representations implied in rodent navigation could arise robustly and rapidly from inputs with a weak spatial structure, by an interaction of excitatory and inhibitory synaptic plasticity.

    Adaptation of olfactory receptor abundances for efficient coding

    Tiberiu Teşileanu et al.
    A model of efficient coding by olfactory neurons explains context-dependence observed in the effect of perturbations to the olfactory environment.

    Dendritic nonlinearities are tuned for efficient spike-based computations in cortical circuits

    Balázs B Ujfalussy et al.
    Dendrites combine the inputs that they receive from other neurons using calculations that have been optimized for those particular input patterns.

    Attention operates uniformly throughout the classical receptive field and the surround

    Bram-Ernst Verhoef, John HR Maunsell
    A spatially-tuned normalization model accounts for neuronal responses to attended or unattended stimuli that are presented inside the classical receptive field or the surround, and explains various other observations.

    Sound exposure dynamically induces dopamine synthesis in cholinergic LOC efferents for feedback to auditory nerve fibers

    Jingjing Sherry Wu et al.
    Based on the animal’s recent history of sound exposure, cholinergic auditory brainstem neurons dynamically regulate dopamine synthesis for inhibitory feedback to the inner ear.

    Genetic dissection of the different roles of hypothalamic kisspeptin neurons in regulating female reproduction

    Luhong Wang et al.
    Estradiol regulates the pre-ovulatory luteinizing hormone surge through hypothalamic anteroventral periventricular kisspeptin neurons and maintains reproductive cyclicity through arcuate kisspeptin neurons in an activational manner.
