    Stimulation of hypothalamic oxytocin neurons suppresses colorectal cancer progression in mice

    Susu Pan et al.
    Assessments using chemogenetic and pharmacological approaches reveal that modulation of the activities of oxytocin neurons in the hypothalamus of the central nervous system could inhibit colorectal cancer progression in mice.

    Neuropsychological evidence of multi-domain network hubs in the human thalamus

    Kai Hwang et al.
    Lesions to the anterior-medio-dorsal thalamus cause widespread behavioral impairments across multiple cognitive domains, suggesting that thalamic hubs are critical for interconnecting diverse cognitive processes.

    Dynamic dichotomy of accumbal population activity underlies cocaine sensitization

    Ruud van Zessen et al.
    Cocaine elicits opposing activity changes in D1R vs D2R spiny projection neurons of the nucleus accumbens with much variability, subsequent recruitment of a subset of D1R neurons drives behavioral sensitization.

    Memory recall involves a transient break in excitatory-inhibitory balance

    Renée S Koolschijn et al.
    Hippocampal activity during memory recall predicts a transient increase in the ratio between neocortical glutamate and GABA, thereby allowing otherwise dormant memories to be released.

    The generation of cortical novelty responses through inhibitory plasticity

    Auguste Schulz et al.
    Inhibitory synaptic plasticity provides a flexible and biologically plausible circuit mechanism to detect the novelty of bottom-up stimuli and to generate stimulus-specific adaptation.

    The cell adhesion molecule Sdk1 shapes assembly of a retinal circuit that detects localized edges

    Pierre-Luc Rochon et al.
    A novel retinal ganglion cell requires a cell adhesion molecule to grow its dendrites, collect synaptic inputs, and become selective to edges placed in its receptive field.

    ASIC1a is required for neuronal activation via low-intensity ultrasound stimulation in mouse brain

    Jormay Lim et al.
    Mouse brain neurons response to transcranial ultrasound at the energy level of 5 mW/cm2 and repeated stimulations lead to neurogenesis while ASIC1a is required both in vitro and in vivo as one of the mechanoreceptors.

    Switch-like and persistent memory formation in individual Drosophila larvae

    Amanda Lesar et al.
    A new computer controlled behavioral assay and integrated training chamber for individual Drosophila larvae shows that larvae learn all at once and create long-term memories that last overnight.

    Optimal plasticity for memory maintenance during ongoing synaptic change

    Dhruva V Raman, Timothy O'Leary
    Simple mathematical reasoning shows that the large amount of synaptic turnover seen in many parts of the brain is in fact optimal for memory retention.

    microRNA-mediated regulation of microRNA machinery controls cell fate decisions

    Qiuying Liu et al.
    Genetic and biochemical analyses reveal that two stem-cell-specific microRNAs control stem cell fate decisions between pluripotency and differentiation through repressing Ago2, a key component of the microRNA machinery.
