    Here, Johnson and Xue describe various physiological and psychosocial challenges that lead to the sensitization of hypertension. These challenges drive neuroplasticity in the brain network controlling sympathetic tone and blood pressure, and provide a new paradigm for understanding essential hypertension.

    Here, Lam and colleagues review advances in understanding the pathogenesis of tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). Although rapalogues are effective cytostatic treatments for TSC, the unique metabolic vulnerabilities of cells lacking hamartin and/or tuberin might represent opportunities for developing cytocidal treatments.

    Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a life-threatening complication in critically-ill neonates. This Review explores the evidence that intrauterine growth restriction, premature birth and low birth weight contribute to neonatal AKI, and discusses perinatal and postnatal risk factors that enhance the risk of AKI among neonates.
