    Spinal Shox2 interneuron interconnectivity related to function and development

    Ngoc T Ha, Kimberly J Dougherty
    Spinal Shox2 interneurons are strongly interconnected by gap junctional coupling in a function-specific manner, which provides a mechanism for synchronization of rhythm-generating neurons and may contribute to locomotor rhythmicity.

    Distributed rhythm generators underlie Caenorhabditis elegans forward locomotion

    Anthony D Fouad et al.
    The forward locomotor circuit of the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans consists of multiple rhythm-generating units coupled to one another in a bidirectional manner.

    Opioids modulate an emergent rhythmogenic process to depress breathing

    Xiaolu Sun et al.
    Inspiratory rhythmogenesis is mediated by an emergent mechanism independent of bursts associated with motor output and is modulated by opioids, pointing to strategies for ameliorating opioid-induced respiratory depression.

    Opioids depress breathing through two small brainstem sites

    Iris Bachmutsky et al.
    Opioids stop breathing during overdose by silencing two small brain sites, with just 140 neurons in the breathing rhythm generator exerting the key effect.

    Neuron-specific knockouts indicate the importance of network communication to Drosophila rhythmicity

    Matthias Schlichting et al.
    Network silencing experiments and cell-specific CRISPR/Cas9 knockouts suggest that network communication is necessary for generating robust rhythms within the clock neuron network.
