    Oxytocin modulates human chemosensory decoding of sex in a dose-dependent manner

    Kepu Chen et al.
    Oxytocin, but not the structurally similar vasopressin, modulates both the chemosensory decoding of femininity in straight men and that of masculinity in gay men in an inverted-U-shaped manner.

    Determining the probability of hemiplasy in the presence of incomplete lineage sorting and introgression

    Mark S Hibbins et al.
    Introgression makes hemiplasy more likely, and the probability of hemiplasy incorporating incomplete lineage sorting (ILS) and introgression can be estimated using the presented simulation software.
  1. Research Culture: A survey of early-career researchers in Australia

    Katherine Christian et al.
    Job insecurity is putting stress on early-career researchers in Australia, compromising their career development and potentially reducing the quality of research.

    High-fidelity musculoskeletal modeling reveals that motor planning variability contributes to the speed-accuracy tradeoff

    Mazen Al Borno et al.
    The speed-accuracy tradeoff could be a consequence of motor planning variability and not exclusively signal-dependent noise, as is currently held.

    Abstract rules drive adaptation in the subcortical sensory pathway

    Alejandro Tabas et al.
    Representations in the subcortical sensory pathway do not only adapt to stimulus properties but also rely on the observer’s subjective model of the world.

    SlitC-PlexinA1 mediates iterative inhibition for orderly passage of spinal commissural axons through the floor plate

    Hugo Ducuing et al.
    A combination of in vivo models and imaging techniques reveals the distribution of guidance cues and their mechanisms of action during commissural axon navigation of intermediate target.

    Developing a theoretical evolutionary framework to solve the mystery of parturition initiation

    Antonis Rokas et al.
    This review considers the evolutionary processes and physiological mechanisms that maintain or end pregnancy in mammals to formulate general, testable theoretical models that provide insights into the biology of parturition.

    Neuronal hyperexcitability is a DLK-dependent trigger of herpes simplex virus reactivation that can be induced by IL-1

    Sean R Cuddy et al.
    Herpes simplex virus reactivates from a latent infection when neurons become hyperexcitable in response to an inflammatory cytokine known to be released during fever and stress.

    Recent shifts in the genomic ancestry of Mexican Americans may alter the genetic architecture of biomedical traits

    Melissa L Spear et al.
    Admixture dynamics have recently changed over time in Mexican Americans resulting in an impact on the genetic architecture of phenotypic variation.

    The brain in motion: How ensemble fluidity drives memory-updating and flexibility

    William Mau et al.
    Ensemble fluidity, observed as synaptic turnover and temporal drift in neuronal patterns, supports memory-updating and flexibility while maintaining memory stability.
