Daily briefing: China dominates ranking of research rising stars, Published online: 20 September 2018; doi:10.1038/d41586-018-06789-0

The rise of Chinese institutions in the Nature Index, the visa woes hampering African and Asian researchers, and the most beautiful slugs in the world. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-06789-0

T cells in patients with narcolepsy target self-antigens of hypocretin neurons

T cells in patients with narcolepsy target self-antigens of hypocretin neurons, Published online: 19 September 2018; doi:10.1038/s41586-018-0540-1

The detection of hypocretin-specific autoreactive CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in patients with narcolepsy reveals the autoimmune aetiology of this disorder. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0540-1

Elimination of senescent cells prevents neurodegeneration in mice, Published online: 19 September 2018; doi:10.1038/d41586-018-06677-7

Aggregation of the protein tau is implicated in neurodegenerative diseases in humans. It emerges that eliminating a type of damaged cell that no longer divides can prevent tau-mediated neurodegeneration in mice. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-06677-7

Hydraulic diversity of forests regulates ecosystem resilience during drought, Published online: 19 September 2018; doi:10.1038/s41586-018-0539-7

The diversity in the hydraulic traits of trees mediates ecosystem resilience to drought and will probably have an important role in future ecosystem–atmosphere feedback effects. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0539-7

Photoemission, the ejection of an electron from a material on the absorption of a photon, is one of the fastest processes in nature. An experiment demonstrates how the dynamics of this process can be captured in real time. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-06687-5

Tc toxin activation requires unfolding and refolding of a β-propeller, Published online: 19 September 2018; doi:10.1038/s41586-018-0556-6

A high-resolution cryo-electron microscopy structure of a complete Tc holotoxin complex reveals the precise mechanism of Tc toxin assembly, gate opening and release of the cytotoxic enzyme into the translocation channel. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0556-6

Clearance of senescent glial cells prevents tau-dependent pathology and cognitive decline

Clearance of senescent glial cells prevents tau-dependent pathology and cognitive decline, Published online: 19 September 2018; doi:10.1038/s41586-018-0543-y

In a mouse model of tau-dependent neurodegenerative disease, the clearance of senescent glial cells prevents the degeneration of cortical and hippocampal neurons and preserves cognitive function. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0543-y

Absolute timing of the photoelectric effect, Published online: 19 September 2018; doi:10.1038/s41586-018-0503-6

The absolute timing of the photoelectric effect has proved difficult to measure, but the delay between photon arrival at a tungsten surface and ejection of photoelectrons has now been determined. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0503-6
