    Early life adversity decreases pre-adolescent fear expression by accelerating amygdala PV cell development

    Gabriela Manzano Nieves et al.
    Early life adversity (ELA) accelerated PV+ interneuron development in BLA and delayed the ability of pre-adolescent mice to express, but not form, an auditory conditioned fear memory in childhood.

    Different theta frameworks coexist in the rat hippocampus and are coordinated during memory-guided and novelty tasks

    Víctor J López-Madrona et al.
    Integration and segregation of information of memory and sensory in the hippocampus could be achieved by the coordination of distinct theta-gamma coding frameworks.

    Temporal selectivity declines in the aging human auditory cortex

    Julia Erb et al.
    The aged human auditory cortex shows preserved tonotopy, but temporal modulations are represented with a markedly broader tuning, highlighting decreased temporal selectivity as a hallmark of the aging auditory cortex.

    The cytokine GDF15 signals through a population of brainstem cholecystokinin neurons to mediate anorectic signalling

    Amy A Worth et al.
    The GDF15 receptor, GFRAL,is expressed on a unique population of brainstem CCK neurons and mediates pathophysiological anorexia.

    A sensorimotor model shows why a spectral jamming avoidance response does not help bats deal with jamming

    Omer Mazar, Yossi Yovel
    An elaborated bat-predator model shows that even in high bat-densities, bats can successfully catch flying insects and that changing their signals’ frequency is not necessary for dealing with sensory interference.

    α-synuclein strains that cause distinct pathologies differentially inhibit proteasome

    Genjiro Suzuki et al.
    One α-synuclein strain inhibited proteasome activity and induced apparent pathologies, while the other did not, indicating a strain-dependent toxicity of α-synuclein aggregates, which support a prion-like behavior of α-synuclein.
