    Nociceptive interneurons control modular motor pathways to promote escape behavior in Drosophila

    Anita Burgos et al.
    A class of interneuron is identified that promotes escape behavior downstream of nociceptor inputs via connections to nociceptive integrator and premotor networks.

    Aversive stimuli drive hypothalamus-to-habenula excitation to promote escape behavior

    Salvatore Lecca et al.
    Glutamatergic signaling from the lateral hypothalamus instructs lateral habenular neurons for encoding aversive external stimuli to subsequently guide escape behaviours.

    Correcting for physical distortions in visual stimuli improves reproducibility in zebrafish neuroscience

    Timothy W Dunn, James E Fitzgerald
    Computational analyses quantitatively account for optical refraction at air-water interfaces to enable visual neuroscientists to present distortion-free stimuli to underwater animals.

    Neural Circuits: Turning away from danger

    Jun Liu, Monika Scholz
    The flexible escape behavior exhibited by C. elegans in response to threats relies on a combination of feedback and feedforward circuits.

    A cross-modality enhancement of defensive flight via parvalbumin neurons in zona incerta

    Xiyue Wang et al.
    Parvalbumin positive GABAergic neurons in the ventral zona incerta receive input from somatosensory cortex and enhance sound-induced flight behavior, which underlies a cross-modality facilitation of defensive behavior by somatosensory input.

    Characterizing a psychiatric symptom dimension related to deficits in goal-directed control

    Claire M Gillan et al.
    A dimensional approach to psychiatry demonstrates the specificity and generalizability of a neurocognitive marker of compulsive behavior and intrusive thought via large-scale online testing.

    Vertex sliding drives intercalation by radial coupling of adhesion and actomyosin networks during Drosophila germband extension

    Timothy E Vanderleest et al.
    Tricellular vertices possess sliding behaviors that harness radial forces and drive cell shape changes and intercalation in an epithelial tissue.

    The large-scale organization of shape processing in the ventral and dorsal pathways

    Erez Freud et al.
    Functional neuroimaging reveals sensitivity to shape information and correlation between brain activation and perceptual behaviour in both dorsal and ventral visual pathways, thereby challenging the strict binary distinctions between the two pathways.

    A spiral attractor network drives rhythmic locomotion

    Angela M Bruno et al.
    The neural population of the Aplysia's pedal ganglion are a low-dimensional spiral attractor, and the parameters of the attractor directly define the properties of the Aplysia's escape locomotion behaviour.

    Concerted action of neuroepithelial basal shrinkage and active epithelial migration ensures efficient optic cup morphogenesis

    Jaydeep Sidhaye, Caren Norden
    Cellular and tissue level analysis reveals how different cell behaviors involving dynamics of the basal domain cooperate in space and time to shape an epithelial organ.
