    Episode 2: July 2013

    In this episode we hear about plants doing maths, the evolution of cancer, why blood vessels don'€™t grow in the retina, the immune system and more.

    Episode 31: August 2016

    In this episode we hear about human height, fish joints, colour vision, chimpanzees using tools and open science.
  3. Episode 3: August 2013

    Episode 3: August 2013

    In this episode we hear about the cocktail party effect, the role of psuedogene RNA in the immune response, the genetic origins of a common form of blindness, the flu vaccine, and the origins of schistosomiasis.

    Spatial readout of visual looming in the central brain of Drosophila

    Mai M Morimoto et al.
    In the Drosophila central brain, synaptic connectivity extracts visual-spatial information from the axons of looming sensitive LC6 neurons that terminate in a glomerulus with minimal retinotopy.
    1. Neuroscience

    Preserving inhibition with a disinhibitory microcircuit in the retina

    Qiang Chen et al.
    A disinhibitory motif in the retina mediates noise resilience of motion detection using an inverted algorithm of disinhibition due to the interplay between network activity and synaptic plasticity.

    Genome streamlining in a minute herbivore that manipulates its host plant

    Robert Greenhalgh et al.
    The genome of a tiny tomato pest reveals mechanisms that underlie metazoan genome reduction.

    Coordinated crosstalk between microtubules and actin by a spectraplakin regulates lumen formation and branching

    Delia Ricolo, Sofia J Araujo
    Lumen formation by single epithelial cells depends on FGF-signalling-dependent expression of a spectraplakin, which can be functionally replaced by Tau.
    1. Neuroscience

    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.

    Ciliary neuropeptidergic signaling dynamically regulates excitatory synapses in postnatal neocortical pyramidal neurons

    Lauren Tereshko et al.
    Neuropeptidergic signaling via cilia-localized receptors dynamically regulates excitatory synaptic drive in postnatal rat neocortical pyramidal neurons.

    Time-resolved serial femtosecond crystallography reveals early structural changes in channelrhodopsin

    Kazumasa Oda et al.
    Time-resolved serial femtosecond crystallography revealed retinal kink and early changes in channelrhodopsin, which leads to the ion pore formation.
