A distinctive recurrent network motif in the Drosophila central brain enables neurons that encode angular velocity to shift population activity in compass neurons, thereby updating their heading representation whenever the fly turns.
During learning, one climbing fiber input instructs plasticity that is expressed in the simple-spike responses of cerebellar Purkinje cells, and causes neural learning that may inhibit future climbing fiber instructions.
A parallel neuronal network architecture ensures control of basic feeding reflex circuits via integration of crossmodal sensory information to filter multiple biological events and enhance meaningful behavioral choice.
Genome-wide integration of transcriptome, accessible chromatin, and DNA methylome data from vascular endothelial cells lays the foundation for understanding the gene regulatory circuits that generate organ-specific vascular specialization.
A hub in the rostral anterior cingulate cortex receives unusually high and functionally diverse inputs, providing a biological interface between motivation, incentive based learning, and decision making.
