    Episode 21: June 2015

    In this episode we hear about tinnitus and hyperacusis, salamanders, chemical harpoons, and the role of ultrasound and song in the mating rituals of mice and flies.

    Episode 9: February 2014

    In this episode we learn more about sleep, super Spy chaperones, swimming bacteria, orphan genes and the neuroscience of birdsong.
  4. Group of raised hands

    Episode 61: October 2019

    In this episode we hear about parents passing on new mutations, a genetic mystery 100 years in the making, the experiences of early-career group leaders, and more.
  5. Episode 45: February 2018

    In this episode, we hear about disease control in insects, placental development, post-traumatic stress disorder, the mission to create a human cell atlas and how crickets amplify their song.
    1. Neuroscience

    Kainate receptors regulate development of glutamatergic synaptic circuitry in the rodent amygdala

    Maria Ryazantseva et al.
    Glutamatergic projections from basolateral to central amygdala, implicated in neuropsychiatric disorders, develop rapidly during early postnatal period and their development is modulated via endogenously active kainate receptors.
    1. Neuroscience

    mTORC1 in the orbitofrontal cortex promotes habitual alcohol seeking

    Nadege Morisot et al.
    In the orbitofrontal cortex, mTORC1, a multiprotein complex centered around the kinase mTOR, contributes to the development and/or maintenance of habitual alcohol seeking.
    1. Developmental Biology

    Lin28a/let-7 pathway modulates the Hox code via Polycomb regulation during axial patterning in vertebrates

    Tempei Sato et al.
    Genetic analyses reveal that the loss of Lin28a causes axial shortening with mild skeletal transformations via decreased PRC1 at Hox genes, establishing a new pathway in the “Hox code.”.
    1. Neuroscience

    Inhibition stabilization is a widespread property of cortical networks

    Alessandro Sanzeni et al.
    The strongly coupled theoretical regime describes the function of mouse sensory and motor cortical areas.
    1. Neuroscience

    Visually-updated hand state estimates modulate the proprioceptive reflex independently of motor task requirements

    Sho Ito, Hiroaki Gomi
    Distortion and elimination of limb visual feedback affects low-level stretch reflex control, indicating the involvement of a high-level and multimodal representation of the limb state in orchestrating hierarchical sensorimotor control.
