One of the most important ingredients in breast milk you've never heard of

Nutrition matters, and early diet has life-long effects. So how are indigestible molecules in breast milk helping ensure the healthiest start for both breast-fed and formula-fed babies?

Transition to chronic pain: opportunities for novel therapeutics    pp383 - 384
Theodore J. Price, Allan I. Basbaum, Jacqueline Bresnahan, Jan F. Chambers, Yves De Koninck et al.
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0012-5

Research Highlights

 

Modulating microglia    p387
Darran Yates
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0027-y

In mice with experimental autoimmune encephalitis, dietary metabolites of tryptophan may modulate the activities of glia to influence neuroinflammation.

 

Synaptic building blocks    pp388 - 389
Katherine Whalley
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0018-z

New findings demonstrate the coordinated regulation of aligned clusters of presynaptic and postsynaptic proteins in dendritic structural plasticity.

 

Watch and learn    pp388 - 389
Natasha Bray
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0024-1

In mice, neurons in the anterior cingulate cortex that project to the basolateral amygdala are required for observational learning.

 

A pathway less travelled    p389
Sian Lewis
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0025-0

Opiate drugs and opioid peptides differ in their effects on intracellular signalling, in which following ligand–receptor binding and internalization, opioids continue to signal from endosomes, whereas opiates activate receptors located at the Golgi.

 

Getting in on the action (potential)    p390
Sian Lewis
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0019-y

Lifting spirits    p390
Sian Lewis
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0020-5

Keeping track of time    p390
Sian Lewis
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0021-4

Setting the pace    p390
Sian Lewis
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0022-3

A regional divide    p390
Katherine Whalley
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0015-2

Two molecularly and functionally distinct populations of pyramidal cells in the hippocampal subiculum are characterized

Reviews

 

A glial blueprint for gliomagenesis    pp393 - 403
Dylan Laug, Stacey M. Glasgow & Benjamin Deneen
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0014-3

Gliomas represent the most deadly of human brain tumours; however, little progress has been made towards their successful treatment. In this Review, Deneen and colleagues discuss how glioma tumorigenesis resembles glial development and how this may inform novel therapies.

 

Specializations for reward-guided decision-making in the primate ventral prefrontal cortex    pp404 - 417
Elisabeth A. Murray & Peter H. Rudebeck
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0013-4

Decision-making requires us to correctly evaluate the likely outcomes of our choices. Murray and Rudebeck describe how evidence from lesion and neurophysiology studies in non-human primates has given us insight into the specific contributions of prefrontal cortex subdivisions in this process.

 

Perspectives

 

Foraging for foundations in decision neuroscience: insights from ethology    pp419 - 427
Dean Mobbs, Pete C. Trimmer, Daniel T. Blumstein & Peter Dayan
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0010-7

In this Opinion article, Mobbs and colleagues argue that more should be done to combine the approaches taken in neuroscience with those taken in ethology and behavioural ecology to study decision-making. They illustrate how this has been achieved in the context of studies on foraging.

 

Socioeconomic status and the brain: prospects for neuroscience-informed policy    pp428 - 438
Martha J. Farah
doi:10.1038/s41583-018-0023-2

A growing field of research seeks to establish a neuroscientific basis for the correlations between socioeconomic status and life outcomes. Farah evaluates the opportunities and challenges that face the application of this field to wider policy discussions.
