Gerry Rubin, David Anderson (Visiting Scientist at Janelia, 2007-2013) and Eric Hoopfer (Visiting Scientist at Janelia, 2008-2013) recently showed that Drosophila P1 neurons promote an internal state that facilitates both aggression and courtship, and can control these social behaviors in a threshold-dependent manner. This work was supported in part by the Visiting Scientist Program.

Gerry Rubin, Michael Nitabach (Visiting Scientist at Janelia, 2010-present) and Divya Sitaraman (Visiting Scientist at Janelia, 2010-present) published a paper that shows for the first time specific functional connections between subsets of Drosophila mushroom body (MB) “Kenyon cells” and particular MB output neurons, and establishes the identity of synaptic microcircuits underlying transmission of homeostatic sleep signals in the MB. This work was supported in part by the Visiting Scientist Program.

Gerry Rubin, Michael Nitabach (Visiting Scientist at Janelia, 2010-present) and Divya Sitaraman (Visiting Scientist at Janelia, 2010-present) recently published work that describes the methods and approaches they used to identify wake-promoting dopaminergic neurons that innervate the Drosophila mushroom body. This work was supported by the Visiting Scientist Program.

Eva Pastalkova, Vladimir Itskov (Visiting Scientist at Janelia, 2013-2015) and Carina Curto (Visiting Scientist at Janelia, 2013-2015) introduced a novel approach to matrix analysis, called clique topology, that extracts features of the data invariant under nonlinear monotone transformations in their recent publication in PNAS.  This work was supported in part by the Visiting Scientist Program.
