Insight articles are related to original research papers in eLife and explain why the results reported in the paper are significant in a given field of research. Insight articles are commissioned by eLife staff.
Magnetic Resonance: Mapping the visual world to the human brain
Betina Ip, Holly Bridge
The visual maps measured non-invasively in the brain of human and non-human primates reliably reflect the underlying neuronal responses recorded with invasive electrodes.
Pain: Why sex matters
Josette J Wlaschin et al.
The immune mechanisms underlying hypersensitivity to pain after nerve injury are different in male and female mice.
Computational and Systems Biology
Circadian Rhythm: How neurons adjust to diurnality
Gabriele Andreatta, Charles N Allen
Being active during the day requires a slow-closing ion channel that dampens the activity of neurons in a specific area of the brain.
Funding: Blinding peer review
Michael A Taffe
Concealing the identity of the principal investigator only partially closes the success gap between white and African American or Black researchers in NIH grant applications.
Vasopressin: Predicting changes in osmolality
Zhe Yang et al.
Two neural circuits control the release of vasopressin in response to eating and drinking before there are any detectable changes in blood water levels.
Epidemiology and Global Health
Neonatal Weight: No fire without smoke (particles)
Stephanie M Holm, John Balmes
Pollution from landscape fires, which are increasing with climate change, leads to babies being born with lower birthweights in low- and middle-income countries.
Echolocation: The brain limit
Alexander J Werth, Joseph E Corbett
How fast the brain and muscles can respond to information about prey location constrains visual and echolocating predators in similar ways.
Statistics: Sex difference analyses under scrutiny
Colby J Vorland
A survey reveals that many researchers do not use appropriate statistical analyses to evaluate sex differences in biomedical research.
Cancer: Preventing collateral damage
Harry Quon, Fred Bunz
In pigs, nitrate supplements can protect salivary glands from the damage caused by radiation therapy to the head and neck.
Connectomes: Mapping the fly’s ‘brain in the brain’
Studying neurons and their connections in the central complex of the fruit fly reveals new insights into how their structure and function shape perception and behavior.
