    Neurogenetic dissection of the Drosophila lateral horn reveals major outputs, diverse behavioural functions, and interactions with the mushroom body

    Michael-John Dolan et al.
    The generation and systematic characterisation of driver lines labelling a large number of neurons in the Drosophila innate olfactory processing centre bridges electron microscopy neuronal reconstructions, circuits and behaviour.

    Innate Behavior: Flies spring a surprise

    Johanna M Kobler, Ilona C Grunwald Kadow
    A combination of genetic, anatomical and physiological techniques has revealed that the lateral horn, a region of the brain involved in olfaction in flies, has many more types of neurons than expected.

    1. Neuroscience

    Functional and anatomical specificity in a higher olfactory centre

    Shahar Frechter et al.
    The Drosophila lateral horn, a higher olfactory brain area, contains >165 genetically defined cell types with stereotyped odour responses across animals and improved odor categorisation compared with their inputs.

    Decoding odor quality and intensity in the Drosophila brain

    Antonia Strutz et al.
    The lateral horn can be classified into three functional odor response domains that decode opposing hedonic valences and odor intensity.

    Young adult born neurons enhance hippocampal dependent performance via influences on bilateral networks

    Jia-Min Zhuo et al.
    Adult neurogenesis, although happening at a slow rate in the adult brain, plays an important role in learning and memory and has the ability to powerfully modulate large scale neural networks.

    Temporally specific engagement of distinct neuronal circuits regulating olfactory habituation in Drosophila

    Ourania Semelidou et al.
    Habituation to brief olfactory stimulation is biphasic and mediated by distinct neuronal circuits where an initial latency phase is rapidly followed by stimulus devaluation signifying behavioral habituation in Drosophila.

    Polygenic Scores: It is time to get real when trying to predict educational performance

    Cecile Janssens
    A study of 3,500 children in the UK shows that data on socioeconomic background and previous educational achievements can better predict how students will perform at school than genetic data.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: The unlimited potential of the great pond snail, Lymnaea stagnalis

    István Fodor et al.
    The great pond snail is a multipurpose model organism and a contemporary choice for addressing a wide range of biological questions, problems and phenomena in the laboratory and the field.

    Point of View: Is cell size a spandrel?

    Ariel Amir
    Analysis of experiments on bacteria suggests that the dependence of cell size on growth rate is not an adaptation but a causal consequence of a regulatory mechanism that controls DNA replication.
  1. Point of View: Science, art, society and Klimt’s University of Vienna paintings

    Alberto E Pereda
    A set of paintings by Gustav Klimt highlights ongoing tensions in the relationships between art, science and society.
