    Quantitative neuroanatomy for connectomics in Drosophila

    Casey M Schneider-Mizell et al.
    A new method that uses the cellular neuroanatomy of neuronal connectivity to quickly and robustly reconstruct neuronal circuits in Drosophila from large electron microscopy volumes.

    The head direction circuit of two insect species

    Ioannis Pisokas et al.
    Two evolutionary distant insect species share a common head direction circuit with subtle differences in neuronal morphologies that result in distinct circuit dynamics adapted to each species’ ecology.

    Phylogenetic variation in cortical layer II immature neuron reservoir of mammals

    Chiara La Rosa et al.
    The higher amount of cortical immature neurons in brains with expanded neocortices may represent a reservoir of young cells for mammals with reduced neurogenesis.

    Sex-determining genes distinctly regulate courtship capability and target preference via sexually dimorphic neurons

    Kenichi Ishii et al.
    Sex-specific characteristics of the fruit fly courtship behavior are not specified by a single binary switch, but as a combination of traits that are modularly specified by separable genetic switches.

    An afferent white matter pathway from the pulvinar to the amygdala facilitates fear recognition

    Jessica McFadyen et al.
    A subcortical white matter connection from the pulvinar to the amygdala predicts how well we recognise fearful faces and the strength of feed-forward neural connectivity.

    Anatomy of nerve fiber bundles at micrometer-resolution in the vervet monkey visual system

    Hiromasa Takemura et al.
    Polarized light imaging demonstrates detailed organization of projection, callosal, longitudinal association and short association fibers in the primate visual system at micrometer-resolution.

    Achieving functional neuronal dendrite structure through sequential stochastic growth and retraction

    André Ferreira Castro et al.
    An optimal wire and function trade-off emerges from noisy growth and stochastic retraction during Drosophila class I ventral posterior dendritic arborisation (c1vpda) dendrite development.

    Conserved neural circuit structure across Drosophila larval development revealed by comparative connectomics

    Stephan Gerhard et al.
    The connectivity structure of a nociceptive circuit is precisely maintained over Drosophila larval development through cell type-specific increases in synaptic contacts as measured from electron microscopy reconstructions, while individual neurons grow five-fold in size and number of synapses.

    Science Forum: The Human Cell Atlas

    Aviv Regev et al.
    Advances in techniques for analysing single cells and tissues have inspired an international effort to create comprehensive reference maps of all human cells - the fundamental units of life - as a basis for both understanding human health and diagnosing, monitoring and treating disease.
    1. Neuroscience

    Specialized contributions of mid-tier stages of dorsal and ventral pathways to stereoscopic processing in macaque

    Toshihide W Yoshioka et al.
    Visual area MT signals binocular disparity quickly and robustly, whereas area V4 or its upstream area transforms the nature of the signals to derive a more sophisticated depth representation.
