    Contributions of local speech encoding and functional connectivity to audio-visual speech perception

    Bruno L Giordano et al.
    Seeing a speaker's face aids comprehension by facilitating functional connectivity between the temporal and frontal lobes.

    Intraneural stimulation elicits discrimination of textural features by artificial fingertip in intact and amputee humans

    Calogero Maria Oddo et al.
    Delivering specific patterns of electrical activity to the median nerve of the arm triggers reliable sensations of texture, suggesting that it may ultimately be possible to restore complex tactile information to users of prosthetic limbs.

    Intraflagellar transport drives flagellar surface motility

    Sheng Min Shih et al.
    The transport of proteins along flagellar microtubules generates the force that enables flagella to propel cells across surfaces.

    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.

    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.

    A subcortical circuit linking the cerebellum to the basal ganglia engaged in vocal learning

    Ludivine Pidoux et al.
    The cerebellum sends a functional input to the song-related basal ganglia via the thalamus in songbirds that can modify premotor activity, and it participates to song learning in juvenile birds.

    The presynaptic ribbon maintains vesicle populations at the hair cell afferent fiber synapse

    Lars Becker et al.
    The auditory hair cell synaptic ribbon maintains vesicle pools near release sites in order to support sustained and timed vesicle release.

    Otoferlin acts as a Ca2+ sensor for vesicle fusion and vesicle pool replenishment at auditory hair cell ribbon synapses

    Nicolas Michalski et al.
    Targeted mutations in a Ca2+-binding site of otoferlin, a transmembrane protein of synaptic vesicles defective in a recessive form of deafness, reveal its Ca2+ sensor role both for vesicle fusion and vesicle pool replenishment.

    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.

    Frontal cortex selects representations of the talker’s mouth to aid in speech perception

    Muge Ozker et al.
    During speech perception, if auditory speech is not informative the frontal cortex will enhance responses in visual regions that represent the mouth of the talker to improve perception.
