    Episode 21: June 2015

    In this episode we hear about tinnitus and hyperacusis, salamanders, chemical harpoons, and the role of ultrasound and song in the mating rituals of mice and flies.
    1. Neuroscience

    Astrocyte morphogenesis is dependent on BDNF signaling via astrocytic TrkB.T1

    Leanne M Holt et al.
    Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)/TrkB.T1 signaling contributes to astrocyte morphological maturation, with implications for neuronal synaptogenesis and function and astrocyte functional maturation.

    A multicellular rosette-mediated collective dendrite extension

    Li Fan et al.
    Migrating skin carries the amphid rosette vertex anteriorly to extrude and position dendrites.
    1. Neuroscience

    PARIS, an optogenetic method for functionally mapping gap junctions

    Ling Wu et al.
    As the first fully genetically encoded method, PARIS allows cell-specific, long-term, repeated measurements of gap junctional coupling with high spatiotemporal resolution, facilitating its study in both health and disease.
    1. Neuroscience

    Spatial cell firing during virtual navigation of open arenas by head-restrained mice

    Guifen Chen et al.
    A mouse virtual reality system is presented which allows normal spatial behavior and place, grid and head-direction cell firing patterns in 2-D arenas, and is compatible with electrophysiology and multi-photon imaging.
    1. Neuroscience

    Motor thalamus supports striatum-driven reinforcement

    Arnaud L Lalive et al.
    While the basal ganglia have long been thought to mediate learning through dopamine-dependent striatal plasticity, their regulation of motor thalamus plays an unexpected and critical role in reinforcement.
    1. Neuroscience

    Cortex-wide BOLD fMRI activity reflects locally-recorded slow oscillation-associated calcium waves

    Miriam Schwalm et al.
    Locally recorded calcium events related to slow wave activity show a global cortical fMRI BOLD correlate, establishing a direct relation between a basic neurophysiological signal and the macroscopic perspective of pre-clinical fMRI.
    1. Neuroscience

    Network-wide reorganization of procedural memory during NREM sleep revealed by fMRI

    Shahabeddin Vahdat et al.
    Non-REM sleep is essential in the restoration of initial motor memory trace and gradual reorganization of newly-learned information underlying human procedural memory consolidation.
    1. Neuroscience

    Sloppy morphological tuning in identified neurons of the crustacean stomatogastric ganglion

    Adriane G Otopalik et al.
    Reliable neuronal physiology can arise from variable and inefficient morphologies.
    1. Neuroscience

    Hippocampal pattern completion is linked to gamma power increases and alpha power decreases during recollection

    Bernhard P Staresina et al.
    Direct recordings from the human hippocampus reveal the neural mechanisms that orchestrate recollection of past experiences.
