Sputtered Metal Deep-UV Interference Filters

Manufactured using single substrates of UV-grade fused silica and backed by warranty, these filters are available in 11 different passbands in a wide range of sizes, from 2mm-200mm. Laser damage thresholds >0.15 J/cm2 using a 355 nm laser (10 ns pulse, 10 Hz), and suffer no degradation after 2 hours @ 300 C.

The dopamine motive system: implications for drug and food addiction
Nora D. Volkow, Roy A. Wise & Ruben Baler

From mice to men

Touchscreen-based testing better translates cognitive assessment from animal models to humans and has reduced physically and mentally stress.

The method is amenable to automation and increasing task complexity to generate detailed data to identify mild and severe cognitive dysfunction.

Comment: Incorporating sex as a biological variable in neuroscience: what do we gain?
Margaret M. McCarthy, Catherine S. Woolley & Arthur P. Arnold

p707 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.137
In recent years, several funding agencies have introduced requirements for researchers to consider sex as a biological variable in preclinical research. In this Comment article, McCarthy and colleagues discuss the potential impact of these policies for neuroscience research.

Neural coding: Flexible in the face of distraction
p709 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.142
In a working memory task, the neural code for the target stimulus in the lateral prefrontal cortex transforms when a distractor is presented, without loss of target-related information.


Epigenetics: Leaving a lasting mark
p710 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.144
Methylation of neuronal genes at CA sequences is modulated by neuronal activity during early postnatal periods and fine tunes gene expression in adult neurons.


Neural circuits: Shock signals
p710 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.145
In fear conditioning in mice, neurons in the lateral central amygdala that express protein kinase Cδ convey the unconditioned stimulus to the lateral amygdala to enable the encoding of aversive memory.


Learning and memory: Holding the space
p711 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.143
Spatial position is spontaneously stored as part of working memory, even in tasks where spatial location is not relevant to the task.

The nano-architecture of the axonal cytoskeleton
Christophe Leterrier, Pankaj Dubey & Subhojit Roy

p713 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.129
An axon's function is dictated by its morphology and, thus, by the properties and organization of the axonal cytoskeleton. Leterrier et al. describe how advances in super-resolution and live-cell imaging are transforming our understanding of the molecular architecture of the axonal shaft.

Genetic insights into the neurodevelopmental origins of schizophrenia
Rebecca Birnbaum & Daniel R. Weinberger

p727 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.125
A causal explanation for the pathogenesis of schizophrenia is lacking. In this Review, Birnbaum and Weinberger explore recent genetic studies of schizophrenia and discuss how genetic and epigenetic risk of the disorder may converge to perturb key neurodevelopmental trajectories.

The dopamine motive system: implications for drug and food addiction
Nora D. Volkow, Roy A. Wise & Ruben Baler

p741 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.130
The dopamine motive system, which integrates reinforcement and motivation, is influenced by obesogenic foods and addictive drugs. In this Review, Volkow and colleagues highlight how these stimuli sensitize the subject's motivation towards them while desensitizing the subject's motivation towards alternative reinforcers.

Regenerating CNS myelin — from mechanisms to experimental medicines
Robin J. M. Franklin & Charles ffrench-Constant

p753 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.136
Promoting remyelination may be an effective therapeutic strategy for various disorders that are characterized by a loss of myelin, including multiple sclerosis. In this Review, Franklin and ffrench-Constant discuss recent developments in our understanding of remyelination and the efforts that are underway to enhance this process.
