    A neural circuit mechanism for regulating vocal variability during song learning in zebra finches

    Jonathan Garst-Orozco et al.
    By demonstrating song learning-related synaptic strengthening and pruning in the vocal control circuits of songbirds, and showing how such changes can reduce the sensitivity of the circuit to ‘noisy’ inputs, a simple neural circuit mechanism for regulating motor variability during motor skill learning is identified.

    Hidden synaptic differences in a neural circuit underlie differential behavioral susceptibility to a neural injury

    Akira Sakurai et al.
    Animal-to-animal variability in neural circuit elements is often hidden under normal conditions, but becomes functionally relevant when the system is challenged by injury.

    Neuropeptide F regulates courtship in Drosophila through a male-specific neuronal circuit

    Weiwei Liu et al.
    Functional dissection of a cluster of male-specific neurons in Drosophila reveals a neuronal circuit regulating male courtship in accordance with the internal drive state.

    Monosynaptic premotor circuit tracing reveals neural substrates for oro-motor coordination

    Edward Stanek IV et al.
    Retrograde tracing of the neural circuits that control movement of the jaw and tongue reveals how shared premotor neurons help to ensure coordinated muscle activity.

    A neural circuit for gamma-band coherence across the retinotopic map in mouse visual cortex

    Richard Hakim et al.
    A neural circuit between layer 2/3 pyramidal cells and somatostatin-expressing inhibitory neurons synchronizes spatially separated regions of the visual cortex to gamma rhythms.

    Temporal transcription factors determine circuit membership by permanently altering motor neuron-to-muscle synaptic partnerships

    Julia L Meng et al.
    Acting in neuronal stem cells, temporal transcription factors, as a class of molecules, are uniquely potent determinants of circuit membership that establish expected patterns of wiring in the motor system.

    Early-generated interneurons regulate neuronal circuit formation during early postnatal development

    Chang-Zheng Wang et al.
    Early-generated interneurons are more mature in intrinsic properties and neuronal connectivity during early postnatal stage, and are critical for proper spontaneous network synchronization and the wiring of immature cortical circuits.

    A receptor and neuron that activate a circuit limiting sucrose consumption

    Ryan M Joseph et al.
    Although sugar-sensing taste neurons typically promote feeding, a taste neuron in the Drosophila pharynx limits feeding via the IR60b receptor; thus, revealing a new element in the circuit logic of feeding control.

    Neuronal connectome of a sensory-motor circuit for visual navigation

    Nadine Randel et al.
    Three-dimensional mapping of the neural circuitry that controls movement of a marine worm in response to light provides insights into the evolution of complex visual systems.
