    Subunit exchange enhances information retention by CaMKII in dendritic spines

    Dilawar Singh, Upinder Singh Bhalla
    Due to subunit-exchange, CaMKII can store information at diverse time-scales and might play a central role in the memory maintenance.

    Spatial sampling in human visual cortex is modulated by both spatial and feature-based attention

    Daniel Marten van Es et al.
    The sampling of visual space is not only warped by attention towards locations but also depends on attended features.

    Arterial smooth muscle cell PKD2 (TRPP1) channels regulate systemic blood pressure

    Simon Bulley et al.
    Arterial myocyte PKD2 channels are activated by vasoconstrictor stimuli, which increases blood pressure, are upregulated during hypertension and cell-specific knockout in vivo reduces both physiological blood pressure and hypertension.

    Expanded genetic screening in Caenorhabditis elegans identifies new regulators and an inhibitory role for NAD+ in axon regeneration

    Kyung Won Kim et al.
    A function-based genetic screen using the Caenorhabditis elegans axotomy model identifies new regulators and an inhibitory role for NAD+ in axon regeneration, expanding the understanding of axon injury responses and regeneration.
