    P1 interneurons promote a persistent internal state that enhances inter-male aggression in Drosophila

    Eric D Hoopfer et al.
    A sexually dimorphic circuit node controls a persistent, internal state that promotes fighting and mating in Drosophila, revealing parallels with mammalian systems suggestive of a conserved circuit "motif" controlling social behaviors.

    Genetic variation in offspring indirectly influences the quality of maternal behaviour in mice

    David George Ashbrook et al.
    A cross-fostered population of mice reveals loci on offspring chromosomes 5 and 7 that modify the behaviour of their mothers, along with evidence of coadaptation between offspring and parental traits.

    BDNF-TrkB signaling in oxytocin neurons contributes to maternal behavior

    Kristen R Maynard et al.
    Brain-derived neurotrophic factor signaling plays a causal role in female-typical social behavior and modulates oxytocin neuron gene expression.

    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.

    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.

    Freezing suppression by oxytocin in central amygdala allows alternate defensive behaviours and mother-pup interactions

    Elizabeth Rickenbacher et al.
    Oxytocin in the amygdala suppresses freezing of mothers when exposed to a threat in the presence of their offspring, allowing for pup protection and transmission of information about danger from mothers to pups.

    Internal states drive nutrient homeostasis by modulating exploration-exploitation trade-off

    Verónica María Corrales-Carvajal et al.
    A quantitative video tracking analysis reveals that to gain the nutrients they need, flies change their decisions to exploit foods with different nutrient contents and explore the environment according to their internal amino acid and reproductive states.

    Inferring eye position from populations of lateral intraparietal neurons

    Arnulf BA Graf, Richard A Andersen
    An area of visual-motor cortex called the lateral intraparietal area encodes eye position signals that support visually-guided behaviors and image stabilization.

    A causal role for right temporo-parietal junction in signaling moral conflict

    Ignacio Obeso et al.
    Disrupting the right temporo-parietal junction did not change the general motivation to give or adapt behavior to social reputation cues, but specifically reduced the impact of moral-material conflict.

    The hierarchical organization of the lateral prefrontal cortex

    Derek Evan Nee, Mark D'Esposito
    Areas in the middle of the lateral prefrontal cortex select behaviors by taking into account both current and future needs.
