Authors used well-established seizure protocols and fast confocal imaging of genetically encoded calcium indicator-expressing zebrafish to investigate epileptic network properties at brain-wide and single-cell levels.

Dr. Laura Blair tells the story about her first-author eNeuro paper that showed that mice with high expression levels of the FK506-binding protein FKBP51 have altered reversal learning and memory, which may be through direct regulation of neuronal activity by regulating AMPA receptors.
Authors show that excitation and inhibition of pyramidal neurons in different basolateral amygdala subdivisions promote auditory fear memory formation.
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.
Authors show that the same stress can elicit divergent morphological effects in astrocytes in the hippocampus versus the amygdala.
Authors show that the memory of eating a recent meal likely inhibits subsequent food consumption.

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.
Authors found that experimentally induced stroke causes a secondary wave of brain tissue inflammation that shares some molecular and morphological characteristics with atherosclerosis.
