    Functional integration of a serotonergic neuron in the Drosophila antennal lobe

    Xiaonan Zhang, Quentin Gaudry
    Serotonergic cells innervating the Drosophila antennal lobe are inhibited by odors and modulate olfactory responses in conjunction with the entire serotonergic network.
    1. Neuroscience

    A resource for the Drosophila antennal lobe provided by the connectome of glomerulus VA1v

    Jane Anne Horne et al.
    FIB-SEM is used to identify comprehensively and reconstruct 192 neurons and their complete connectome for glomerulus VA1v of the Drosophila antennal lobe, in particular to reconstruct its local interneurons.

    The roles of vision and antennal mechanoreception in hawkmoth flight control

    Ajinkya Dahake et al.
    Mechanosensors in the antennae of hawkmoths provide rapid sensory feedback for the control of fast flight manoeuvres, which acts in parallel to visual information.

    A surface proton antenna in carbonic anhydrase II supports lactate transport in cancer cells

    Sina Ibne Noor et al.
    Carbonic anhydrase II features a surface proton antenna that exclusively mediates proton exchange with monocarboxylate transporters to facilitate proton-coupled lactate transport in cancer cells.

    Decoding odor quality and intensity in the Drosophila brain

    Antonia Strutz et al.
    The lateral horn can be classified into three functional odor response domains that decode opposing hedonic valences and odor intensity.

    Airflow and optic flow mediate antennal positioning in flying honeybees

    Taruni Roy Khurana, Sanjay P Sane
    Honeybees determine their flight speed by combining feedback from optic flow and airflow.
    1. Neuroscience

    Projection neurons in Drosophila antennal lobes signal the acceleration of odor concentrations

    Anmo J Kim et al.
    Neurons in the fruit fly olfactory system respond most strongly to the sudden appearance of an odor, and to odors that are changing rapidly in strength, but are relatively insensitive to the absolute levels of an odor.
    1. Neuroscience

    Synaptic organization of the Drosophila antennal lobe and its regulation by the Teneurins

    Timothy J Mosca, Liqun Luo
    A comprehensive synapse-level analysis of a fly central-brain region has led to the identification of molecules that are necessary for mediating the normal density of connections.
  1. The benefits of new brain cells: an interview with Antonia Marín-Burgin

    Antonia Marín-Burgin is a Group Leader at the IBioBA-CONICET-MPSP Institute in Buenos Aires. Her research focuses on understanding how the neurons in the hippocampus – an area of the brain associated with navigation and memory formation – interact to form microcircuits.
    1. Neuroscience

    Humidity response depends on the small soluble protein Obp59a in Drosophila

    Jennifer S Sun et al.
    Hygroreception, a poorly understood process critical to insect survival, depends on a small protein in the antenna of the fruit fly that was previously thought to transport odorants.
