    Instantaneous movement-unrelated midbrain activity modifies ongoing eye movements

    Antimo Buonocore et al.
    Sensory activity within the superior colliculus is read out by downstream motor structures and contributes to individual saccade kinematics with single spike precision.

    Multiplexed coding by cerebellar Purkinje neurons

    Sungho Hong et al.
    Cerebellar Purkinje neurons use a multiplexed simple spike code combining synchrony/spike time and firing rate, with each component encoding distinct information about movements such as motion onset timing and kinematics.

    Peptidoglycan-dependent NF-κB activation in a small subset of brain octopaminergic neurons controls female oviposition

    Ambra Masuzzo et al.
    The universal bacteria cell wall component peptidoglycan impacts the egg-laying behavior of infected Drosophila females by directly modulating the activity of few brain octopaminergic neurons.

    Removal of inhibition uncovers latent movement potential during preparation

    Uday K Jagadisan, Neeraj J Gandhi
    Non-invasive disinhibition of the oculomotor system shows that ongoing preparatory activity in the superior colliculus has movement-generating potential and need not rise to threshold in order to produce a saccade.
    1. Neuroscience

    Motor selection dynamics in FEF explain the reaction time variance of saccades to single targets

    Christopher K Hauser et al.
    Oculomotor circuits are always busy planning the next eye movement, and this explains why, when a visual target appears, some eye movements toward it are produced very quickly whereas others take a long time to prepare.
    1. Neuroscience

    A new motor synergy that serves the needs of oculomotor and eye lid systems while keeping the downtime of vision minimal

    Mohammad Farhan Khazali et al.
    Involuntary eye movements that keep images positioned over the center of the retina are synchronized with blinks to minimize disruption to vision.
    1. Neuroscience

    External location of touch is constructed post-hoc based on limb choice

    Femke Maij et al.
    Humans retrospectively localize touch after deciding on which limb it occurred, challenging the mainstream idea that tactile location in space is the basis for assigning touch to a body part.
    1. Neuroscience

    Sensitivity and kinetics of signal transmission at the first visual synapse differentially impact visually-guided behavior

    Ignacio Sarria et al.
    Adjusting key parameters of the synaptic transmission at a single defined synapse of the visual circuit can affect properties of this circuit and animal behavior.
    1. Neuroscience

    Circadian regulation of vertebrate cone photoreceptor function

    Jingjing Zang et al.
    Circadian expression of cone visual transduction genes and corresponding proteins correlates with circadian changes in photoresponse kinetics and visual behavior, linking circadian gene expression with physiological and behavioral rhythmicity.
    1. Cell Biology

    Single-cell dynamics of pannexin-1-facilitated programmed ATP loss during apoptosis

    Hiromi Imamura et al.
    Cleavage of pannexin-1 channel by caspases facilitates the loss of intracellular ATP level and attenuates glycolytic metabolism of apoptotic cells.
