  1. Central dopamine action modulates neuropeptide-controlled appetite via the hypothalamic PI3K/NF-κB-dependent mechanism

    Y.-S. Hsieh, P.-N. Chen, C.-H. Yu and D.-Y. Kuo

    Article first published online: 19 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/gbb.12174

    Dopamine–PI3K–NF-κB signaling in the hypothalamus plays functional roles in the modulation of NPY and POMC neurotransmissions and in the control of AMPH-evoked appetite suppression.

  2. Fear-related behaviors in Lurcher mutant mice exposed to a predator

    T. Lorivel, V. Roy and P. Hilber

    Article first published online: 19 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/gbb.12173

    Cerebellar Lurcher mutants facing a predator exhibited an exaggerated fear-related response when compared with control mice (legend in the article).

  3. Mpdz expression in the caudolateral substantia nigra pars reticulata is crucially involved in alcohol withdrawal

    L. C. Kruse, N. A. R. Walter and K. J. Buck

    Article first published online: 17 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/gbb.12171

    Reduced Mpdz expression in the caudolateral substantia nigra pars reticulata enhances alcohol withdrawal severity in mice.

    This multivariate twin study identifies a common genetic factor that accounts for all the heritability of intracranial volume (0.88) and a substantial proportion of the heritability of all subcortical structures, particularly those of the thalamus (0.71 out of 0.88), pallidum (0.52 out of 0.75) and putamen (0.43 out of 0.89). In parallel, it also describes substantial region-specific genetic contributions to the heritability of the hippocampus (0.39 out of 0.79), caudate nucleus (0.46 out of 0.78), amygdala (0.25 out of 0.45) and nucleus accumbens (0.28 out of 0.52).
