    Epsin deficiency impairs endocytosis by stalling the actin-dependent invagination of endocytic clathrin-coated pits

    Mirko Messa et al.
    Epsin has a key role in the coupling of actin to endocytic clathrin coated pits that is required for their maturation and helps capture SNAREs at endocytic clathrin coated pits.

    Myosin motors fragment and compact membrane-bound actin filaments

    Sven K Vogel et al.
    A combination of single-molecule imaging and an in vitro model of the cell cortex has allowed the interactions between actin filaments and filaments made of myosin II to be studied in detail.

    Reciprocal action of Casein Kinase Iε on core planar polarity proteins regulates clustering and asymmetric localisation

    Helen Strutt et al.
    Casein kinase Iε phosphorylation has opposite effects on the stability of the core planar polarity proteins Strabismus and Dishevelled, leading to their sorting to opposite cell ends.

    Exophilin-8 assembles secretory granules for exocytosis in the actin cortex via interaction with RIM-BP2 and myosin-VIIa

    Fushun Fan et al.
    Analyses of knockout mice and a biochemical screen of interacting proteins reveal that exophilin-8 forms a large network of protein interactions to efficiently retain secretory granules beneath the plasma membrane for exocytosis.

    Sequential selection of economic good and action in medial frontal cortex of macaques during value-based decisions

    Xiaomo Chen, Veit Stuphorn
    Whenever monkeys are required to choose between multiple options, neural responses indicate that they first select the desired outcome and then use this information to guide their actions.

    Erk regulation of actin capping and bundling by Eps8 promotes cortex tension and leader bleb-based migration

    Jeremy S Logue et al.
    Eps8, a specific effector of oncogenic signaling, organizes the cortical actin cytoskeleton of cancer cells to promote mechanical properties that favor a newly identified mode of confined, adhesion-independent cell migration.

    Corticostriatal dynamics encode the refinement of specific behavioral variability during skill learning

    Fernando J Santos et al.
    Recordings from the mouse brain as animals learn a lever pressing task reveal how the motor system optimizes skill learning by reducing variability in those aspects of task performance that are essential for achieving a goal.

    Symmetry breaking in reconstituted actin cortices

    Enas Abu Shah, Kinneret Keren
    A reconstituted system has been developed that self-organizes into dynamic actin cortices capable of spontaneous polarization, similar to the initial cortical polarization observed in cells during embryogenesis and development.

    Orbital frontal cortex updates state-induced value change for decision-making

    Emily T Baltz et al.
    Orbital frontal cortex projection neuron activity is necessary to update state-dependent value change to control model-based behavior.

    Large and fast human pyramidal neurons associate with intelligence

    Natalia A Goriounova et al.
    Neurons from individuals with higher IQ scores have larger dendrites, are able to maintain faster action potentials, and thus process information more efficiently.
