    Membrane binding controls ordered self-assembly of animal septins

    Agata Szuba et al.
    Nanoscaleimaging reveals that animal septins form dense filamentous networks on biomimeticlipid membranes, explaining how septins may regulate cell surface rigidity.

    How oscillating aerodynamic forces explain the timbre of the hummingbird’s hum and other animals in flapping flight

    Ben J Hightower et al.
    A first-principles acoustics model reveals how the acoustic spectrum generated by flapping wings originates from oscillating aerodynamic forces, and is validated by in vivo aerodynamic force measurements and acoustic holography.

    Neural encoding of actual and imagined touch within human posterior parietal cortex

    Srinivas Chivukula et al.
    Single neurons in human posterior parietal cortex encode actual and imagined touch within a shared neural substrate.

    Dissociation of task engagement and arousal effects in auditory cortex and midbrain

    Daniela Saderi et al.
    Data collected from two important auditory brain areas distinguish effects of generalized arousal and specific task engagement on neural sensory coding.

    Cortical encoding of acoustic and linguistic rhythms in spoken narratives

    Cheng Luo, Nai Ding
    In the processing of spoken narratives, bottom-up acoustic cues and top-down linguistic knowledge separately contribute to neural construction of linguistic units.

    Diffusion-MRI-based regional cortical microstructure at birth for predicting neurodevelopmental outcomes of 2-year-olds

    Minhui Ouyang et al.
    Diffusion-MRI-based cerebral cortical microstructure encoding regionally differential dendritic arborization and synaptic formation at birth robustly predicts future 2-year-old cognitive and language outcomes with regionally heterogeneous contribution that exhibits functional selectivity.

    Natural ITD statistics predict human auditory spatial perception

    Rodrigo Pavão et al.
    Human brain has incorporated natural statistics of spatial cues to the neural code supporting perception of sound location.

    Cadherin clusters stabilized by a combination of specific and nonspecific cis-interactions

    Connor J Thompson et al.
    A combined experimental and computational approach was developed to understand lateral interactions between membrane-bound proteins and used to quantify the contributions of specific and non-specific interactions to cadherin cis-binding kinetics.

    Transformation of a temporal speech cue to a spatial neural code in human auditory cortex

    Neal P Fox et al.
    The human brain has a spatial code for representing temporal phonetic distinctions in speech.

    Temporal selectivity declines in the aging human auditory cortex

    Julia Erb et al.
    The aged human auditory cortex shows preserved tonotopy, but temporal modulations are represented with a markedly broader tuning, highlighting decreased temporal selectivity as a hallmark of the aging auditory cortex.
