Anticipated moments: temporal structure in attention
Anna C. Nobre & Freek van Ede


Recommend to library

Neurodegenerative disease: Tackling tauopathy
p1 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.163
A reduction in the level of T cell intracellular antigen 1, an RNA-binding protein, was protective for tau-induced neuronal death in a mouse model of tauopathy.


Neurodevelopmental disorders: Misreading social smells
p2 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.157
Individuals with ASD demonstrate altered behavioural responses to chemosensory social cues.


Behavioural neuroscience: Regulating roaming
p2 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.165
Among isogenic Caenorhabditis elegans nematodes, some individuals show biases in aspects of foraging behaviour that persist over development, and this individual-level variation in behaviour is subject to neuromodulatory regulation.


Visual processing: Silent motion detectors
p4 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.146
'Silent' synapses enable motion detection by retinal direction-selective ganglion cells at near-threshold contrasts.


Neuromodulation: On the alert
p4 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.148
A method that integrates whole-brain neural activity measurements with cellular-level molecular phenotyping is used to investigate the neuronal populations that modulate a global brain state.


Synaptic transmission: Closer encounters
p5 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.150
At hippocampal mossy fibre synapses, depolarization-induced facilitation of vesicle release occurs via a cAMP-dependent increase in coupling between Ca2+ channels and vesicle release machinery.


Neurotransmission: A discrete form of secretion
p6 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.162
Ca2+-independent but voltage-dependent secretion is mediated by the voltage-gated calcium channel subunit CaV2.2, is enabled by SNARE machinery and results in release of ATP or neuropeptide Y.


Motor systems: Cortical instructions
p6 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.164
A study reports that low-amplitude intracortical microstimulation in the premotor cortex can be used to induce movements in monkeys by learned association.

Lineage divergence of activity-driven transcription and evolution of cognitive ability
Giles E. Hardingham, Priit Pruunsild, Michael E. Greenberg & Hilmar Bading

p9 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.138
Activity-driven changes in gene transcription regulate synaptic development and function. Bading and colleagues describe recent evidence of lineage-specific changes in the gene regulatory regions that govern excitation-transcription coupling and consider how such changes may have contributed to the evolution of human cognitive abilities.

Communication dynamics in complex brain networks
Andrea Avena-Koenigsberger, Bratislav Misic & Olaf Sporns

p17 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.149
The brain comprises complex structural and functional networks, but much remains to be determined regarding how these networks support the communication processes that underlie neuronal computation. In this Review, Avena-Koenigsberger, Misic and Sporns discuss the network basis of communication dynamics in the brain.

Anticipated moments: temporal structure in attention
Anna C. Nobre & Freek van Ede

p34 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.141
The brain uses predictable temporal structure to anticipate and select relevant events in time. Nobre and van Ede introduce different types of this 'temporal expectation' and its neural underpinnings, and describe how temporal expectation interacts with other forms of expectation in guiding adaptive behaviour.

Axo-myelinic neurotransmission: a novel mode of cell signalling in the central nervous system
I. Micu et al.

p49 | doi:10.1038/nrn.2017.128
Chemical communication between axons and their myelin sheath is an emerging concept in neurobiology. In this review, Stys and colleagues discuss how this 'axo-myelinic synapse' may play a role in metabolic control of the myelinating unit, modulate myelin dynamics and be a future therapeutic target.
