  1. Brain patterns can predict speech of words and syllables

    Neurons in the ‘hand knob’ area of the motor cortex become active during speech and could hold the key to restoring speech to people who have lost the ability.
  2. Media Coverage: November roundup of eLife papers in the news

    High-profile news coverage that eLife papers generated in November 2019, including BBC News, The New York Times and National Geographic.
  3. How a cellular shuttle helps HIV-1 spread in immune organs

    Researchers have identified a mechanism for HIV-1 spreading that involves viral particles being loaded from one type of cell onto an immune cell network.
  4. Scientists outline 10 simple rules for the computational modelling of behavioural data

    The guidelines are designed to help researchers avoid many potential pitfalls in the computational modelling of cognitive and neuroscience data.
  5. Did human hunting activities alone drive great auks’ extinction?

    Analysis of ancient DNA from an extinct seabird demonstrates that even abundant and widespread species can be vulnerable to intense exploitation.
  6. Scientists dissect and redesign protein-based pattern formation

    Dissecting self-organising protein systems step by step may help scientists design the process of biological pattern formation from minimal ingredients.
  7. Media Coverage: October roundup of eLife papers in the news

    High-profile news coverage that eLife papers generated in October 2019, including BBC, Fox News and the New York Post.
  8. Study reveals ‘bug wars’ that take place in cystic fibrosis

    The secrets of how individual bacterial cells respond when they meet another species have been revealed, providing insights for treating cystic fibrosis.
  9. Scientists identify immune cells linked to malaria-induced anaemia through autoantibody production

    Anaemia in malaria patients is likely caused by an autoimmune attack on uninfected red blood cells, suggesting a new approach to treating this deadly side effect.
  10. Scientists shed new light on neural processes behind learning and motor behaviours

    The discovery that the cerebral cortex can directly control activities of globus pallidus neurons, which are associated with voluntary movement, could improve our understanding of why some symptoms occur in Parkinson’s and other diseases.
