    Controlling contractile instabilities in the actomyosin cortex

    Masatoshi Nishikawa et al.
    Combining quantitative biological experiment and physical description of actomyosin cortex reveals a contractile instability in the cortex of C. elegans embryo, and its biochemical control in order to robustly drive morphogenetic events.

    A synthetic peptide that prevents cAMP regulation in mammalian hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channels

    Andrea Saponaro et al.
    Cell-penetrating peptide drugs prevent adrenergic regulation of pacemaker channels without altering the overall response of the cell to cAMP.

    Blood transcriptome based biomarkers for human circadian phase

    Emma E Laing et al.
    An unbiased modelling approach shows that only a few blood transcriptome samples are required to accurately assess the human circadian melatonin phase, even during altered sleep schedules.

    Flexible theta sequence compression mediated via phase precessing interneurons

    Angus Chadwick et al.
    A new model for phase precession accounts for theta sequence generation, suggests critical roles for interneurons, and predicts circuit properties to optimise memory storage.

    Temporal transcriptomics suggest that twin-peaking genes reset the clock

    William G Pembroke et al.
    RNA sequencing reveals the finer details of circadian variation in the mammalian master pacemaker over 24 hours, which suggests that transcriptional timing influences clock resetting mechanisms.

    Sleep-promoting effects of threonine link amino acid metabolism in Drosophila neuron to GABAergic control of sleep drive

    Yoonhee Ki, Chunghun Lim
    Threonine promotes sleep via down-regulation of metabotropic GABA transmission in the ellipsoid body R2 neurons that generate homeostatic sleep drive in Drosophila.

    Lognormal firing rate distribution reveals prominent fluctuation–driven regime in spinal motor networks

    Peter C Petersen, Rune W Berg
    Neuronal participation in generation of motor patterns in the spinal circuits is lognormal, which is an indication of a rich diversity of activity within the mean-driven as well as the fluctuation-driven regimes.

    Calcium handling precedes cardiac differentiation to initiate the first heartbeat

    Richard CV Tyser et al.
    High-resolution live imaging reveals how and when the mouse heart first starts to beat during development and how the onset of beating impacts on heart muscle cell maturation and heart formation.

    Functionally asymmetric motor neurons contribute to coordinating locomotion of Caenorhabditis elegans

    Oleg Tolstenkov et al.
    The 'missing' class of Caenorhabditis elegans excitatory motor neurons, AS, contribute to propagation and coordination of body waves, integrating information from, and feeding back to premotor interneurons byelectrical signaling.

    Independent theta phase coding accounts for CA1 population sequences and enables flexible remapping

    Angus Chadwick et al.
    Independent coding without synaptic coordination explains complex sequences of population activity observed during theta states and maximizes the number of distinct environments that can be encoded through population theta sequences.
