    Building a functional connectome of the Drosophila central complex

    Romain Franconville et al.
    The central complex, a highly conserved insect brain region important for navigation, is characterized by a high degree of recurrence and a sparseness of output pathways.
  1. Meta-research: Researchers study implicit bias in peer review

    eLife editors and staff are collaborating to better understand, and begin to address, bias in the outcomes of peer review.
  2. In technology: A summary of the Libero Community Sprint

    Direct visualization of a native Wnt in vivo reveals that a long-range Wnt gradient forms by extracellular dispersal

    Ariel M Pani, Bob Goldstein
    Free, extracellular dispersal of Wnt proteins generates a long-range gradient during animal development and is required for signaling.
    1. Plant Biology

    Anisotropic growth is achieved through the additive mechanical effect of material anisotropy and elastic asymmetry

    Firas Bou Daher et al.
    Growing upwards in the young seedling is controlled by two cooperative mechanical mechanisms: cellulose orientation in inner tissues and differential elasticity in epidermal cells.

    Experimental evaluation of the importance of colonization history in early-life gut microbiota assembly

    Inés Martínez et al.
    Experiments in ex-germ-free mice establish a measurable effect of colonization history on gut microbiota assembly, illuminating a potential cause for the high levels of unexplained individuality in host-associated microbial communities.
    1. Neuroscience

    Revealing a novel nociceptive network that links the subthalamic nucleus to pain processing

    Arnaud Pautrat et al.
    The subthalamic nucleus is linked to a nociceptive network and involved in nociceptive processing and perception.
