Abstract
A new study in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, has identified a neural circuitry that connects regions that control sleep with those that encode sleep pressure. These novel cells, termed helicon cells for their unique morphology, are modulated by sleep control centers and integrate sensory information, providing a novel mechanism for gating of sleep.
