    Gli3 utilizes Hand2 to synergistically regulate tissue-specific transcriptional networks

    Kelsey H Elliott et al.
    Context-dependent optimization of Gli-binding site occupancy, in the presence of Hand2, is critical for modulating tissue-specific transcriptional output within tissues that lack an obvious Hedgehog morphogen gradient.

    The role of cochlear place coding in the perception of frequency modulation

    Kelly L Whiteford et al.
    Human perceptual sensitivity to frequency modulation across the hearing range can be explained by a unitary neural code based on neural responses to amplitude modulation and fidelity of cochlear tuning.

    Dopaminergic and opioidergic regulation during anticipation and consumption of social and nonsocial rewards

    Sebastian Korb et al.
    Administration of dopamine and opioid receptor antagonists resulted in reduced reward anticipation (effort and increased negative facial reactions), but only administration of opioid antagonists resulted in reduced liking (facial reactions).

    Retinotectal circuitry of larval zebrafish is adapted to detection and pursuit of prey

    Dominique Förster et al.
    The retinotectal map in zebrafish exhibits location-specific, functional specializations to match prey object movement in the visual field during the hunting sequence.

    Antinociceptive modulation by the adhesion GPCR CIRL promotes mechanosensory signal discrimination

    Sven Dannhäuser et al.
    An interdisciplinary approach uncovers a new antinociceptive molecular mechanism and shows that the adhesion GPCR CIRL adjusts the sensation of gentle touch and noxious mechanical insult in opposite directions.

    A connectome and analysis of the adult Drosophila central brain

    Louis K Scheffer et al.
    New reconstruction methods are used to create a publicly available dense reconstruction of the neurons and chemical synapses of central brain of Drosophila, with analysis of its graph properties.
  1. Episode 69: September 2020

    In this episode, we hear about prostate cancer, cultural diversity in bonobos, blood fat imbalances in Latin America and the Caribbean, insect behaviour, and how astrocytes can form new neurons.

    Connectomes: Mapping the mind of a fly

    Jason Pipkin
    Scientists have created the most detailed map of the fruit fly brain to date, identifying over 25,000 neurons and 20 million synapses.

    Cadherin preserves cohesion across involuting tissues during C. elegans neurulation

    Kristopher M Barnes et al.
    A coordinated tissue movement during C. elegans central nervous system internalization reveals a novel role for HMR-1/cadherin in maintaining cohesion, and extends the concept of neurulation beyond vertebrates.

    Localized inhibition in the Drosophila mushroom body

    Hoger Amin et al.
    A large interneuron in the Drosophila mushroom body has compartmentalized activity, which causes localized inhibition and predicts that Kenyon cells inhibit themselves more than they inhibit other individual Kenyon cells.
