    anTraX, a software package for high-throughput video tracking of color-tagged insects

    Asaf Gal et al.
    anTraX is an algorithm and software package that facilitates automated analyses of insect social behavior in species and experimental settings that are not accessible with currently existing technology.

    Social-like responses are inducible in asocial Mexican cavefish despite the exhibition of strong repetitive behavior

    Motoko Iwashita, Masato Yoshizawa
    A new tracking method revealed the social-like interactions in the Mexican blind cavefish, which was thought to be evolutionarily lost, and also demonstrated its mammal-like antagonistic association between the social-like interaction and repetitive behavior.

    Genetic variation in the social environment affects behavioral phenotypes of oxytocin receptor mutants in zebrafish

    Diogo Ribeiro et al.
    Individual social behavior results from the interaction between the individuals own oxytocin receptor genotype and the oxytocin receptor genotypes of other individuals present in its social environment.

    Revealing the structure of information flows discriminates similar animal social behaviors

    Gabriele Valentini et al.
    Information theory reveals that apparently similar signaling behaviors in ants and termites are instead governed by distinct communication protocols explaining their underlying different functions.

    Microbiota-driven transcriptional changes in prefrontal cortex override genetic differences in social behavior

    Mar Gacias et al.
    Gut microbiota can influence mPFC transcriptional profiles and myelin content, overriding the impact of genetic background in the development of social avoidance behavior.

    Social dominance mediates behavioral adaptation to chronic stress in a sex-specific manner

    Stoyo Karamihalev et al.
    Social dominance has opposing effects on behavior following stress in male vs. female mice indicating an important role in sex differences in the stress response.

    Embryonic transcription factor expression in mice predicts medial amygdala neuronal identity and sex-specific responses to innate behavioral cues

    Julieta E Lischinsky et al.
    Studying the development of the medial amygdala in the mouse reveals how the brain may potentially process sex differences in innate behaviors such as mating.

    Homeodomain protein Otp affects developmental neuropeptide switching in oxytocin neurons associated with a long-term effect on social behavior

    Einav Wircer et al.
    Experiments in zebrafish reveal a new role for a critical hypothalamic transcription factor, orthopedia, in controlling developmental neuropeptide balance in a discrete oxytocin-producing neuronal circuit whose disrupted development affects social behavior.

    Genes associated with ant social behavior show distinct transcriptional and evolutionary patterns

    Alexander S Mikheyev, Timothy A Linksvayer
    Genes associated with age-based division of labor in ants exist in distinct regulatory and evolutionary contexts; genes up-regulated in young nurses are loosely connected and rapidly evolving while genes up-regulated in old foragers are highly connected and conserved.

    Evolved differences in larval social behavior mediated by novel pheromones

    Joshua D Mast et al.
    A novel pheromone/receptor neuron pair mediates attraction between Drosophila larvae, and evolved differences in pheromone signaling underlie changes in social behavior between drosophilid species.
