    Naked mole-rat mortality rates defy Gompertzian laws by not increasing with age

    J Graham Ruby et al.
    Unlike all other mammals studied to date, the age-specific risk of mortality for naked mole-rats did not increase over decades of life, identifying this species as a non-aging mammal.

    Life Expectancy: Age is just a number

    Hiram Beltrán-Sánchez, Caleb Finch
    The naked mole rat defies the Gompertz law and shows no sign of increased mortality risk as it gets older.

    Mice deficient of Myc super-enhancer region reveal differential control mechanism between normal and pathological growth

    Kashyap Dave et al.
    A tumor-specific regulatory region has been identified upstream of the Myc oncogene.

    Adaptive tuning of mutation rates allows fast response to lethal stress in Escherichia coli

    Toon Swings et al.
    Population mutation rates are highly flexible and evolvable under extreme stress conditions, matching changes in selective pressure to avoid extinction of the entire population.

    An aging-independent replicative lifespan in a symmetrically dividing eukaryote

    Eric C Spivey et al.
    A high throughput, full lifespan microscopic analysis reveals that fission yeast does not age but has a finite replicative lifespan.

    Flexible theta sequence compression mediated via phase precessing interneurons

    Angus Chadwick et al.
    A new model for phase precession accounts for theta sequence generation, suggests critical roles for interneurons, and predicts circuit properties to optimise memory storage.

    Present-day central African forest is a legacy of the 19th century human history

    Julie Morin-Rivat et al.
    The cessation of major anthropogenic disturbances since European colonization in the forests of central Africa leads to a canopy closing, and to the disappearance of certain light-demanding tree species.

    Phenotypic plasticity as an adaptation to a functional trade-off

    Xiao Yi, Antony M Dean
    A plastic behavior in Escherichia coli is enabled by a single amino acid replacement in adaption to changing environments.

    VTA neurons coordinate with the hippocampal reactivation of spatial experience

    Stephen N Gomperts et al.
    During quiet wakefulness but not slow wave sleep, reward modulated VTA neurons coordinate selectively with hippocampal replay sequences and are biased in their timing towards the reactivated representation of reward locations.
