    Somatic mutations in early metazoan genes disrupt regulatory links between unicellular and multicellular genes in cancer

    Anna S Trigos et al.
    Cancer is a consequence of the release of basal cellular functions inherited from our unicellular ancestors from the control of regulatory networks that evolved during the emergence of multicellularity.

    Adaptation of olfactory receptor abundances for efficient coding

    Tiberiu Teşileanu et al.
    A model of efficient coding by olfactory neurons explains context-dependence observed in the effect of perturbations to the olfactory environment.

    Structures in multiple conformations reveal distinct transition metal and proton pathways in an Nramp transporter

    Aaron T Bozzi et al.
    Nramp-family transporters adapt a common fold to a novel mechanism in which the spatial and temporal separation of like-charge transition metal and proton co-substrates circumvents the expected electrostatic repulsion.
  3. eLife Ambassadors: An invitation to take part in 2019

    The eLife Early-Career Advisory Group open applications for researchers who wish to join the second edition of the community advocacy programme.

    Visualization of currents in neural models with similar behavior and different conductance densities

    Leandro M Alonso, Eve Marder
    Visualization methods display the dynamics of the currents in conductance-based model neurons, and show how their contribution changes in response to perturbation.

    Control of entropy in neural models of environmental state

    Timothy H Muller et al.
    Evidence for neuromodulatory control of flexibility in human neural models.
  4. eLife Ambassadors: Reflections on a successful trial

    Early-career researchers involved in the pilot year of the new community scheme delivered results exceeding all expectations.

    Impaired voice processing in reward and salience circuits predicts social communication in children with autism

    Daniel Arthur Abrams et al.
    Children with autism often 'tune out' the voices in their environment and new results show that impaired processing of voices in the brain's reward system may underlie this social behavior.
