    Acute control of the sleep switch in Drosophila reveals a role for gap junctions in regulating behavioral responsiveness

    Michael Troup et al.
    Optogenetic activation reveals a larger role for the fly brain 'sleep switch' neurons in controlling both waking and sleeping behavioral responsiveness, partly via a parallel channel involving innexin6 electrical synapses.
