    The laminar organization of the Drosophila ellipsoid body is semaphorin-dependent and prevents the formation of ectopic synaptic connections

    Xiaojun Xie et al.
    The organization of layered/laminated axon projections in specific regions of the fruitfly central brain is regulated by short-range repulsive guidance and is critical for local inhibitory circuit formation and function.

    Sleep-promoting effects of threonine link amino acid metabolism in Drosophila neuron to GABAergic control of sleep drive

    Yoonhee Ki, Chunghun Lim
    Threonine promotes sleep via down-regulation of metabotropic GABA transmission in the ellipsoid body R2 neurons that generate homeostatic sleep drive in Drosophila.

    The head direction circuit of two insect species

    Ioannis Pisokas et al.
    Two evolutionary distant insect species share a common head direction circuit with subtle differences in neuronal morphologies that result in distinct circuit dynamics adapted to each species’ ecology.

    Encoding and control of orientation to airflow by a set of Drosophila fan-shaped body neurons

    Timothy A Currier et al.
    Electrophysiology identifies a population of fan-shaped body neurons that encode airflow in two directions relative to the fly midline and whose silencing disrupts proper orientation to airflow.

    Building a functional connectome of the Drosophila central complex

    Romain Franconville et al.
    The central complex, a highly conserved insect brain region important for navigation, is characterized by a high degree of recurrence and a sparseness of output pathways.

    Angular velocity integration in a fly heading circuit

    Daniel Turner-Evans et al.
    A distinctive recurrent network motif in the Drosophila central brain enables neurons that encode angular velocity to shift population activity in compass neurons, thereby updating their heading representation whenever the fly turns.

    Drep-2 is a novel synaptic protein important for learning and memory

    Till F M Andlauer et al.
    Drep-2 is the first representative of the evolutionary conserved CIDE-N protein family found at synapses and is required for associative learning by functionally intersecting with metabotropic signaling.

    The interplay of stiffness and force anisotropies drives embryo elongation

    Thanh Thi Kim Vuong-Brender et al.
    Elongation of C. elegans embryos requires stiffness and force to be specifically oriented in a coordinated manner in different cells.

    Maturation of a central brain flight circuit in Drosophila requires Fz2/Ca2+ signaling

    Tarjani Agrawal, Gaiti Hasan
    Gene knockdown experiments in fruit fly pupae reveal the role of the signaling molecule 'dFrizzled2' in the development of a neural circuit that helps insects to fly continuously for extended periods.

    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.
