    A common directional tuning mechanism of Drosophila motion-sensing neurons in the ON and in the OFF pathway

    Juergen Haag et al.
    A common mechanism for computation of direction selectivity in the ON and OFF channel is demonstrated.

    Cerebellar re-encoding of self-generated head movements

    Guillaume P Dugué et al.
    The cerebellum encodes self-generated head rotations in a head posture-dependent manner, providing in particular a representation of how the head rotates about axes referenced relative to gravity.

    Local processing in neurites of VGluT3-expressing amacrine cells differentially organizes visual information

    Jen-Chun Hsiang et al.
    Neurite arbors of VGluT3-expressing amacrine cells (VG3-ACs) process visual information locally uniformly detecting object motion while varying in contrast preferences; and in spite of extensive overlap between arbors of neighboring cells population activity in the VG3-AC plexus encodes stimulus positions with subcellular precision.

    Stimulus-dependent recruitment of lateral inhibition underlies retinal direction selectivity

    Qiang Chen et al.
    Synapse-specific genetic manipulations show that distinct GABAergic inputs are differentially recruited to encode motion direction in the retina in a stimulus-dependent manner.

    Non-classical amine recognition evolved in a large clade of olfactory receptors

    Qian Li et al.
    Fish trace amine-associated receptors evolved a novel structural motif that enables the detection of chemically diverse amine odors in a non-canonical 'inverted' orientation.

    Protocadherin-dependent dendritic self-avoidance regulates neural connectivity and circuit function

    Dimitar Kostadinov, Joshua R Sanes
    Patterning of dendrites by protocadherin-dependent self-avoidance and self/non-self discrimination is required for proper function of a retinal circuit that computes the direction of motion.

    Dynamic range adaptation in primary motor cortical populations

    Robert G Rasmussen et al.
    Motor neurons adjust their sensitivity to direction of movement in a manner analogous to how neurons in the visual system adjust their sensitivity to light.
    1. Neuroscience

    Complementary mechanisms create direction selectivity in the fly

    Juergen Haag et al.
    Uniting two principles that have been thought of being mutually exclusive in the past can explain how neurons become sensitive to the direction of motion.

    Mediodorsal thalamus is required for discrete phases of goal-directed behavior in macaques

    Evan Wicker et al.
    Transient suppression of activity in the macaque mediodorsal thalamus impairs adjustment of secondary reinforcer values and disrupts appropriate action selection in a reinforcer devaluation task; this profile is distinct from that of amygdala or subregions of orbitofrontal cortex.

    Motion along the mental number line reveals shared representations for numerosity and space

    Caspar M Schwiedrzik et al.
    Looking at visual motion affects perception of nonsymbolic numerosity in a direction-specific way, indicating that motion and number are computed by the same neurons.
