There is an unmet need for drug therapies to improve recovery by promoting brain plasticity in the subacute to chronic phase after ischaemic stroke. We previously showed that complement-derived peptide C3a regulates neural progenitor cell migration and differentiation in vitro and that C3a receptor signalling stimulates neurogenesis in unchallenged adult mice. To determine the role of C3a—C3a receptor signalling in ischaemia-induced neural plasticity, we subjected C3a receptor-deficient mice, GFAP-C3a transgenic mice expressing biologically active C3a in the central nervous system, and their respective wild-type controls to photothrombotic stroke. To verify the translational potential of these findings, we used a pharmacological approach.

In contrast, it has been a dogma that the PLR in mammals generally requires neuronal circuitry connecting the eye and the brain. We report here that an intrinsic component of the PLR is actually widespread in nocturnal and crepuscular mammals. In mouse, this intrinsic PLR requires the visual pigment, melanopsin.
The discovery of ipRGCs has overturned the century-old belief that rods and cones are the only mammalian retinal photoreceptors 1 — 6. These ganglion-cell photoreceptors serve primarily non-image visual functions, with one being the PLR. For lower vertebrates such as fish, amphibian and bird, in addition to the neurally-driven PLR, the iris itself is capable of autonomous, light-induced constriction 7 — For mammals, the PLR is thought to generally require neuronal circuitry through the brain, although sporadic reports 7 , 12 , 13 and controversy exist of an intrinsic iridic photosensitivity in occasional species, including human.
Even in lower vertebrates, the photopigment driving the intrinsic PLR remains unidentified. It has been suggested to be rhodopsin in amphibians and fish 8 , 9 , and the non-opsin-based cryptochrome in chicken We have examined this unsettled question of an intrinsic PLR in mammals, and found the phenomenon to be surprisingly widespread. Intrinsic PLR in mouse and other mammals We found that bright light triggered a pupillary constriction in an intact eye freshly isolated from a dark-adapted pigmented mouse Fig.
Thematic Consultation on Capacity-building and Technical and Scientific Cooperation for the Post Global Biodiversity Framework , March , Rome, Italy We also had planned to attend some of the other upcoming events as mentioned in previous newsletters, but for now these have been postponed due to the situation with the COVID virus. We hope the situation can be resolved soon so that we can continue to contribute to this important process. Please continue to check this newsletter for further updates as the situation evolves. Around 35 participants—mostly delegates from national government parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity CBD —attended for a lively discussion of what a landscape approach can contribute to making biodiversity policy more effective, and to share experiences and perspectives from countries around the world.

When they observed a colony that was foraging on naturally-available food resources with no access to a feeder, most of the waggle dance followers that used the stop signal had not previously been tremble dancing Pastor and Seeley, This may be because some bees were not able to access the feeder at all due to overcrowding and returned to the colony without feeding. Worker piping in honey bee swarms opsi its role in preparing for liftoff. A summary of the roles of the stop signal can be found in Table 1. The focus will be on exploring the balance among communication signals used by individuals and ipso resulting adjustment of response by the colony as a unit. Each unit, be it an insect, a robot, or a neuron, accumulates evidence until some threshold is reached and a decision can be made.
