    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.

    Glycolysis upregulation is neuroprotective as a compensatory mechanism in ALS

    Ernesto Manzo et al.
    Degenerating motor neurons compensate for energetic deficits by upregulating glycolysis in flies and humans, with increased glucose availability improving locomotor function and lifespan in flies.

    Maintenance of homeostatic plasticity at the Drosophila neuromuscular synapse requires continuous IP3-directed signaling

    Thomas D James et al.
    Synapses employ distinct acute and chronic signaling processes in order to maintain physiologically appropriate levels of function.
