    Co-targeting myelin inhibitors and CSPGs markedly enhances regeneration of GDNF-stimulated, but not conditioning-lesioned, sensory axons into the spinal cord

    Jinbin Zhai et al.
    Myelin-associated inhibitors and chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans are not the primary mechanism stopping sensory axons regenerating into the spinal cord, although their removal can markedly enhance regeneration when combined with an intervention that elevates axon growth capacity sufficiently robustly.

    Phagocytic glia are obligatory intermediates in transmission of mutant huntingtin aggregates across neuronal synapses

    Kirby M Donnelly et al.
    Prion-like transfer of mutant huntingtin aggregates from presynaptic to postsynaptic neurons is enhanced by neuronal silencing and requires passage through the cytoplasm of Draper-expressing phagocytic glia in adult Drosophila brains.

    Integration of Tmc1/2 into the mechanotransduction complex in zebrafish hair cells is regulated by Transmembrane O-methyltransferase (Tomt)

    Timothy Erickson et al.
    A zebrafish model for a particular form of human deafness (DFNB63) changes our view of this disease by revealing a defect in the localization of Transmembrane channel-like proteins that are essential for mechanotransduction in sensory cells.

    Gradient-reading and mechano-effector machinery for netrin-1-induced axon guidance

    Kentarou Baba et al.
    Shootin1a, through its spatially regulated phosphorylation within growth cones, mediates the gradient reading and mechanoresponse for netrin-1-induced axon guidance.

    Deciphering caveolar functions by syndapin III KO-mediated impairment of caveolar invagination

    Eric Seemann et al.
    Mice lacking the membrane-shaping protein syndapin III show severe reduction of caveolae reminiscent of human caveolinopathies but maintain plasma membrane-associated caveolar coats proteins and thereby unveil physiological impairments associated with lack of invaginated caveolae.

    Malaria parasite LIMP protein regulates sporozoite gliding motility and infectivity in mosquito and mammalian hosts

    Jorge M Santos et al.
    A small surface protein regulates gliding motility and host cell invasion by the sporozoite stage of the malaria parasite.

    A serial multiplex immunogold labeling method for identifying peptidergic neurons in connectomes

    Réza Shahidi et al.
    A new technique called ‘siGOLD’ allows neural circuits to be mapped using a combination of antibody labeling and electron microscopy.

    Improving drug discovery using image-based multiparametric analysis of the epigenetic landscape

    Chen Farhy et al.
    A novel phenotypic screening platform based on immunofluorescent imaging of histone modifications enables accurate identification of cell fates and environmental perturbations.

    Structural development and dorsoventral maturation of the medial entorhinal cortex

    Saikat Ray, Michael Brecht
    The medial entorhinal cortex is important for spatial memory formation and matures from dorsal, where smaller spatial-scales are represented, to ventral, where larger spatial-scales are represented.

    Diverse inhibitory projections from the cerebellar interposed nucleus

    Elena N Judd et al.
    Inhibitory cerebellar feedback to the inferior olive is central to computational models of learning, but novel targets of these neurons identified here expand their potential roles.
