    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.

    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.

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

    Philip Dammann et al.
    We are writing to comment on the article by Ruby et al., 2018 about aging in naked mole-rats.

    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.

  1. Research Culture: Career choices of underrepresented and female postdocs in the biomedical sciences

    W Marcus Lambert et al.
    Mentorship, financial security and a positive sense of self-worth increase the likelihood that underrepresented minority and female postdocs will pursue a career in academia.

    Real-time classification of experience-related ensemble spiking patterns for closed-loop applications

    Davide Ciliberti et al.
    A brain–computer interface for real-time identification of transient neural activity patterns enables causal inference of the role of these patterns in cognition through closed-loop manipulation.

    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.
