    Plant diversity maintains multiple soil functions in future environments

    Nico Eisenhauer et al.
    Empirical evidence shows that conserving local plant diversity is a robust strategy to maintain multiple valuable ecosystem services provided by soils in both present and future environmental conditions.

    Sae2/CtIP prevents R-loop accumulation in eukaryotic cells

    Nodar Makharashvili et al.
    The CtIP DNA repair enzyme is required for the removal of transcription-associated lesions in eukaryotic cells.
    1. Neuroscience

    Neural dynamics at successive stages of the ventral visual stream are consistent with hierarchical error signals

    Elias B Issa et al.
    Neural spiking responses in the visual cortex carry both an explicit representation of the presence of a face and a late-arriving, explicit encoding of errors in face estimation.

    Promoting subjective preferences in simple economic choices during nap

    Sizhi Ai et al.
    Neurocognitive processing during sleep selectively biases subjective preferences in simple economic choices when the sleeper is stimulated by covert, reward-associated cues.
    1. Neuroscience

    Neural activity related to volitional regulation of cortical excitability

    Kathy Ruddy et al.
    Changing brain state using feedback from transcranial magnetic stimulation, by training participants to increase or decrease how excitable their motor pathways are.
