    Heterogeneous side effects of cortical inactivation in behaving animals

    Ariana R Andrei et al.
    Focal optogenetic inactivation of cortex induces complex changes in neural responses outside the targeted area that can influence behavioral performance.

    Coherent theta activity in the medial and orbital frontal cortices encodes reward value

    Linda M Amarante, Mark Laubach
    The more you want it or the better it is, the stronger is medial frontal theta (paraphrased from a retweet of the preprint by Dr James Hyman).

    A zebrafish screen reveals Renin-angiotensin system inhibitors as neuroprotective via mitochondrial restoration in dopamine neurons

    Gha-Hyun J Kim et al.
    In vivo dopamine neuron imaging-based neuroprotective small molecule screen in larval zebrafish and mechanistic investigation using conditional CRISPR knockout and cell-type-specific RNA-seq analysis, coupled with cross-species analyses including human clinical data interrogation, uncover potential disease-modifying therapeutics for Parkinson's disease (PD).

    DeepEthogram, a machine learning pipeline for supervised behavior classification from raw pixels

    James P Bohnslav et al.
    DeepEthogram automatically classifies animal behavior videos into researcher-defined behaviors of interest, saving researcher time and enabling more detailed downstream analysis of behavior.

    Urocortin-3 neurons in the mouse perifornical area promote infant-directed neglect and aggression

    Anita E Autry et al.
    Genetic and functional manipulations uncover urocortin-3-expressing neurons in the perifornical area of the hypothalamus as a dedicated circuit component for the expression of infant-directed neglect and aggression in mice.

    Sleeping at the switch

    Maude Bouchard et al.
    Slow and fast switcher slow waves in human sleep show distinct EEG connectivity patterns and homeostatic regulation as well as changes during aging.
