In Drosophila, core clock neurons display remarkable remodeling of their connectivity on a daily basis. In a new study, Herrero et al. investigate some of the mechanisms underlying structural plasticity and show that it relies on the activation of a novel cyclic gated nucleotide channel operating downstream of the PDFR signaling pathway.
