    Mouse rods signal through gap junctions with cones

    Sabrina Asteriti et al.
    Electrophysiological recordings show that cones in the eyes of mice are able to receive strong input from rods via gap junctions, supporting the view that this route plays an important role in vision.

    TTC26/DYF13 is an intraflagellar transport protein required for transport of motility-related proteins into flagella

    Hiroaki Ishikawa et al.
    Loss of one protein from the intraflagellar transport complex leads to a defect in import of a specific sub-set of proteins into the flagellum.

    A high-resolution morphological and ultrastructural map of anterior sensory cilia and glia in Caenorhabditis elegans

    David B Doroquez et al.
    The three-dimensional structures of 50 sensory cilia present in the head of the adult C. elegans hermaphrodite have been reconstructed to provide a foundation for investigations into the mechanisms by which the diversity of cilia structures is generated and how this structural diversity is related to specific sensory neuron functions.

    Selective amputation of the pharynx identifies a FoxA-dependent regeneration program in planaria

    Carolyn E Adler et al.
    A chemical method has been developed for studying single organ regeneration and fate specification of stem cells in an adult organism.

    Regulation of branching dynamics by axon-intrinsic asymmetries in Tyrosine Kinase Receptor signaling

    Marlen Zschätzsch et al.
    Asymmetric localization of the receptor EGFR within branches of axons is required to establish the precise wiring of neuronal networks within the Drosophila brain.

    Cell-intrinsic mechanisms of temperature compensation in a grasshopper sensory receptor neuron

    Frederic A Roemschied et al.
    The firing rates of neurons in the grasshopper auditory system are surprisingly robust to changes in temperature, and cell-intrinsic mechanisms are sufficient to explain this temperature insensitivity.

    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.

    Natural variation reveals that intracellular distribution of ELF3 protein is associated with function in the circadian clock

    Muhammad Usman Anwer et al.
    In Arabidopsis, a natural variant of the ELF3 protein, which originated in Central Asia, is less likely to accumulate in the nucleus, and causes the circadian clock to run faster and be less responsive to environmental cues.

    PDF neuron firing phase-shifts key circadian activity neurons in Drosophila

    Fang Guo et al.
    A few circadian ‘evening’ neurons within the Drosophila brain play a key role in driving activity as well as keeping time, whereas the well-known PDF-containing morning cells are likely involved in integrating and transmitting light information.
