    Ten simple rules for the computational modeling of behavioral data

    Robert C Wilson, Anne GE Collins
    Computational modeling of cognitive and neuroscience data is an insightful and powerful tool, but has many potential pitfalls that can be avoided by following simple guidelines.

    Causal contribution and dynamical encoding in the striatum during evidence accumulation

    Michael M Yartsev et al.
    Behavioral, pharmacological, optogenetic, electrophysiological and computational analyses suggest that the anterior dorsal striatum is a causal node in the network responsible for evidence accumulation.

    Individual crop loads provide local control for collective food intake in ant colonies

    Efrat Esther Greenwald et al.
    Colony satiation level determines the unloading rate of laden foragers, which, in turn, rely on their own food load to adjust their foraging effort.

    Biologically plausible learning in recurrent neural networks reproduces neural dynamics observed during cognitive tasks

    Thomas Miconi
    A biologically plausible learning rule allows recurrent neural networks to learn nontrivial tasks, using only sparse, delayed rewards, and the neural dynamics of trained networks exhibit complex dynamics observed in animal frontal cortices.

    Unified single-cell analysis of testis gene regulation and pathology in five mouse strains

    Min Jung et al.
    A statistical method for summarizing single-cell gene expression data identifies normal and disease-specific transcriptional programs from an atlas of 57,600 cells.

    Post-decision processing in primate prefrontal cortex influences subsequent choices on an auditory decision-making task

    Joji Tsunada et al.
    A behavioral model, neuronal recordings, and electrical microstimulation reveal that the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex plays a causal role in evaluating prior decisions and biasing future decisions.

    Zygotic pioneer factor activity of Odd-paired/Zic is necessary for late function of the Drosophila segmentation network

    Isabella V Soluri et al.
    Mechanisms for shaping the chromatin accessibility landscape operate during development to regulate how embryonic patterning information is interpreted at the level of gene regulatory networks.

    Removal of inhibition uncovers latent movement potential during preparation

    Uday K Jagadisan, Neeraj J Gandhi
    Non-invasive disinhibition of the oculomotor system shows that ongoing preparatory activity in the superior colliculus has movement-generating potential and need not rise to threshold in order to produce a saccade.

    A locally-blazed ant trail achieves efficient collective navigation despite limited information

    Ehud Fonio et al.
    Ants employ a new kind of trail to resolve group-level navigational difficulties in scenarios where the information available to individuals does not suffice.

    Emergence of transformation-tolerant representations of visual objects in rat lateral extrastriate cortex

    Sina Tafazoli et al.
    Neuronal recordings from rat visual cortex reveal an object-processing pathway, along which neuronal representations become increasingly capable of supporting recognition of visual objects in spite of variation in their appearance.
