    Dendritic nonlinearities are tuned for efficient spike-based computations in cortical circuits

    Balázs B Ujfalussy et al.
    Dendrites combine the inputs that they receive from other neurons using calculations that have been optimized for those particular input patterns.

    Multiplexed coding by cerebellar Purkinje neurons

    Sungho Hong et al.
    Cerebellar Purkinje neurons use a multiplexed simple spike code combining synchrony/spike time and firing rate, with each component encoding distinct information about movements such as motion onset timing and kinematics.

    Signaling pathways as linear transmitters

    Harry Nunns, Lea Goentoro
    Mathematical and experimental analyses suggest that despite their complex architectures, multiple metazoan signaling pathways act in physiological contexts as linear signal transmitters.

    Divisive suppression explains high-precision firing and contrast adaptation in retinal ganglion cells

    Yuwei Cui et al.
    The convergence of two visual pathways at the level of retinal bipolar cells accounts for key features of ganglion cell responses.

    Estimating and interpreting nonlinear receptive field of sensory neural responses with deep neural network models

    Menoua Keshishian et al.
    A comprehensive, data-driven and interpretable nonlinear computational modeling framework based on deep neural networks uncovers different nonlinear transformations of speech signal in the human auditory cortex.

    Inferring synaptic inputs from spikes with a conductance-based neural encoding model

    Kenneth W Latimer et al.
    The conductance-based encoding model creates a new bridge between statistical models and biophysical models of neurons, and infers visually-evoked excitatory and inhibitory synaptic conductances from spike trains in macaque retina.

    Impaired voice processing in reward and salience circuits predicts social communication in children with autism

    Daniel Arthur Abrams et al.
    Children with autism often 'tune out' the voices in their environment and new results show that impaired processing of voices in the brain's reward system may underlie this social behavior.

    Attentional modulation of neuronal variability in circuit models of cortex

    Tatjana Kanashiro et al.
    Attention reduces noise correlations through enhancing inhibitory feedback in cortical networks.

    Sodium channels implement a molecular leaky integrator that detects action potentials and regulates neuronal firing

    Marco A Navarro et al.
    Kinetic interactions between sodium channels and auxiliary factors create a molecular computational engine that can sense and regulate cellular excitability.

    Slow presynaptic mechanisms that mediate adaptation in the olfactory pathway of Drosophila

    Carlotta Martelli, André Fiala
    Slow presynaptic depression in olfactory receptor neurons rescales combinatorial odor representations in postsynaptic neurons and mediates the encoding of stimulus mean and variance.
