    Localization of spontaneous bursting neuronal activity in the preterm human brain with simultaneous EEG-fMRI

    Tomoki Arichi et al.
    Direct measure of neural and hemodynamic activity in the developing human brain shows that the insula is a major source of transient bursting events that are critical for cortical maturation.

    Spontaneous and evoked activity patterns diverge over development

    Lilach Avitan et al.
    Spontaneous and evoked patterns of neural activity in the larval zebrafish tectum become less similar over development, in contrast with a previous hypothesis for the computational role of spontaneous activity.

    Irregular spiking of pyramidal neurons organizes as scale-invariant neuronal avalanches in the awake state

    Timothy Bellay et al.
    Spontaneous, irregular spiking in single cortical pyramidal neurons assembles as neuronal avalanches at the group level identifying a robust scale-invariant organization of resting activity in the awake state.

    Purinergic signaling in cochlear supporting cells reduces hair cell excitability by increasing the extracellular space

    Travis A Babola et al.
    Supporting cells in the cochlea change their shape in response to purinergic receptor activation, which influences hair cell excitability by altering potassium redistribution in the extracellular space.

    Asymmetric effects of activating and inactivating cortical interneurons

    Elizabeth AK Phillips, Andrea R Hasenstaub
    The consequences of manipulating neuronal activity with techniques such as optogenetics are highly sensitive to methodological details, highlighting the need for caution when interpreting results.

    Spontaneous neurotransmission signals through store-driven Ca2+ transients to maintain synaptic homeostasis

    Austin L Reese, Ege T Kavalali
    Individual neurons can adjust the strength of their synapses by using spontaneous calcium influx through NMDA receptors to trigger the release of additional calcium from intracellular stores, which can in turn be used to regulate protein synthesis.

    Cortical state transitions and stimulus response evolve along stiff and sloppy parameter dimensions, respectively

    Adrian Ponce-Alvarez et al.
    Neurons differ in their impact on collective cortical activity, with sensitive neurons forming a stable topological core, implicated in cortical-state transitions, while peripheral insensitive neurons are more responsive to stimuli.

    Noise-induced plasticity of KCNQ2/3 and HCN channels underlies vulnerability and resilience to tinnitus

    Shuang Li et al.
    Mice that successfully avoid developing tinnitus despite exposure to excessive noise show spontaneous recovery of KCNQ2/3 potassium channel activity associated with a reduction in HCN channel activity in auditory brainstem neurons.

    Brain-wide mapping of neural activity controlling zebrafish exploratory locomotion

    Timothy W Dunn et al.
    Whole-brain activity imaging in larval zebrafish reveals brain regions that influence patterns of spontaneous movement to increase local exploration efficiency.

    The leak channel NALCN controls tonic firing and glycolytic sensitivity of substantia nigra pars reticulata neurons

    Andrew Lutas et al.
    Basal ganglia output neurons use the NALCN leak channel to maintain their characteristic tonic firing, and this channel is important for the modulation of firing by metabolic or receptor-mediated signals.
