    Genetic variation in the social environment affects behavioral phenotypes of oxytocin receptor mutants in zebrafish

    Diogo Ribeiro et al.
    Individual social behavior results from the interaction between the individuals own oxytocin receptor genotype and the oxytocin receptor genotypes of other individuals present in its social environment.

    Microbiota-driven transcriptional changes in prefrontal cortex override genetic differences in social behavior

    Mar Gacias et al.
    Gut microbiota can influence mPFC transcriptional profiles and myelin content, overriding the impact of genetic background in the development of social avoidance behavior.

    Inhibitory peptidergic modulation of C. elegans serotonin neurons is gated by T-type calcium channels

    Kara E Zang et al.
    Genetic analysis of how neuropeptides control C. elegans reproductive behavior shows how T-type calcium channels engage and disengage target neurons from these critical regulators of neural circuits and behavior.

    Magnetothermal genetic deep brain stimulation of motor behaviors in awake, freely moving mice

    Rahul Munshi et al.
    Magnetothermal neuromodulation providing quick, tetherless, precise on and off switching of neurons deep in the brain of freely moving animals is orthogonal to optogenetics and a breakthrough in remote modulation techniques.

    Sensitivity and kinetics of signal transmission at the first visual synapse differentially impact visually-guided behavior

    Ignacio Sarria et al.
    Adjusting key parameters of the synaptic transmission at a single defined synapse of the visual circuit can affect properties of this circuit and animal behavior.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Advancing biology through a deeper understanding of zebrafish ecology and evolution

    David M Parichy
    The zebrafish is a premier model organism for biomedical research, with a rich array of tools and genomic resources, and combining these with a fuller appreciation of wild zebrafish ecology could greatly extend its utility in biological research.

    Learning is enhanced by tailoring instruction to individual genetic differences

    David G Mets, Michael S Brainard
    Tailoring instructive experience to individual genetic biases improves vocal learning outcomes across genetic backgrounds in the Bengalese finch.

    A genetically defined asymmetry underlies the inhibitory control of flexor–extensor locomotor movements

    Olivier Britz et al.
    Two classes of premotor inhibitory neurons have specific roles in controlling flexor-extensor behaviors in mice, which is the underlying neural mechanism for limb driven movements in terrestrial vertebrates.
