    Fully automated, sequential focused ion beam milling for cryo-electron tomography

    Tobias Zachs et al.
    The automation of cryo-focused ion beam milling enables previously unfeasible cryo-electron tomography projects.

    Wind prevents cliff-breeding birds from accessing nests through loss of flight control

    Emily Shepard et al.
    Even moderate winds cause auks to abort landing attempts at nest-sites, and as a result, wind characteristics may affect where these, and other seabirds, choose to breed.

    Regulation of the Drosophila ID protein Extra macrochaetae by proneural dimerization partners

    Ke Li, Nicholas E Baker
    Developmental genetic and cell culture studies indicate that the Inhibitor of DNA-binding protein Extra macrochaetae (Emc), previously thought to determine where bHLH proteins can act, is itself regulated by those bHLH dimerization partners at the level of protein stability.

    Temporal identity establishes columnar neuron morphology, connectivity, and function in a Drosophila navigation circuit

    Luis F Sullivan et al.
    The Eyeless/Pax6 temporal transcription factor generates neuronal identity, connectivity, and flight navigation behavior within the conserved adult brain structure called the central complex.

    Geological and taphonomic context for the new hominin species Homo naledi from the Dinaledi Chamber, South Africa

    Paul HGM Dirks et al.
    A new hominin species found in a South African cave is part of one of the most unusual hominin fossil assemblages on record.

    Identification of a new stem cell population that generates Drosophila flight muscles

    Rajesh D Gunage et al.
    Large flight muscle of Drosophila are made by the regulated amplification of a newly identified stem cell population.

    The cAMP effector PKA mediates Moody GPCR signaling in Drosophila blood–brain barrier formation and maturation

    Xiaoling Li et al.
    A polarized Moody/protein kinase A pathway plays an unrecognized central role in controlling the enormous cell growth and blood–brain barrier integrity in a highly coordinated spatiotemporal manner in brain homeostasis.

    Characterization of cephalic and non-cephalic sensory cell types provides insight into joint photo- and mechanoreceptor evolution

    Roger Revilla-i-Domingo et al.
    Molecular, cellular and behavioral genetic approaches in Platynereis dumerilii indicate that r-Opsins can act as ancient, light-dependent modulators of mechanosensation, and suggest that light-independent mechanosensory roles of r-Opsins evolved secondarily.

    A Toll-receptor map underlies structural brain plasticity

    Guiyi Li et al.
    Structural brain plasticity is encoded in the topographic distribution of Toll receptors and their ability to switch between alternative signalling outcomes, thus translating diverse sensory experience into structural change.

    Oxytocin promotes coordinated out-group attack during intergroup conflict in humans

    Hejing Zhang et al.
    Humans intranasally administered the neuropeptide oxytocin waste less and earn more spoils during intergroup conflict because oxytocin enables group members to better coordinate strategic attacking of out-groups.
