    DMT alters cortical travelling waves

    Andrea Alamia et al.
    Psychedelics induce a pattern of cortical activity very similar to the one observed during visual perception, despite participants had shut eyes.

    Population response magnitude variation in inferotemporal cortex predicts image memorability

    Andrew Jaegle et al.
    Population response magnitude predicts how well an image will be remembered, in both monkey inferotemporal cortex and neural networks trained to categorize objects.

    Efficient and accurate extraction of in vivo calcium signals from microendoscopic video data

    Pengcheng Zhou et al.
    A new open-source computational toolbox for processing in vivo microendoscopic calcium imaging data performs signal demixing and denoising much more accurately than previously available methods, significantly improving the utility of this imaging modality.

    Extensive cargo identification reveals distinct biological roles of the 12 importin pathways

    Makoto Kimura et al.
    Transport-based high-throughput identification of cargo proteins specific to all 12 human importin-β family nuclear import receptors revealed biological processes that the cargo cohorts of each receptor are involved in.

    A physical model describing the interaction of nuclear transport receptors with FG nucleoporin domain assemblies

    Raphael Zahn et al.
    A homopolymer-sphere model is shown to accurately reproduce the interactions that underpin selective gating of macromolecular transport into and out of the cell nucleus.

    Characterizing a psychiatric symptom dimension related to deficits in goal-directed control

    Claire M Gillan et al.
    A dimensional approach to psychiatry demonstrates the specificity and generalizability of a neurocognitive marker of compulsive behavior and intrusive thought via large-scale online testing.

    A decentralised neural model explaining optimal integration of navigational strategies in insects

    Xuelong Sun et al.
    The first biology-constrained neural model of insect navigation guidance systems was explained including path integration, visual homing and route following, and their optimal coordination.
    1. Neuroscience

    Invariant representations of mass in the human brain

    Sarah Schwettmann et al.
    A network of brain regions implicated in physical inference represents abstract, generalizable variables used as inputs to physics engines.

    Training deep neural density estimators to identify mechanistic models of neural dynamics

    Pedro J Gonçalves et al.
    Deep neural networks can be trained to automatically find mechanistic models which quantitatively agree with experimental data, providing new opportunities for building and visualizing interpretable models of neural dynamics.
