Science Forum: Ten common statistical mistakes to watch out for when writing or reviewing a manuscript
Tamar R Makin, Jean-Jacques Orban de Xivry
What can authors and reviewers do to keep common statistical mistakes out of the literature?
Computational and Systems Biology
Point of View: Biological causal links on physiological and evolutionary time scales
Amit Karmon, Yitzhak Pilpel
Increasing awareness that many causal links in biology might be bi-directional could overcome biases and improve scientific reasoning.
Recalibrating timing behavior via expected covariance between temporal cues
Benjamin J De Corte et al.
Rats act as if they expect that the delays associated with temporal cues will covary due to a common causal factor.
Philosophy of Biology: Philosophical bias is the one bias that science cannot avoid
Fredrik Andersen et al.
Scientists should be aware of the non-empirical assumptions that influence all kinds of research.
Transient oxytocin signaling primes the development and function of excitatory hippocampal neurons
Silvia Ripamonti et al.
Perturbation of oxytocin signaling causes alterations that may be causally involved in the etiology of oxytocin-related neurobehavioral disorders.
Control of adaptive action selection by secondary motor cortex during flexible visual categorization
Tian-Yi Wang et al.
The secondary motor cortex causally contributes to flexible action selection during stimulus categorization with the representations of upcoming choice and sensory history regulated by the demand to remap stimulus–action association.
Optogenetics: Exciting inhibition in primates
Wim Vanduffel, Xiaolian Li
A new genetic marker enables precise control over a group of inhibitory neurons in monkeys.
The Natural History of Model Organisms:
, an 'instant' fish from an ephemeral habitat
Martin Reichard, Matej Polačik
The turquoise killifish from ephemeral pools in African savannah combines extremely short lifespan with a standard vertebrate body plan – ideal attributes for a laboratory animal.
Behavior: The cerebellum shows its stripes
Ashley L Holloway, Talia N Lerner
New studies examine how the different sub-structures in the cerebellum are organized to receive information during complex behavioral tasks.
Science Forum: RIPOSTE: a framework for improving the design and analysis of laboratory-based research
Nicholas GD Masca et al.
The RIPOSTE framework has been developed to support early and regular discussions between scientists and statisticians in order to improve the design, conduct and analysis of laboratory studies.
