    Lipocalin-2 is an anorexigenic signal in primates

    Peristera-Ioanna Petropoulou et al.
    Lipocalin-2 is a strong predictor of hunger scores, reflects an anti-obesity response that is deregulated in severely obese subjects, and exerts an anorexigenic function with a conserved interspecies mechanism.
    1. Neuroscience

    Retinotectal circuitry of larval zebrafish is adapted to detection and pursuit of prey

    Dominique Förster et al.
    The retinotectal map in zebrafish exhibits location-specific, functional specializations to match prey object movement in the visual field during the hunting sequence.
    1. Neuroscience

    The effects of chloride dynamics on substantia nigra pars reticulata responses to pallidal and striatal inputs

    Ryan S Phillips et al.
    The effects of chloride homeostasis can explain diverse responses of basal ganglia output neurons to putatively inhibitory inputs and may tune these neurons' synchrony, oscillations and behavior in decision-making scenarios.
    1. Neuroscience

    Cortical astrocytes independently regulate sleep depth and duration via separate GPCR pathways

    Trisha V Vaidyanathan et al.
    Cortical astrocytes play key roles in NREM sleep by regulating sleep depth and duration through separate GPCR pathways, and differentially control neuronal slow-wave activity in local and remote cortical circuits.

    tTARGIT AAVs mediate the sensitive and flexible manipulation of intersectional neuronal populations in mice

    Paul V Sabatini et al.
    tTARGIT AAVs offer a new approach to manipulate intersectional populations that produce selective and robust transgene expression and are easily modified.
    1. Neuroscience

    Integrative frontal-parietal dynamics supporting cognitive control

    Derek Evan Nee
    Analysis of human fMRI data reveal that intermediary areas within the fronto-parietal control network (FPCN) are critical for integrating control processing, cognitive ability, and amenability to neuromodulation.
    1. Neuroscience

    Neural encoding of actual and imagined touch within human posterior parietal cortex

    Srinivas Chivukula et al.
    Single neurons in human posterior parietal cortex encode actual and imagined touch within a shared neural substrate.
