    Enhanced FIB-SEM systems for large-volume 3D imaging

    C Shan Xu et al.
    Complete neuronal circuits can be reconstructed, and whole eukaryotic cells imaged, at less than 10 nm isotropic resolution.

    MagC, magnetic collection of ultrathin sections for volumetric correlative light and electron microscopy

    Thomas Templier
    The augmentation of resin-embedded sample blocks with magnetic resin allows remote actuation of ultrathin sections and deposition at high packing density onto silicon wafers for correlative light and electron microscopy.

    Synaptic and peptidergic connectome of a neurosecretory center in the annelid brain

    Elizabeth A Williams et al.
    A combination of electron microscopic reconstruction and the analysis of single cell transcriptome data is used to reconstruct synaptic and peptidergic signaling networks in a neurosecretory centre.

    The neural basis for a persistent internal state in Drosophila females

    David Deutsch et al.
    A set of sexually dimorphic neurons in female flies is part of a recurrent neural network and drives minutes-long persistent neural activity and persistent social behaviors.

    An expanding manifold in transmodal regions characterizes adolescent reconfiguration of structural connectome organization

    Bo-yong Park et al.
    Manifold learning of longitudinal brain network data provides novel insights into adolescent structural connectome maturation, and how multiple scales of cortical and subcortical organization interact in typical neurodevelopment.

    Comparisons between the ON- and OFF-edge motion pathways in the Drosophila brain

    Kazunori Shinomiya et al.
    A complete connectome of the ON and OFF motion pathways of the Drosophila optic lobe is acquired using three-dimensional EM methods, and the similarities and differences of the two pathways are uncovered.

    Synaptic transmission parallels neuromodulation in a central food-intake circuit

    Philipp Schlegel et al.
    Connectomic analysis demonstrates that a brain circuit, that may be conserved between flies and mammals, uses both fast synaptic transmission as well as peptidergic neuromodulation to connect chemosensory and endocrine systems.

    A connectome and analysis of the adult Drosophila central brain

    Louis K Scheffer et al.
    New reconstruction methods are used to create a publicly available dense reconstruction of the neurons and chemical synapses of central brain of Drosophila, with analysis of its graph properties.

    The comprehensive connectome of a neural substrate for ‘ON’ motion detection in Drosophila

    Shin-ya Takemura et al.
    Connectomic analysis identifies the complex circuits of a visual motion-sensing neuron that qualify them to generate direction-selective motion sensing signals using both Hassenstein-Reichardt and Barlow-Levick models.

    Spatial readout of visual looming in the central brain of Drosophila

    Mai M Morimoto et al.
    In the Drosophila central brain, synaptic connectivity extracts visual-spatial information from the axons of looming sensitive LC6 neurons that terminate in a glomerulus with minimal retinotopy.
