Authors tested whether native English-speaking adults could learn a second, visually atypical writing system, HouseFont, and used neuroimaging data to assess the location of any learning effects.
Authors provide the first functional description of the emergence of neocortical fast ripples in hippocampal epilepsy and show that cross-frequency coupling might be a fundamental mechanism underlying the spreading of epileptic activity.
PhD Candidate Ruilong Hu and Dr. Ricardo Araneda tell the story about their eNeuro publication that showed that the two predominant subtypes of inhibitory neurons in the main olfactory bulb, the granule cells and periglomerular cells, exhibit subthreshold resonance mediated by hyperpolarization-activated currents (Ih), as opposed to the primary output neurons, the mitral cells.
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.
