    DYT1 dystonia increases risk taking in humans

    David Arkadir et al.
    Patients with DYT1 dystonia show aberrant risk-aversion in a simple decision-making task, in accordance with predictions of a reinforcement learning model of corticostriatal trial-and-error learning.

    The role of oxytocin in delay of gratification and flexibility in non-social decision making

    Georgia Eleni Kapetaniou et al.
    Oxytocin was found to significantly improve non-social decision making in a healthy sample, suggesting a domain-general function of the hormone, in contrast to its previously hypothesized social domain specificity.

    Parallel encoding of sensory history and behavioral preference during Caenorhabditis elegans olfactory learning

    Christine E Cho et al.
    Odor conditioning induces two changes in olfactory neurons: non-associative sensory adaptation to odor history, and associative, bidirectional changes in behavioral output that are oppositely regulated in aversive and appetitive learning.

    LTD at amygdalocortical synapses as a novel mechanism for hedonic learning

    Melissa S Haley et al.
    Taking advantage of awell-established learning paradigm, conditioned taste aversion (CTA), change of hedonic value of a palatable tastant revealed the neural mechanisms encoding this learning process.

    A molecular mechanism underlying gustatory memory trace for an association in the insular cortex

    Chinnakkaruppan Adaikkan, Kobi Rosenblum
    The role of CaMKII-GluA1 in the cortex in maintaining a given taste memory trace for an aversive association has been elucidated.

    Impaired adaptation of learning to contingency volatility in internalizing psychopathology

    Christopher Gagne et al.
    Hierarchical modeling of internalizing symptoms and task performance reveals that difficulty adapting probabilistic learning to second-order uncertainty is common to anxiety and depression and holds across rewarding and punishing outcomes.

    Selective dendritic localization of mRNA in Drosophila mushroom body output neurons

    Jessica Mitchell et al.
    Specific mRNAs localize to the dendrites of Drosophila mushroom body output neurons.

    Dopaminergic neurons write and update memories with cell-type-specific rules

    Yoshinori Aso, Gerald M Rubin
    Building on previous work (Aso et al., 2014a; Aso et al., 2014b), cell-type-specific drivers and optogenetics are used to control the local release of dopamine and reveal that distinct learning rules are implemented in parallel memory units.

    Intestinal infection regulates behavior and learning via neuroendocrine signaling

    Jogender Singh, Alejandro Aballay
    Feedback from the intestine during infection can modulate the behavior, learning, and microbial perception of the host.

    Shared mushroom body circuits underlie visual and olfactory memories in Drosophila

    Katrin Vogt et al.
    One memory center in the fly brain processes distinct appetitive and aversive associative memories of olfactory and visual cues using shared local circuits.
