    Across-species differences in pitch perception are consistent with differences in cochlear filtering

    Kerry MM Walker et al.
    Humans and other animals have different strategies for extracting the pitch of sounds, potentially driven by the species-specific frequency selectivity of the ear.

    A causal relationship between face-patch activity and face-detection behavior

    Srivatsun Sadagopan et al.
    Disrupting the activity of the medial lateral face patch (ML) using fMRI-targeted microinjections of muscimol leads to anatomically and categorically specific impairments in a naturalistic face detection task.

    Identification of a bilirubin receptor that may mediate a component of cholestatic itch

    James Meixiong et al.
    MRGPRX4 is a bilirubin receptor that may be a therapeutic target for patients suffering from cholestatic itch.

    Knockout of Slo2.2 enhances itch, abolishes KNa current, and increases action potential firing frequency in DRG neurons

    Pedro L Martinez-Espinosa et al.
    Sodium-activated potassium ion currents encoded by the kcnt1 gene delay action potential firing in DRG neurons by activity preceding an action potential.

    PTRF/Cavin-1 promotes efficient ribosomal RNA transcription in response to metabolic challenges

    Libin Liu, Paul F Pilch
    PTRF (Cavin-1) mediates metabolism-regulated ribosomal transcription in mature adipocytes, independent of its role in caveolae formation.

    A zebrafish and mouse model for selective pruritus via direct activation of TRPA1

    Kali Esancy et al.
    A pain-relaying ion channel on a hypersensitive population of sensory neurons can instead elicit sensations of itch in both fish and mice when directly activated, providing a novel model of itch transduction.

    Synaptic representation of locomotion in single cerebellar granule cells

    Kate Powell et al.
    The first patch-clamp recordings from single cerebellar granule cells during locomotion reveal that the entire step sequence can be predicted from both excitatory synaptic input and output spikes from a single neuron.

    Cooperation between tropomyosin and α-actinin inhibits fimbrin association with actin filament networks in fission yeast

    Jenna R Christensen et al.
    The contractile ring actin binding proteins tropomyosin Cdc8 and a-actinin Ain1 synergize to effectively compete with the endocytic actin patch protein fimbrin Fim1 for associating with F-actin networks.
    1. Neuroscience

    Multi-neuron intracellular recording in vivo via interacting autopatching robots

    Suhasa B Kodandaramaiah et al.
    A robot capable of automatically obtaining blind whole cell patch clamp recordings from multiple neurons simultaneously guides four interacting electrodes in a coordinated fashion, avoiding mechanical coupling in the brain.
