    Similar GABAA receptor subunit composition in somatic and axon initial segment synapses of hippocampal pyramidal cells

    Katalin Kerti-Szigeti, Zoltan Nusser
    All perisomatic GABAergic synpases on hippocampal pyramidal cells have a similar GABAA receptor subunit composition.

    Structural basis of diverse membrane target recognitions by ankyrins

    Chao Wang et al.
    The 24 ankyrin repeats of ankyrin proteins form an extended solenoid that provides an extremely conserved groove for binding to numerous targets via combinatorial usage of multiple weak interaction sites.

    Embryonic and postnatal neurogenesis produce functionally distinct subclasses of dopaminergic neuron

    Elisa Galliano et al.
    In the mouse olfactory bulb, different types of local dopaminergic interneuron are produced before and after birth.

    Autoinhibition of ankyrin-B/G membrane target bindings by intrinsically disordered segments from the tail regions

    Keyu Chen et al.
    The 24 ANK repeats of each ankyrin are inhibited by combinatorial bindings of multiple disordered segments from their tail regions, suggesting a mechanism for differential regulations of membrane target bindings by ankyrins.

    Point of View: Managing a sustainable deep-sea ‘blue economy’ requires knowledge of what actually lives there

    Adrian G Glover et al.
    High-throughput, integrative taxonomy has a crucial role to play in ensuring that the resources in our oceans are managed and developed in a sustainable manner.

    Acute intermittent hypoxia enhances corticospinal synaptic plasticity in humans

    Lasse Christiansen et al.
    Acute intermittent hypoxia is a noninvasive approach that enhances corticospinal function in humans, likely through alterations in corticospinal-motoneuronal synaptic transmission.

    The fibronectin synergy site re-enforces cell adhesion and mediates a crosstalk between integrin classes

    Maria Benito-Jardón et al.
    The fibronectin synergy site is only required in vivo when forces exceed or αvβ3 integrin levels fall below certain thresholds.

    Lognormal firing rate distribution reveals prominent fluctuation–driven regime in spinal motor networks

    Peter C Petersen, Rune W Berg
    Neuronal participation in generation of motor patterns in the spinal circuits is lognormal, which is an indication of a rich diversity of activity within the mean-driven as well as the fluctuation-driven regimes.

    Biophysics of object segmentation in a collision-detecting neuron

    Richard Burkett Dewell, Fabrizio Gabbiani
    Active dendritic processing enables an individual neuron to discriminate the spatial pattern of synaptic inputs, increasing neural and behavioral selectivity for escaping an impending threat.

    Myosin V functions as a vesicle tether at the plasma membrane to control neurotransmitter release in central synapses

    Dario Maschi et al.
    Synaptic vesicles undergo reversible tethering at the plasma membrane which is activity- and myosin V- dependent.
