    Pregnancy-associated plasma protein-aa regulates endoplasmic reticulum–mitochondria associations

    Mroj Alassaf, Mary C Halloran
    An extracellular modulator of IGF1 signaling, Pappaa, regulates endoplasmic reticulum–mitochondria connections, which are critical for metabolic homeostasis and hair cell survival.

    Objective pupillometry shows that perceptual styles covary with autistic-like personality traits

    Chiara Tortelli et al.
    Pupillometry tracks individual differences linked with autistic traits independently of illusion susceptibility and perceptual reports.

    Integrative frontal-parietal dynamics supporting cognitive control

    Derek Evan Nee
    Analysis of human fMRI data reveal that intermediary areas within the fronto-parietal control network (FPCN) are critical for integrating control processing, cognitive ability, and amenability to neuromodulation.

    Intact synapse structure and function after combined knockout of PTPδ, PTPσ, and LAR

    Javier Emperador-Melero et al.
    Leukocyte common antigen-related receptor protein tyrosine phosphatases (LAR-RPTPs) are precisely localized to synaptic appositions, but do not control the assembly and function of the presynaptic nerve terminal.

    Anatomy and activity patterns in a multifunctional motor neuron and its surrounding circuits

    Mária Ashaber et al.
    Voltage-dye imaging followed by serial blockface electron microscopy of the same ganglion reveals structure–function relationships of leech motor behaviors.

    Sub-minute prediction of brain temperature based on sleep–wake state in the mouse

    Yaniv Sela et al.
    The sleep–wake state sequence explains almost all of the variance in brain temperature in the mouse, and its detailed dynamics can be accurately predicted only using sleep–wake information.

    Identifying molecular features that are associated with biological function of intrinsically disordered protein regions

    Taraneh Zarin et al.
    A statistical model systematically associates functions of intrinsically disordered regions with sequence-distributed molecular features such as charge, residue composition, or repeat content.

    The temporal and spectral characteristics of expectations and prediction errors in pain and thermoception

    Andreas Strube et al.
    Key variables required for pain perception in the context of a predictive coding model are correlated with distinct oscillatory profiles.
