    Inverse regulation of Vibrio cholerae biofilm dispersal by polyamine signals

    Andrew A Bridges, Bonnie L Bassler
    The global pathogen Vibrio cholerae monitors environmental polyamines to garner information about numbers of ‘self’ versus ‘other’ in the vicinity, and in response, to remain or disperse from biofilms.

    Rapid recycling of glutamate transporters on the astroglial surface

    Piotr Michaluk et al.
    Rapid membrane turnover is the main 'redeployment' route for the immobile fraction of surface-expressed astroglial glutamate transporters that confine excitatory transmission to the synaptic cleft.

    Glia actively sculpt sensory neurons by controlled phagocytosis to tune animal behavior

    Stephan Raiders et al.
    A peripheral sense-organ glia actively engulfs fragments of a sensory neuron ending to modify neuron shape and associated animal sensory behavior in Caenorhabditis elegans..

    Neural effects of propofol-induced unconsciousness and its reversal using thalamic stimulation

    André M Bastos et al.
    Understanding how general anesthesia changes neural dynamics in the cortex and thalamus can lead to its safer use and shed light on the nature of consciousness.

    Methionine restriction breaks obligatory coupling of cell proliferation and death by an oncogene Src in Drosophila

    Hiroshi Nishida et al.
    Src, an oncogene, promotes both cell proliferation and cell death simultaneously, which can be regulated by dietary methionine.

    An open-source device for measuring food intake and operant behavior in rodent home-cages

    Bridget A Matikainen-Ankney et al.
    An open-source behavioral platform allows for operant, feeding, and circadian experiments in rodent home-cages.

    MicroRNAs mediate precise control of spinal interneuron populations to exert delicate sensory-to-motor outputs

    Shih-Hsin Chang et al.
    The miR-34/449 family is abundantly expressed in the central nervous system, and fine-tunes optimal numbers of spinal interneurons to ensure sensory-motor circuit outputs.
