    Phasic activation of ventral tegmental neurons increases response and pattern similarity in prefrontal cortex neurons

    Motoko Iwashita
    Transient increases in calcium release in prefrontal cortex neurons, observable only in awake animals, may form the basis of associative learning.

    Activity and Ca2+ regulate the mobility of TRPV1 channels in the plasma membrane of sensory neurons

    Eric N Senning, Sharona E Gordon
    Channel activity is a novel regulatory mechanism for channel mobility in the plasma membrane.

    Graded Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent coupling of voltage-gated CaV1.2 channels

    Rose E Dixon et al.
    The Ca2+-driven functional coupling of CaV1.2 channels is a mechanism of channel memory that may modulate the amplification of Ca2+ influx.

    Ca2+ entry into neurons is facilitated by cooperative gating of clustered CaV1.3 channels

    Claudia M Moreno et al.
    CaV1.3 channels of the short isoform are coupled via their C-terminal domains in a Ca2+-CaM-dependent manner, which facilitates Ca2+ influx and increases the discharge of hippocampal neurons.

    N6-methyladenosine of HIV-1 RNA regulates viral infection and HIV-1 Gag protein expression

    Nagaraja Tirumuru et al.
    Human proteins that add or remove the methyladenosine modification of cellular RNA, or recognize methylated RNA significantly affect HIV-1 infection or viral protein synthesis in cells, suggesting an important role for HIV-1 RNA methylation in regulating viral replication.

    EM connectomics reveals axonal target variation in a sequence-generating network

    Jörgen Kornfeld et al.
    Combining light microscopy and electron microscopy uncovered patterns of neural connectivity in a zebra finch forebrain region capable of generating song-related sequential activity, contributing to our understanding of the neural circuitry that underlies skilled motor performance.

    Proximal clustering between BK and CaV1.3 channels promotes functional coupling and BK channel activation at low voltage

    Oscar Vivas et al.
    Super-resolution imaging reveals a novel multi-channel arrangement that explains how big potassium (BK) channel activation closely tracks the opening of low-voltage-activated L-type calcium channels.

    Live calcium and mitochondrial imaging in the enteric nervous system of Parkinson patients and controls

    An-Sofie Desmet et al.
    In contrast to previous post-mortem or fixed tissue histochemical reports, live calcium and mitochondrial imaging data suggest that the enteric nervous system is not generally affected in Parkinson's disease patients.
