    Bidirectional encoding of motion contrast in the mouse superior colliculus

    Jad Barchini et al.
    Two photon calcium imaging experiments show that excitatory and inhibitory neurons in the mouse superior colliculus are differentially modulated by the motion contrast between stimulus center and surround.

    Lateral interactions between protofilaments of the bacterial tubulin homolog FtsZ are essential for cell division

    Fenghui Guan et al.
    Structural and functional approaches unambiguously revealed physiologically relevant lateral interactions between FtsZ protofilaments.

    Different contributions of preparatory activity in the basal ganglia and cerebellum for self-timing

    Jun Kunimatsu et al.
    Neuronal activity in the striatum keeps track of elapsed time during the time production task while that in the cerebellum correlates with stochastic variation of self-timing in the range of several hundreds of milliseconds.
