    Exercise-induced enhancement of synaptic function triggered by the inverse BAR protein, Mtss1L

    Christina Chatzi et al.
    Single episodes of voluntary exercise induced a functional increase in hippocampal synapses mediated by activity-dependent expression of the BAR protein Mtss1L, acting as a novel early effector of synapse formation.

    The ion channel ppk301 controls freshwater egg-laying in the mosquito Aedes aegypti

    Benjamin J Matthews et al.
    The ion channel ppk301 is required for the evaluation of water purity during egg-laying, which promotes offspring survival in the arboviral vector mosquito Aedes aegypti.

    Frontotemporal dementia mutant Tau promotes aberrant Fyn nanoclustering in hippocampal dendritic spines

    Pranesh Padmanabhan et al.
    Super-resolution imaging reveals that the microtubule-associated protein Tau regulates the Fyn kinase organisation in dendrites, and that the frontotemporal dementia mutant Tau promotes aberrant Fyn clustering, potentially leading to synaptic dysfunction.

    Coding strategies in the otolith system differ for translational head motion vs. static orientation relative to gravity

    Mohsen Jamali et al.
    Through different coding strategies, irregular and regular otolith afferents preferentially encode translational self-motion and changes in static head orientation relative to gravity.

    Ca2+ sensor synaptotagmin-1 mediates exocytosis in mammalian photoreceptors

    Justin J Grassmeyer et al.
    The vesicular Ca2+ sensor synaptotagmin-1 regulates both fast phasic and slow tonic glutamate release at ribbon synapses of rod and cone photoreceptor cells.

    Local online learning in recurrent networks with random feedback

    James M Murray
    A biologically plausible learning rule enables recurrent neural networks to model the way in which neural circuits use supervised learning to perform time-dependent computations.

    Sweet neurons inhibit texture discrimination by signaling TMC-expressing mechanosensitive neurons in Drosophila

    Shun-Fan Wu et al.
    Drosophila use distinct sensory mechanisms to detect and integrate the same tactile and taste information in two decision-making tasks that serve two different purposes.

    GABA neurons in the ventral tegmental area regulate non-rapid eye movement sleep in mice

    Srikanta Chowdhury et al.
    Functional identification of GABAergic neurons in the ventral tegmental area as a important neuronal subpopulation regulating non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep in mice.

    Dissociating orexin-dependent and -independent functions of orexin neurons using novel Orexin-Flp knock-in mice

    Srikanta Chowdhury et al.
    Subtraction analysis using novel Orexin-Flp mice isolated physiological importance of orexin peptides.

    Context-dependent signaling of coincident auditory and visual events in primary visual cortex

    Thomas Deneux et al.
    Abrupt sounds boost coincident visual cortex responses which could help localization of sudden audio-visual events.
