    Feed-forward recruitment of electrical synapses enhances synchronous spiking in the mouse cerebellar cortex

    Andreas Hoehne et al.
    Transient recruitment of electrical synapses mediates precisely timed excitation and inhibition to enhance synchronized control of cerebellar cortical output.

    A genetic basis for molecular asymmetry at vertebrate electrical synapses

    Adam C Miller et al.
    Electrical synapses are neuronal, gap-junction-based connections found throughout the nervous system that, in the escape circuit of zebrafish, are composed of molecularly distinct pre- and postsynaptic junction forming proteins that are required for behavioral performance.

    Electrical synaptic transmission requires a postsynaptic scaffolding protein

    Abagael M Lasseigne et al.
    A postsynaptic, intracellular, scaffolding protein is necessary to build neuronal gap junctions, revealing an unanticipated complexity of molecular and functional organization of electrical synapses.

    Selectivity to approaching motion in retinal inputs to the dorsal visual pathway

    Todd R Appleby, Michael B Manookin
    Cells in the primate retina show unexpected sensitivity to approaching motion and optical flow.
    1. Neuroscience

    Ultrastructural comparison of dendritic spine morphology preserved with cryo and chemical fixation

    Hiromi Tamada et al.
    Cryo preservation of brain tissue reveals dendritic spines with thinner necks compared to those prepared with chemical fixation.
    1. Neuroscience

    Flexible motor sequence generation during stereotyped escape responses

    Yuan Wang et al.
    Time-ordered and flexible motor sequences in C.elegans are generated by combining an excitatory feedforward coupling and mutual inhibitions between neurons in different functional modules.
    1. Neuroscience

    Cerebellar and vestibular nuclear synapses in the inferior olive have distinct release kinetics and neurotransmitters

    Josef Turecek, Wade G Regehr
    Inhibition from the cerebellar nuclei to the inferior olive is exclusively asynchronous and GABAergic, whereas the vestibular nuclei provide rapid synchronous inhibition mediated by mixed GABA and glycinergic synapses.
    1. Neuroscience

    Extracellular space preservation aids the connectomic analysis of neural circuits

    Marta Pallotto et al.
    Automated segmentation of neurons and identification of synapses in electron micrographs is significantly improved by using simple modifications to chemical fixation protocols that preserve extracellular space in the brain.
    1. Neuroscience

    Electrical and Ca2+ signaling in dendritic spines of substantia nigra dopaminergic neurons

    Travis A Hage et al.
    Dopaminergic cells uniquely receive input from a roughly equal mixture of synapses on dendritic spines and synapses formed directly on dendrites.
    1. Neuroscience

    Cross-synaptic synchrony and transmission of signal and noise across the mouse retina

    William N Grimes et al.
    Cells within the retina synchronize transmitter release across their output synapses in the dark, reducing the impact of noise generated at these synapses and allowing light-dependent signals to be transmitted with minimal added synaptic noise.
