    An essential role of acetylcholine-glutamate synergy at habenular synapses in nicotine dependence

    Silke Frahm et al.
    Local elimination of acetylcholine synthesis in habenular neurons demonstrates a key role for vesicular synergy and neurotransmitter co-release in nicotine dependence.

    Valence-encoding in the lateral habenula arises from the entopeduncular region

    Hao Li et al.
    Lateral habenula neurons participate in motivated behavior via their activation by negative affective stimuli, a major source of which arises from the rostral entopeduncular nucleus.

    Anatomical and single-cell transcriptional profiling of the murine habenular complex

    Michael L Wallace et al.
    Single-cell transcriptional profiling reveals distinct neuronal subtypes of the lateral habenula differentially target downstream neuronal subtypes in the ventral tegmental area and dorsal raphe nucleus.

    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.

    Sox1a mediates the ability of the parapineal to impart habenular left-right asymmetry

    Ingrid Lekk et al.
    The sox1a gene is required for a small group on neurons on the left side of the brain to influence the generation and left-sided character of their future synaptic partners.

    Learning shapes the aversion and reward responses of lateral habenula neurons

    Daqing Wang et al.
    Neurons in the lateral habenula are activated by pain, bitterness and social defeat, and their responses are dynamically shaped by learning, suggesting a role in experience-dependent selection of behavioral actions to stressors.

    Experience, circuit dynamics, and forebrain recruitment in larval zebrafish prey capture

    Claire S Oldfield et al.
    Experience strengthens hunting in larval zebrafish by recruiting the forebrain to increase the prey-evoked activity in visual areas and trigger motor activity and prey capture.

    Different neuronal populations mediate inflammatory pain analgesia by exogenous and endogenous opioids

    Xin-Yan Zhang et al.
    Exogenous opioid analgesia is mediated by MORs expressed in glutamatergic neurons, whereas endogenous opioid analgesia is mediated by MORs expressed in GABAergic neurons.

    Large-scale cell-type-specific imaging of protein synthesis in a vertebrate brain

    Or David Shahar, Erin Margaret Schuman
    The development of a transgenic zebrafish allows for cell-type-specific labeling of neuronal protein synthesis, enabling brain-wide visualization and quantification of protein synthesis and demonstrating region-specific increases following elevated brain activity.

    Autophagy linked FYVE (Alfy/WDFY3) is required for establishing neuronal connectivity in the mammalian brain

    Joanna M Dragich et al.
    Loss of function of the selective autophagy adaptor protein Alfy/Wdfy3 leads to profound wiring defects from the forebrain through to the spinal cord, highlighting the growing importance for macroautophagy in the developing brain.
