    Cell types and neuronal circuitry underlying female aggression in Drosophila

    Catherine E Schretter et al.
    A discrete group of interconnected neurons are shown to drive aggressive social interactions in Drosophila females and genetic tools to manipulate these neuronal cell types are provided.

    Distinct subpopulations of mechanosensory chordotonal organ neurons elicit grooming of the fruit fly antennae

    Stefanie Hampel et al.
    Anatomically and physiologically distinct subpopulations of mechanosensory neurons on the fruit fly antennae elicit both common and distinct behavioral responses.

    Encoding and control of orientation to airflow by a set of Drosophila fan-shaped body neurons

    Timothy A Currier et al.
    Electrophysiology identifies a population of fan-shaped body neurons that encode airflow in two directions relative to the fly midline and whose silencing disrupts proper orientation to airflow.

    Generation of a versatile BiFC ORFeome library for analyzing protein–protein interactions in live Drosophila

    Johannes Bischof et al.
    Generation of a new fly line library for analysing protein–protein interactions in vivo.

    Multiple pairs of allelic MLA immune receptor-powdery mildew AVRA effectors argue for a direct recognition mechanism

    Isabel ML Saur et al.
    Allelic MLA immune receptors have an exceptional propensity to directly detect sequence-unrelated pathogen effectors and this feature might have facilitated functional diversification of the receptor in the host population.

    Visual projection neurons in the Drosophila lobula link feature detection to distinct behavioral programs

    Ming Wu et al.
    Neurons called lobula columnar cells help fruit flies respond appropriately to specific visual cues, such as those signaling an approaching predator.

    Identification of functionally distinct macrophage subpopulations in Drosophila

    Jonathon Alexis Coates et al.
    Drosophila macrophages are a heterogeneous population of cells containing subpopulations with enhanced responses to injury that display considerable variation in their abundance across development.

    Neuropeptide F regulates courtship in Drosophila through a male-specific neuronal circuit

    Weiwei Liu et al.
    Functional dissection of a cluster of male-specific neurons in Drosophila reveals a neuronal circuit regulating male courtship in accordance with the internal drive state.

    Genetic transformation of structural and functional circuitry rewires the Drosophila brain

    Sonia Sen et al.
    Large-scale changes in the brain's functional circuitry can be brought about by simple changes in gene expression in neural stem cells during development.

    The neuronal architecture of the mushroom body provides a logic for associative learning

    Yoshinori Aso et al.
    A map of the entire array of cell types and potential projections in the mushroom body of the fruit fly brain provides insights into the circuitry that supports learning of stimulus-reward and stimulus–punishment associations.
