    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.

    Microglial trogocytosis and the complement system regulate axonal pruning in vivo

    Tony KY Lim, Edward S Ruthazer
    In vivo time lapse imaging reveals that microglial trogocytosis of presynaptic elements is regulated by the complement system which controls axon morphogenesis in the developing brain.

    Ephrin-A/EphA specific co-adaptation as a novel mechanism in topographic axon guidance

    Felix Fiederling et al.
    A distinctive novel mechanism of ephrin-A/EphA signaling modulation in retinal growth cones ensures concurrent quantitative accuracy and adaptability of topographic hardwiring.

    Binocular matching of thalamocortical and intracortical circuits in the mouse visual cortex

    Yu Gu, Jianhua Cang
    The binocular matching of thalamic inputs to layer 4 cortical neurons initiates before that of intracortical inputs.

    Deletion of a kinesin I motor unmasks a mechanism of homeostatic branching control by neurotrophin-3

    Thomas O Auer et al.
    Disrupting synapse formation between the retina and the brain in zebrafish larvae-by eliminating the molecular motor Kif5A-triggers a compensatory increase in the branching of retinal axons aimed at restoring synapse number.

    Paxillin facilitates timely neurite initiation on soft-substrate environments by interacting with the endocytic machinery

    Ting-Ya Chang et al.
    Hippocampal neurons undergo bi-stable behavior as neurites emerge, and the dominance of either state is determined by environmental mechanical properties and paxillin-associated cellular endocytic activities.

    Similar synapse elimination motifs at successive relays in the same efferent pathway during development in mice

    Shu-Hsien Sheu et al.
    A similar pattern of developmental synaptic refinement leads two consecutive synaptic relays to have the same organization suggesting that some general principle of neural organization is at play.

    An NMDA receptor-dependent mechanism for subcellular segregation of sensory inputs in the tadpole optic tectum

    Ali S Hamodi et al.
    An activity-dependent mechanism sculpts subcellular segregation of sensory inputs.

    Receptor-specific interactome as a hub for rapid cue-induced selective translation in axons

    Max Koppers et al.
    Multiple axonal guidance receptors control the local and selective translation of mRNAs by binding to ribosomes, specific mRNAs and RNA-binding proteins.

    Synaptic up-scaling preserves motor circuit output after chronic, natural inactivity

    Joseph M Santin et al.
    Synaptic scaling maintains motor output from the respiratory network of bullfrogs after months of inactivity in the winter, providing evidence for homeostatic plasticity in response to large ecologically relevant perturbations in neuronal activity.
