Corticostriatal Transmission Is Selectively Enhanced in Striatonigral Neurons with Postnatal Loss of Tsc1.

Corticostriatal Transmission Is Selectively Enhanced in Striatonigral Neurons with Postnatal Loss of Tsc1. Cell Rep. 2018 Jun 12;23(11):3197-3208 Authors: Benthall KN, Ong SL, Bateup HS Abstract mTORC1 is a central signaling hub that integrates intra- and extracellular signals to regulate a variety of cellular metabolic processes. Mutations in regulators of mTORC1 lead to neurodevelopmental disorders […]

The Preoptic Area and the RFamide-Related Peptide Neuronal System Gate Seasonal Changes in Chemosensory Processing.

Related Articles The Preoptic Area and the RFamide-Related Peptide Neuronal System Gate Seasonal Changes in Chemosensory Processing. Integr Comp Biol. 2017 Nov 01;57(5):1055-1065 Authors: Jennings KJ, Chasles M, Cho H, Mikkelsen J, Bentley G, Keller M, Kriegsfeld LJ Abstract Males of many species rely on chemosensory information for social communication. In male Syrian hamsters (Mesocricetus […]

Spectrally Resolved, Functional Super-Resolution Microscopy Reveals Nanoscale Compositional Heterogeneity in Live-Cell Membranes.

Related Articles Spectrally Resolved, Functional Super-Resolution Microscopy Reveals Nanoscale Compositional Heterogeneity in Live-Cell Membranes. J Am Chem Soc. 2017 08 16;139(32):10944-10947 Authors: Moon S, Yan R, Kenny SJ, Shyu Y, Xiang L, Li W, Xu K Abstract By recording the full fluorescence spectra and super-resolved positions of ∼106 individual polarity-sensing solvatochromic molecules, we reveal compositional […]

Sex differences in variability across timescales in BALB/c mice.

Related Articles Sex differences in variability across timescales in BALB/c mice. Biol Sex Differ. 2017;8:7 Authors: Smarr BL, Grant AD, Zucker I, Prendergast BJ, Kriegsfeld LJ Abstract BACKGROUND: Females are markedly underinvestigated in the biological and behavioral sciences due to the presumption that cyclic hormonal changes across the ovulatory cycle introduce excess variability to measures […]

Restoring Vision to the Blind with Chemical Photoswitches.

Restoring Vision to the Blind with Chemical Photoswitches. Chem Rev. 2018 Jun 06;: Authors: Tochitsky I, Kienzler MA, Isacoff E, Kramer RH Abstract Degenerative retinal diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) affect millions of people around the world and lead to irreversible vision loss if left untreated. A number of […]

Proliferation versus Differentiation: Redefining Retinoic Acid’s Role.

Proliferation versus Differentiation: Redefining Retinoic Acid’s Role. Stem Cell Reports. 2018 Jun 05;10(6):1673-1675 Authors: Mosher KI, Schaffer DV Abstract Retinoic acid is commonly used in culture to differentiate stem cells into neurons and has established neural differentiation functions in vivo in developing and adult organisms. In this issue of Stem Cell Reports, Mishra et al. (2018) broaden […]

Design of a Highly Bistable Photoswitchable Tethered Ligand for Rapid and Sustained Manipulation of Neurotransmission.

Design of a Highly Bistable Photoswitchable Tethered Ligand for Rapid and Sustained Manipulation of Neurotransmission. J Am Chem Soc. 2018 Jun 06;: Authors: Lin WC, Tsai MC, Rajappa R, Kramer RH Abstract Photoswitchable neurotransmitter receptors are powerful tools for precise manipulation of neural signaling. However, their applications for slow or long-lasting biological events are constrained […]

Sensations from a single M-cone depend on the activity of surrounding S-cones.

Related Articles Sensations from a single M-cone depend on the activity of surrounding S-cones. Sci Rep. 2018 Jun 04;8(1):8561 Authors: Schmidt BP, Sabesan R, Tuten WS, Neitz J, Roorda A Abstract Color vision requires the activity of cone photoreceptors to be compared in post-receptoral circuitry. Decades of psychophysical measurements have quantified the nature of these […]
