    Signal integration at spherical bushy cells enhances representation of temporal structure but limits its range

    Christian Keine et al.
    Inhibition reduces the neuronal representation of acoustic signals to enhance temporal precision in the auditory brainstem.

    Inhibition in the auditory brainstem enhances signal representation and regulates gain in complex acoustic environments

    Christian Keine et al.
    Inhibition in the brainstem has further roles beyond temporal sharpening and improves reproduction for a multitude of sounds.

    Sound localization: These are not the neurons you are looking for

    Victor Benichoux, Daniel J Tollin
    Studies that looked into how the auditory brainstem processes the difference in the intensity of a sound as it reaches each ear may have wrongly assumed which neurons were being recorded.

    Timing of the reticular lamina and basilar membrane vibration in living gerbil cochleae

    Wenxuan He et al.
    Heterodyne low-coherence interferometry demonstrates that the latency of the sound-induced reticular lamina vibration is significantly greater than that of the basilar membrane vibration in living gerbil cochleae.

    Independent amylase gene copy number bursts correlate with dietary preferences in mammals

    Petar Pajic et al.
    Comprehensive analyses of amylase duplications and salivary activity across mammals underscore the importance of recurrent copy number variation as a flexible and rapid evolutionary mechanism.

    Developmental deprivation-induced perceptual and cortical processing deficits in awake-behaving animals

    Justin D Yao, Dan H Sanes
    Developmental hearing loss causes perceptual deficits that are best explained by degraded auditory cortical encoding that is recorded during task performance.

    Principal cells of the brainstem’s interaural sound level detector are temporal differentiators rather than integrators

    Tom P Franken et al.
    Principal neurons of the brainstem nucleus comparing sound level at the two ears do not have the slow response properties previously attributed to them, but are instead specialized for fast weighing of excitation and inhibition.

    A striatal-enriched intronic GPCR modulates huntingtin levels and toxicity

    Yuwei Yao et al.
    A cell-surface receptor called Gpr52 is able to lower the levels of the disease-causing protein mutant huntingtin and suppress its toxicity when knocked-down, making this receptor a promising drug target in Huntington's disease.

    Stiffness and tension gradients of the hair cell’s tip-link complex in the mammalian cochlea

    Mélanie Tobin et al.
    The tip-link complex of the hair cell is mechanically tuned along the tonotopic axis of the cochlea.

    A century of trends in adult human height

    NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC)
    Height in early adulthood is an indicator that integrates across different dimensions of sustainable human development with links to health and longevity, nutrition, education and economic productivity.
