    Movement maintains forebrain neurogenesis via peripheral neural feedback in larval zebrafish

    Zachary Jonas Hall, Vincent Tropepe
    Early postembryonic bodily movement sends neural feedback through dorsal root ganglia to the forebrain in order to regulate the rate of neurogenesis and subsequent brain growth.

    Voltage-gated Na+ currents in human dorsal root ganglion neurons

    Xiulin Zhang et al.
    Human sensory neurons may not only bridge a critical gap between drug discovery and clinical trials, but force a re-evaluation of basic assumptions about the mechanisms controlling primary afferent excitability.

    The cellular basis of mechanosensory Merkel-cell innervation during development

    Blair A Jenkins et al.
    Touch-sensitive neurons are patterned during mammalian skin development by placode-derived keratinocytes and Bone Morphogenetic Protein signaling.

    Formation of retinal direction-selective circuitry initiated by starburst amacrine cell homotypic contact

    Thomas A Ray et al.
    Selective synapse formation in a retinal motion-sensitive circuit is orchestrated by starburst amacrine cells, which use homotypic interactions to initiate formation of a dendritic scaffold that recruits projections from circuit partners.

    Output variability across animals and levels in a motor system

    Angela Wenning et al.
    Population output variability in a motor control system varies across levels (CPG, motor neurons, muscles) and can be ascribed to life history differences among animals and in some cases to differences between bilaterally homologous elements.

    Neurogliaform cortical interneurons derive from cells in the preoptic area

    Mathieu Niquille et al.
    In vivo genetic lineage-tracing reveals the developmental trajectory of neurogliaform cells, the main effectors of a powerful inhibitory motif in the neocortex.

    Mutations in L-type amino acid transporter-2 support SLC7A8 as a novel gene involved in age-related hearing loss

    Meritxell Espino Guarch et al.
    SLC7A8 a neutral amino acid transporter has a key role in the maintenance of hearing during aging and its absence causes early onset of hearing loss.

    A gene-specific T2A-GAL4 library for Drosophila

    Pei-Tseng Lee et al.
    A library of a thousand gene-specific intronic GAL4 insertions was generated, which caused a severe loss of function, permitted the assessing of gene expression, allowed the rescue of mutated gene with UAS-cDNA constructs, and provided a tool for the reversion of mutant phenotypes in specific cells or tissues.
