    Resource depletion through primate stone technology

    Lydia V Luncz et al.
    Technology-driven overharvesting of marine prey influences tool selection pattern in long tailed macaques, posing a serious threat to their behavioural traditions.

    Stone Tool Use: Monkeys overharvest shellfish

    George H Perry, Brian F Codding
    The use of stone tools by macaques in Thailand has reduced the size and population density of coastal shellfish; previously it was thought that tool-assisted overharvesting effects resulted uniquely from human activity.

    Associations between sounds and actions in early auditory cortex of nonhuman primates

    Ying Huang et al.
    Early auditory cortex of nonhuman primates represents associations between sounds and actions, in both spiking activity and local field potentials.

    Group-specific archaeological signatures of stone tool use in wild macaques

    Lydia V Luncz et al.
    Tool behaviour of long-tailed macaques leaves archaeological signatures that differ between populations despite similar ecological conditions, highlighting the potential for diversity in material culture.

    Reconstruction of natural images from responses of primate retinal ganglion cells

    Nora Brackbill et al.
    The visual message conveyed by retinal neurons to the brain when signaling natural scenes resembles the individual receptive fields only when viewed in context of the neuronal population.

    Distinct spatiotemporal mechanisms underlie extra-classical receptive field modulation in macaque V1 microcircuits

    Christopher A Henry et al.
    The multiple component mechanisms of extra-classical receptive field modulation, with distinct dynamics, discovered in the monkey visual cortex have important implications for understanding contextual perceptual processing.

    Lipocalin-2 is an anorexigenic signal in primates

    Peristera-Ioanna Petropoulou et al.
    Lipocalin-2 is a strong predictor of hunger scores, reflects an anti-obesity response that is deregulated in severely obese subjects, and exerts an anorexigenic function with a conserved interspecies mechanism.

    A connectional hub in the rostral anterior cingulate cortex links areas of emotion and cognitive control

    Wei Tang et al.
    A hub in the rostral anterior cingulate cortex receives unusually high and functionally diverse inputs, providing a biological interface between motivation, incentive based learning, and decision making.

    Cerebellar climbing fibers encode expected reward size

    Noga Larry et al.
    Electrophysiological recordings in monkeys reveal that cerebellar complex spikes encode future reward size when reward information is first made available, but not during reward delivery or smooth pursuit eye movement.

    Soluble PD-L1 generated by endogenous retroelement exaptation is a receptor antagonist

    Kevin W Ng et al.
    An ancient integration of an endogenous retroelement in the gene encoding PD-L1 is exapted to generate a soluble form that antagonises the suppressive function of the membrane-bound form.
