    Hyperalignment: Modeling shared information encoded in idiosyncratic cortical topographies

    James V Haxby et al.
    Hyperalignment provides a conceptual framework for cortical architecture that captures how shared information is encoded in idiosyncratic cortical topographies that preserve vector geometry for population response and connectivity patterns.

    The hazards of smoking and the benefits of cessation: a critical summation of the epidemiological evidence in high-income countries

    Prabhat Jha
    Cumulatively, from 1950 to 2015, smoking-related disease has been the biggest cause of premature death in high-income countries, with elevated risks of smoking continuing well into the 21st century.

    Understanding the glioblastoma immune microenvironment as basis for the development of new immunotherapeutic strategies

    Ana Rita Pombo Antunes et al.
    The heterogeneity of immune cell types in glioblastoma tumors depends on the tumor's genetic make-up and treatment status and is an incompletely mined source of novel therapeutic targets.
