    Motor control of Drosophila feeding behavior

    Olivia Schwarz et al.
    The neuroanatomical and functional analysis of genetically-identified motoneurons controlling all major steps of Drosophila proboscis extension provides new insights into the architecture of a motor circuitry controlling a reaching-like behavior.

    Drosophila neprilysins control insulin signaling and food intake via cleavage of regulatory peptides

    Benjamin Hallier et al.
    The catalytic activity of a Drosophila neprilysin is critical to proper insulin expression and food intake by regulating homeostasis of distinct signaling peptides.
    1. Neuroscience

    Immediate perception of a reward is distinct from the reward’s long-term salience

    John P McGinnis et al.
    The experiences that are most rewarding at the time are not necessarily those that are remembered long-term.
    1. Neuroscience

    Organization and function of Drosophila odorant binding proteins

    Nikki K Larter et al.
    A genetic analysis reveals that some olfactory sensilla of Drosophila do not require an abundant odorant binding protein and that one such protein may act in gain control.
    1. Neuroscience

    Evolution of neuronal anatomy and circuitry in two highly divergent nematode species

    Ray L Hong et al.
    The substrate for evolutionary divergence does not lie in changes in neuronal cell number or targeting, but rather in sensory perception and synaptic partner choice within invariant, prepatterned neuronal processes.

    Bed nucleus of the stria terminalis regulates fear to unpredictable threat signals

    Travis D Goode et al.
    The bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) is required for the expression of defensive behavior to uncertain threats, a function that is central to pathological anxiety.
    1. Neuroscience

    Neurogenetic dissection of the Drosophila lateral horn reveals major outputs, diverse behavioural functions, and interactions with the mushroom body

    Michael-John Dolan et al.
    The generation and systematic characterisation of driver lines labelling a large number of neurons in the Drosophila innate olfactory processing centre bridges electron microscopy neuronal reconstructions, circuits and behaviour.

    The natverse, a versatile toolbox for combining and analysing neuroanatomical data

    Alexander Shakeel Bates et al.
    Open source software enables neuroscientists to integrate single neuron or synaptic-resolution datasets from different imaging modalities to analyse morphology and connectivity at the scale of whole brains and connectomes.

    A single-cell transcriptomic atlas of the adult Drosophila ventral nerve cord

    Aaron M Allen et al.
    A single-cell atlas of the adult fly VNC charts the types and properties of cells for future studies of brain development and function.

    Learning the specific quality of taste reinforcement in larval Drosophila

    Michael Schleyer et al.
    The finding that fly maggots, equipped with only 10,000 neurons, process reinforcement not only by value but also by specific quality reveals a basic operating principle of brains and challenges current models of memory organization.
