    Gastrulation: May the force be with you

    Shinuo Weng, John B Wallingford
    Understanding the coordination of the forces generated in embryos by two processes, convergent extension and convergent thickening, is key to understanding how a hollow sphere of cells develops into an elongated embryo.

    Large, long range tensile forces drive convergence during Xenopus blastopore closure and body axis elongation

    David R Shook et al.
    Blastopore closure in Xenopus is driven by two morphogenic mechanisms that have strongly context dependent effects on tissue movement and that generate tensile force across tissues: convergent extension, as expected, and, unexpectedly, convergent thickening.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: An organismal perspective on C. intestinalis development, origins and diversification

    Matthew J Kourakis, William C Smith
    The life cycle and morphology of the sea squirt Ciona intestinalis shed light on vertebrate evolution.

    Formation of polarity convergences underlying shoot outgrowths

    Katie Abley et al.
    Models that generate tandem alignments of cell polarities are more readily compatible with the formation of PIN1 polarity patterns in plant leaf buds than the most widely accepted “up-the-gradient” model.

    Conjunction of factors triggering waves of seasonal influenza

    Ishanu Chattopadhyay et al.
    Three complementary computational approaches reveal a set of putative causes of initiation of pan-USA waves of influenza.

    Beta band oscillations in motor cortex reflect neural population signals that delay movement onset

    Preeya Khanna, Jose M Carmena
    Using a sequential neurofeedback-arm reaching task, a new link is established among population neural activity patterns, generation of beta oscillations, and motor behavior changes.

    Conserved and divergent development of brainstem vestibular and auditory nuclei

    Marcela Lipovsek, Richard JT Wingate
    The development of brainstem auditory nuclei echoes the divergent evolutionary history of amniote auditory systems.

    Selective increases in inter-individual variability in response to environmental enrichment in female mice

    Julia C Körholz et al.
    The classical experimental paradigm of "enriched environments" is repositioned as a tool to address the question of how behavioral activity and the environment contribute to specific differences between individuals.

    Functionally asymmetric motor neurons contribute to coordinating locomotion of Caenorhabditis elegans

    Oleg Tolstenkov et al.
    The 'missing' class of Caenorhabditis elegans excitatory motor neurons, AS, contribute to propagation and coordination of body waves, integrating information from, and feeding back to premotor interneurons byelectrical signaling.

    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.
