    Spatiotemporally precise optogenetic activation of sensory neurons in freely walking Drosophila

    Brian D DeAngelis et al.
    A simple, computationally efficient method provides spatiotemporally precise optogenetic perturbations in freely walking Drosophila, revealing the asymmetries and region-specificity of behavioral programs evoked by activating mechanosensory and chemosensory neurons.

    Encoding sensory and motor patterns as time-invariant trajectories in recurrent neural networks

    Vishwa Goudar, Dean V Buonomano
    A recurrent network model trained to transcribe temporally scaled spoken digits into handwritten digits proposes that the brain flexibly encodes time-varying stimuli as neural trajectories that can be traversed at different speeds.

    Caenorhabditis elegans male sensory-motor neurons and dopaminergic support cells couple ejaculation and post-ejaculatory behaviors

    Brigitte LeBoeuf et al.
    In nematode worms, the length of the male refractory period–the time between matings–is regulated by multiple transmitters including dopamine, which both promotes ejaculation and reduces the activity of males post-copulation.

    CNGA3 acts as a cold sensor in hypothalamic neurons

    Viktor V Feketa et al.
    CNGA3 is a cold-potentiated ion channel that confers cold sensitivity to mouse hypothalamic neurons, whereas CNGA3 from hibernating ground squirrels is cold-insensitive.

    Multiple conserved cell adhesion protein interactions mediate neural wiring of a sensory circuit in C. elegans

    Byunghyuk Kim, Scott W Emmons
    The formation of neuronal connectivity of a C. elegans neuron pair is promoted by multiplexed interactions of neural cell adhesion proteins, which are evolutionarily conserved across animal taxa.

    Wiring variations that enable and constrain neural computation in a sensory microcircuit

    William F Tobin et al.
    Systematic and coordinated variations in morphology and connectivity can structurally tune a microcircuit's computation but non-systematic variably also exists, imparting "connection noise" that potentially limits processing performance.

    Neuronal connectome of a sensory-motor circuit for visual navigation

    Nadine Randel et al.
    Three-dimensional mapping of the neural circuitry that controls movement of a marine worm in response to light provides insights into the evolution of complex visual systems.
