We perused the journals for neural circuit research papers so all you have to do is click on the link below, if a paper interests you. The month of May started out slow for neural circuit papers, but ended up with a plethora of papers to read ranging from a circuit for sleep, memory, vocal learning, eating, social bonding, attention and more. Here’s our list of 10 papers from May, in no particular order. Enjoy the amazing science!
