Authors used a novel method to show that selectively activating cholecystokinin-expressing GABAergic neurons subtly affects emotional behavior but surprisingly enhances multiple memory and cognitive processes.
Chronic Stress in Rats Impacts Astrocytic Number and Morphology in the Amygdala but Not in the Hippocampus
Authors show that the same stress can elicit divergent morphological effects in astrocytes in the hippocampus versus the amygdala.
Remembering to Eat: Inhibiting Hippocampal Neural Activity during the Postprandial Period Increases Future Food Intake
Authors show that the memory of eating a recent meal likely inhibits subsequent food consumption.

Editor's Pick: Novel Mechanistic Links Between Trophic Factor Deprivation and Sensory Axon Degeneration
Authors identify capsaicin receptor TRPV1 as a key regulator of Ca2+ entry into axoplasm that is required for developmental degeneration modeled by NGF withdrawal from sensory neurons of the dorsal root ganglion in vitro.
Physiology of Liquefactive Necrosis Suggests Treatments for Atherosclerosis Could Potentially Be Applied to Stroke
Authors found that experimentally induced stroke causes a secondary wave of brain tissue inflammation that shares some molecular and morphological characteristics with atherosclerosis.
Editor's Pick: Plasmid DNA Causes Aberrant Distribution of Microglia Following In Utero Electroporation In Forebrain
Authors describe an unexpected effect of in utero electroporation of plasmid DNA on the distribution of microglia within the developing forebrain.
Dr. Jacqueline Barker tells the story about her first-author eNeuro paper that showed that action-outcome relationships are differentially encoded by the infralimbic prefrontal cortex during goal-directed and habitual behaviors.

Peripheral Nerve Input Restores Locomotor Function in the Absence of Descending Cephalic Input Following Injury in the Leech
Authors demonstrate that in the absence of descending cephalic input, locomotor recovery in the leech is achieved by a switch to dependence on afferent information from peripheral nerves in the body wall.
