    Motor planning brings human primary somatosensory cortex into action-specific preparatory states

    Giacomo Ariani et al.
    Movement planning elicits finger-specific activity in primary somatosensory cortex that is strongly correlated to the finger-specific activity elicited during movement execution.

    Chlamydomonas ARMC2/PF27 is an obligate cargo adapter for intraflagellar transport of radial spokes

    Karl F Lechtreck et al.
    The cargo adapter ARMC2 mediates the association of radial spoke complexes to IFT trains ensuring radial spoke import and assembly in Chlamydomonas flagella.

    Distributed coding of duration in rodent prefrontal cortex during time reproduction

    Josephine Henke et al.
    Mixed responses in single cells or distributed across a local population of neurons can explain regression effects during time reproduction.

    Archerfish number discrimination

    Davide Potrich et al.
    Archerfish (Toxotes jaculatrix) can encode an abstract concept of number in relative numerousness judgements, without the influence of any continuous physical variables, including spatial frequency.

    Valence biases in reinforcement learning shift across adolescence and modulate subsequent memory

    Gail M Rosenbaum et al.
    Relative to children and adults, adolescents placed greater weight on negative prediction errors during learning and these age-varying learning idiosyncrasies biased subsequent memory for information associated with valenced outcomes.
