    The ion channel ppk301 controls freshwater egg-laying in the mosquito Aedes aegypti

    Benjamin J Matthews et al.
    The ion channel ppk301 is required for the evaluation of water purity during egg-laying, which promotes offspring survival in the arboviral vector mosquito Aedes aegypti.

    Sweet neurons inhibit texture discrimination by signaling TMC-expressing mechanosensitive neurons in Drosophila

    Shun-Fan Wu et al.
    Drosophila use distinct sensory mechanisms to detect and integrate the same tactile and taste information in two decision-making tasks that serve two different purposes.

    Mesolimbic dopamine projections mediate cue-motivated reward seeking but not reward retrieval in rats

    Briac Halbout et al.
    Inhibiting ventral tegmental dopamine neurons, or their inputs to nucleus accumbens, disrupts cue-motivated reward seeking in a manner that depends on the microstructure of behavior.

    GABA neurons in the ventral tegmental area regulate non-rapid eye movement sleep in mice

    Srikanta Chowdhury et al.
    Functional identification of GABAergic neurons in the ventral tegmental area as a important neuronal subpopulation regulating non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep in mice.

    Dissociating orexin-dependent and -independent functions of orexin neurons using novel Orexin-Flp knock-in mice

    Srikanta Chowdhury et al.
    Subtraction analysis using novel Orexin-Flp mice isolated physiological importance of orexin peptides.

    Context-dependent signaling of coincident auditory and visual events in primary visual cortex

    Thomas Deneux et al.
    Abrupt sounds boost coincident visual cortex responses which could help localization of sudden audio-visual events.

    Ventral hippocampal projections to the medial prefrontal cortex regulate social memory

    Mary L Phillips et al.
    Input from the ventral hippocampus to the medial prefrontal cortex regulates social memory in wild type mice and atypically-strengthened input causes social memory dysfunction in Rett syndrome mice.
    1. Neuroscience

    Increased anxiety and decreased sociability induced by paternal deprivation involve the PVN-PrL OTergic pathway

    Zhixiong He et al.
    The PVN-mPFC OT circuit is an important target for the treatment of disorders related to early adverse experiences.

    Sustained NPY signaling enables AgRP neurons to drive feeding

    Yiming Chen et al.
    A specific neuropeptide is responsible for the ability of AgRP neurons to generate long-lasting hunger.

    Sensory perception drives food avoidance through excitatory basal forebrain circuits

    Jay M Patel et al.
    Glutamatergic projection neurons downstream of cholinergic cells in the basal forebrain potently affect feeding behavior by modulating downstream reward and aversion circuits.
