    Episode 29: May 2016

    In this episode we hear about parasitic worms, dog tumours, epilepsy, DNA sequencing classes and social behaviour in mice.
  2. Episode 60: September 2019

    In this episode we hear about how sex makes female bees go blind, the cost of unnecessary medical procedures, how birds can fly over the Himalayas, an eLife author's trip to space and more.

    Nodal β spectrins are required to maintain Na+ channel clustering and axon integrity

    Cheng-Hsin Liu et al.
    A combination of sensory-neuron specific conditional knockout mice reveal nodal beta spectrins are required to maintain, but not assemble, nodes of Ranvier.

    Movement maintains forebrain neurogenesis via peripheral neural feedback in larval zebrafish

    Zachary Jonas Hall, Vincent Tropepe
    Early postembryonic bodily movement sends neural feedback through dorsal root ganglia to the forebrain in order to regulate the rate of neurogenesis and subsequent brain growth.

    Synaptic mechanisms underlying modulation of locomotor-related motoneuron output by premotor cholinergic interneurons

    Filipe Nascimento et al.
    The pairing of chemogenetic and electrophysiological approaches reveals mechanisms by which cholinergic synapses modulate the final motor output of the nervous system.

    Dynamic neuromuscular remodeling precedes motor-unit loss in a mouse model of ALS

    Éric Martineau et al.
    Motor axons undergo dynamic branch-specific changes for weeks before complete neuronal degeneration in a model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, highlighting the importance of peripheral factors, intrinsic and extrinsic to motoneurons.

    In vivo assessment of the neural substrate linked with vocal imitation accuracy

    Julie Hamaide et al.
    Song learning accuracy can be predicted and traced in the structural properties of the brains of juvenile male zebra finches already at 20 days post-hatching.

    Cross-species cortical alignment identifies different types of anatomical reorganization in the primate temporal lobe

    Nicole Eichert et al.
    Cross-species alignment based on cortical myelin content can dissociate cortical expansion and relocation from changes in connectivity profiles in the temporal lobe of higher primates.

    A Fyn biosensor reveals pulsatile, spatially localized kinase activity and signaling crosstalk in live mammalian cells

    Ananya Mukherjee et al.
    Unique biosensor design and protein-engineering enables direct visualization of the active form of Fyn kinase with high specificity, minimal perturbation and shows cellular signaling to be compartmentalized and pulsatile.

    Revisiting the role of Dcc in visual system development with a novel eye clearing method

    Robin J Vigouroux et al.
    A new eye-specific Dcc mutant combined with an improved clearing protocol for the eye and brain (EyeDISCO) reveals the requirement of the receptor Dcc for retinal development and maintenance.
