Summary Many animals minimize the costs of conflict by using social eavesdropping to learn about the fighting ability of potential rivals before they interact. Learning about individual conspecifics via social eavesdropping allows individuals to assess potential opponents without personal risk. However, keeping track of a network of individually differentiated social relationships is thought to be cognitively challenging. Here, we test how Polistes fuscatus nest-founding queens use social eavesd...

Summary Centrioles are highly elaborate microtubule-based structures responsible for the formation of centrosomes and cilia. Despite considerable variation across species and tissues within any given tissue, their size is essentially constant [ 1 , 2 ]. While the diameter of the centriole cylinder is set by the dimensions of the inner scaffolding structure of the cartwheel [ 3 ], how centriole length is set so precisely and stably maintained over many cell divisions is not well understood.

Summary The euarthropod head is a highly versatile and functionally specialized body region composed of multiple appendage-bearing segments and whose complex evolution has been scrutinized through anatomical, developmental, and paleontological approaches [ 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 ]. Exceptionally preserved Cambrian fossils have allowed for the reconstruction of critical stages of the evolutionary history of the head, such as the origin of the labrum—an anteromedian flap-like structure that overlies the mo...

For over 150 years, spectrally selective filters have been proposed to improve the vision of observers with color vision deficiencies [1]. About 6% of males and <1% of females have anomalies in their gene arrays coded on the X chromosome that result in significantly decreased spectral separation between their middle- (M-) and long- (L-) wave sensitive cone photoreceptors [2]. These shifts alter individuals' color-matching and chromatic discrimination such that they are classified as anomalous tr...

Summary Disrupting binocular vision during a developmental critical period can yield enduring changes to ocular dominance (OD) in primary visual cortex (V1). Here we investigated how this experience-dependent plasticity is coordinated within the laminar circuitry of V1 by deleting separately in each cortical layer (L) a gene required to close the critical period, nogo-66 receptor (ngr1). Deleting ngr1 in excitatory neurons in L4, but not in L2/3, L5, or L6, prevented closure of the critical peri...

Summary Cultural behavior, which is transmitted among conspecifics through social learning [ 1 ], is found across various taxa [ 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 ]. Vertical social transmission from parent to offspring [ 7 ] is thought to be adaptive because of the parental generation being more skilled than maturing individuals. It is found throughout the animal kingdom, particularly in species with prolonged parental care, e.g., [ 8 , 9 ]. Social learning can also occur among members of the same generation [...

Summary Behavior can vary greatly even between genetically identical animals, but what determines such individuality? New work reveals that inter-individual differences in wiring of visual interneurons in Drosophila, arising from stochastic developmental events, underlie fly-specific object orientation abilities.
