    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Genetic and neuronal regulation of sleep by neuropeptide VF

    Daniel A Lee et al.
    Genetic experiments in zebrafish identify neuropeptide VF (NPVF) signaling and NPVF-expressing neurons as a novel vertebrate hypothalamic sleep-promoting system that is functionally conserved with invertebrates.

    A quantitative hypermorphic CNGC allele confers ectopic calcium flux and impairs cellular development

    David M Chiasson et al.
    A mutant allele encoding a deregulated subunit of an ion channel tetramer revealed a mechanistic connection between protein heteromerization and quantitative genetic behavior.
