    Transient inhibition of the ERK pathway prevents cerebellar developmental defects and improves long-term motor functions in murine models of neurofibromatosis type 1

    Edward Kim et al.
    Nf1 is required during early, but not late, cerebellar development to facilitate neuronal lamination, providing a potential therapeutic prevention strategy for NF1-associated developmental abnormalities.

    Comprehensive transcriptome analysis of cochlear spiral ganglion neurons at multiple ages

    Chao Li et al.
    RNA-Seq analysis and in vivo validation via genetic approach uncover that Scrt2 and Celf4 are expressed in inner ear auditory neurons throughout development.

    Mycobacterium tuberculosis SatS is a chaperone for the SecA2 protein export pathway

    Brittany K Miller et al.
    SatS of Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a new protein export chaperone with a role in exporting proteins by the specialized SecA2 pathway and a role in intracellular growth in macrophages.

    Functional genome-wide siRNA screen identifies KIAA0586 as mutated in Joubert syndrome

    Susanne Roosing et al.
    A supervised learning approach on a high-content genome-wide siRNA screen has identified 591 likely candidates for ciliopathies and facilitated in the discovery of KIAA0586 mutations in individuals with Joubert syndrome.

    Loss of the liver X receptor LXRα/β in peripheral sensory neurons modifies energy expenditure

    Virginie Mansuy-Aubert et al.
    In sensory neurons, the receptors LXRα and LXRβ sense dietary-derived molecules to regulate whole body energy expenditure, and present a possible target for new anti-obesity agents.

    Choice history biases subsequent evidence accumulation

    Anne E Urai et al.
    Choice history signals bias the interpretation of current sensory input, akin to shifting endogenous attention toward (or away from) the previously selected interpretation.

    Corollary discharge in precerebellar nuclei of sleeping infant rats

    Didhiti Mukherjee et al.
    Infant rats distinguish between self- and other-generated movements, and they do so primarily when moving during active sleep.

    Identification of a novel spinal nociceptive-motor gate control for Aδ pain stimuli in rats

    Dvir Blivis et al.
    A novel mechanism for gating nociceptive sensory-motor behavior is identified in freely behaving rats using high-speed videography that is controlled by posture and modulated by opioid and non-opioid receptor-dependent processes.

    Auditory cortex shapes sound responses in the inferior colliculus

    Jennifer M Blackwell et al.
    Feedback from the mammalian auditory cortex to the midbrain decreases sound selectivity, altering how sounds are processed in the brain.

    Regulation of food intake by mechanosensory ion channels in enteric neurons

    William H Olds, Tian Xu
    Manipulating the activity of ‘stretch-sensitive’ ion channels in neurons innervating the digestive system of fruit flies has dramatic effects on food intake, suggesting that these ion channels could be targets for drugs to help tackle obesity.
