A novel implant can deliver complex combinations of drugs and light to targeted areas of a lab animal’s brain, without restricting the animal’s movement1. The tool could help researchers uncover the brain pathways that underlie repetitive behaviors and unusual vocalizations in mouse models of autism…

The 3D structure of DNA has only a minimal influence on gene expression, a new study suggests1. The findings call into question a fundamental assumption about how genes are regulated. The genome is organized into 3D structures called topologically associating domains (TADs), regions in which DNA seq…
