    The evolution of distributed sensing and collective computation in animal populations

    Andrew M Hein et al.
    A computational model shows that natural selection can cause populations to evolve a distinctive population-level phenotype: the ability to transition between collective states in response to the environment.

    Bottom-up and top-down computations in word- and face-selective cortex

    Kendrick N Kay, Jason D Yeatman
    A computational model reveals how response properties of category-selective regions in the visual cortex reflect both bottom-up stimulus-driven signals and top-down attentional signals from the parietal cortex.

    Computation identifies structural features that govern neuronal firing properties in slowly adapting touch receptors

    Daine R Lesniak et al.
    Computer simulations show that the firing patterns of branched touch receptors can be set in part by the organization of their sensory endings in the skin.

    Computational 3D histological phenotyping of whole zebrafish by X-ray histotomography

    Yifu Ding et al.
    X-ray histotomography produces the first 3-dimensional images with the combined submicron resolution, centimeter fields-of-view, soft-tissue contrast, and potential throughput to enable quantitative, histopathological and centimeter-scale phenotyping for whole-organism phenomics.

    Neural and computational processes underlying dynamic changes in self-esteem

    Geert-Jan Will et al.
    Self-esteem, the value that people ascribe to the self, is represented in the ventromedial prefrontal cortex and dynamically updated when people learn how others value them.

    Computational models of O-LM cells are recruited by low or high theta frequency inputs depending on h-channel distributions

    Vladislav Sekulić, Frances K Skinner
    The contribution of biophysical ion channels to neuron function can be predicted by taking advantage of an ongoing dialogue between model and experiment.
    1. Neuroscience

    Dendritic nonlinearities are tuned for efficient spike-based computations in cortical circuits

    Balázs B Ujfalussy et al.
    Dendrites combine the inputs that they receive from other neurons using calculations that have been optimized for those particular input patterns.
