Authors show that one olfactory cortical structure, the olfactory tubercle, is unique among olfactory cortices in that it lacks feedback projections to the olfactory bulb.

Authors show that blocking endogenous Bone Morphogenetic Protein 4 signaling via a selective pharmacological approach promotes oligodendroglial differentiation and increases the rate of remyelination after a central demyelinating insult in vivo.
Editor's Pick: Does Learning a Second Language Rely on Familiarity with Native Language Orthography?
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.
Editor's Pick: Opposing Roles of Inhibitory Signaling in Basolateral Amygdala Subdivisions in Auditory Fear Learning
Authors show that excitation and inhibition of pyramidal neurons in different basolateral amygdala subdivisions promote auditory fear memory formation.
