    Norepinephrine is required to promote wakefulness and for hypocretin-induced arousal in zebrafish

    Chanpreet Singh et al.
    Experiments in genetically modified zebrafish that are unable to produce norepinephrine show that this neurotransmitter promotes wakefulness by mediating the effects of the neuropeptide hypocretin.

    Hypocretin neuron-specific transcriptome profiling identifies the sleep modulator Kcnh4a

    Laura Yelin-Bekerman et al.
    Comprehensive gene profiling of the hypothalamic hypocretin neurons, high resolution imaging and behavioral assays have revealed the molecular signature of these versatile neurons and identified a potassium channel that is required for nighttime sleep.

    Dissociating orexin-dependent and -independent functions of orexin neurons using novel Orexin-Flp knock-in mice

    Srikanta Chowdhury et al.
    Subtraction analysis using novel Orexin-Flp mice isolated physiological importance of orexin peptides.

    Dual orexin and MCH neuron-ablated mice display severe sleep attacks and cataplexy

    Chi Jung Hung et al.
    New transgenic mice, which can be ablated both orexin neurons and MCH neurons, showed new brain state and revealed functional interaction that MCH neurons have protective role in narcolepsy symptoms.

    Activity dynamics of amygdala GABAergic neurons during cataplexy of narcolepsy

    Ying Sun et al.
    Deep brain calcium imaging reveals the abnormal neuronal activity patterns of the amygdala GABAergic neurons in an animal model of human sleep disorder narcolepsy.

    Maternally regulated gastrulation as a source of variation contributing to cavefish forebrain evolution

    Jorge Torres-Paz et al.
    Phenotypic evolution can originate from variations in very precocious developmental events, starting even before fecundation, during the fabrication of the egg in the mother's gonad.

    Single-cell transcriptomes and whole-brain projections of serotonin neurons in the mouse dorsal and median raphe nuclei

    Jing Ren et al.
    The combination of single-cell transcriptomics and whole-brain mapping of bulk and single-cell projections reveals the relationship between the molecular architecture, cell body distribution, and axonal arborization of serotonin neurons.

    Chronic social isolation reduces 5-HT neuronal activity via upregulated SK3 calcium-activated potassium channels

    Derya Sargin et al.
    Serotonin neurons in chronically isolated mice become less responsive to excitatory stimulation, but inhibiting a distinctive calcium-activated potassium channel can restore both neuronal activity and behavior.
