    A genetic link between discriminative fear coding by the lateral amygdala, dopamine, and fear generalization

    Graham L Jones et al.
    Discrimination of predictive and non-predictive fear stimuli requires plasticity in the lateral amygdala that is regulated by midbrain dopamine neurons.
    1. Neuroscience

    Cortical response states for enhanced sensory discrimination

    Diego A Gutnisky et al.
    Enhanced perceptual discrimination occurs when ongoing population activity in visual cortex is in a 'silent' mode in which neurons optimize information extraction.

    Infectious polymorphic toxins delivered by outer membrane exchange discriminate kin in myxobacteria

    Christopher N Vassallo et al.
    Serial cell-to-cell transfer of lipoprotein toxins by outer membrane exchange provides a potent platform for kin discrimination in Myxococcus xanthus.
    1. Neuroscience

    Intraneural stimulation elicits discrimination of textural features by artificial fingertip in intact and amputee humans

    Calogero Maria Oddo et al.
    Delivering specific patterns of electrical activity to the median nerve of the arm triggers reliable sensations of texture, suggesting that it may ultimately be possible to restore complex tactile information to users of prosthetic limbs.
    1. Neuroscience

    Synaptic input sequence discrimination on behavioral timescales mediated by reaction-diffusion chemistry in dendrites

    Upinder Singh Bhalla
    The powerful computational operation of sequence recognition on behavioral timescales of approximately 1 s may emerge from synaptic activity-triggered build-up of biochemical waves in short 20 micron zones on dendrites.
    1. Neuroscience

    Oxytocin signaling in the medial amygdala is required for sex discrimination of social cues

    Shenqin Yao et al.
    Oxytocin signaling plays a critical role in a molecularly defined neuronal population of the Medial Amygdala to modulate the behavioral and physiological responses of male mice to females on a moment-to-moment basis.

    Discriminative stimuli are sufficient for incubation of cocaine craving

    Rajtarun Madangopal et al.
    Stimuli signaling reward availability potentiate and control relapse for up to 300 days of abstinence following cocaine, but not food, self-administration in rats.
    1. Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics

    Ligand discrimination and gating in cyclic nucleotide-gated ion channels from apo and partial agonist-bound cryo-EM structures

    Jan Rheinberger et al.
    High resolution SthK channel cryo-EM structures in different ligand-bound states combined with single-channel functional data in the same conditions constrain a gating mechanism for CNG channels.

    Auditory experience controls the maturation of song discrimination and sexual response in Drosophila

    Xiaodong Li et al.
    Auditory experience of a species-specific courtship song in developing Drosophila tunes adult song perception and resultant sexual behavior more selective.

    Focal optogenetic suppression in macaque area MT biases direction discrimination and decision confidence, but only transiently

    Christopher R Fetsch et al.
    Perceptual decision making in monkeys can be manipulated by using optogenetics to inactivate functional subregions of visual cortex, but the brain has a capacity to compensate for this perturbation.
