    Motor thalamus supports striatum-driven reinforcement

    Arnaud L Lalive et al.
    While the basal ganglia have long been thought to mediate learning through dopamine-dependent striatal plasticity, their regulation of motor thalamus plays an unexpected and critical role in reinforcement.

    A network of epigenetic modifiers and DNA repair genes controls tissue-specific copy number alteration preference

    Dina Cramer et al.
    The genetic background of a cancer cell and the chromatin organization of the tissue-of-origin impact the amount, length and position of somatic copy number alterations in cancer.

    Dissecting the pre-placodal transcriptome to reveal presumptive direct targets of Six1 and Eya1 in cranial placodes

    Nick Riddiford, Gerhard Schlosser
    RNA sequencing of the African clawed frog has identified hundreds of putative direct Six1 and Eya1 target genes, including transcriptional regulators of neuronal progenitors and neuronal/sensory differentiation.

    Body ownership promotes visual awareness

    Björn van der Hoort et al.
    Inducing illusory ownership of a fake hand increases the perceptual dominance of that hand during binocular rivalry.

    Node of Ranvier length as a potential regulator of myelinated axon conduction speed

    I Lorena Arancibia-Cárcamo et al.
    Node of Ranvier length is similar at successive nodes along single myelinated CNS axons, but differs between axons, and could potentially be tuned to adjust the conduction velocity of each axon.

    Ventromedial prefrontal cortex stimulation enhances memory and hippocampal neurogenesis in the middle-aged rats

    Albert Liu et al.
    High-frequency stimulation of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, which enhances memory and hippocampal neurogenesis, is a novel target for treatment of dementia-related diseases.

    Inter-individual stereotypy of the Platynereis larval visual connectome

    Nadine Randel et al.
    Building on previous work (Randel et al., 2014), a comparison of the visual neuronal circuitry in two Platynereis larvae, made using serial electron microscopic reconstructions, reveals a high level of stereotypy in the synaptic connectivity.
