    1. Neuroscience

    Vocal and locomotor coordination develops in association with the autonomic nervous system

    Morgan L Gustison et al.
    Marmoset monkeys develop their vocal behavior prior to their postural and locomotor skills, but the coordination of these two motor systems emerges gradually via changes in arousal level.
    1. Human Biology and Medicine

    Meta-Research: Gender variations in citation distributions in medicine are very small and due to self-citation and journal prestige

    Jens Peter Andersen et al.
    In studies of gender disparities in academia, increased focus is required on within-group variability and between-group overlap of distributions when interpreting and reporting results.
  1. Early-Career Advisory Group: Welcoming six new members

    The newly appointed members of the group significantly increase its diversity and inject new energy in their efforts to improve the academic culture for early-career scientists.
    1. Evolutionary Biology
    2. Genetics and Genomics

    Ancient origins of arthropod moulting pathway components

    André Luiz de Oliveira et al.
    Evolutionary reconstruction of the ecdysis pathway shows that its major elements are present in the majority of metazoans, providing evidence that they originated much earlier than currently assumed.
  2. Early-Career Advisory Group: A review of 2018–2019

    The group reflects on the past year and looks forward to continuing its efforts to catalyse change in science.
    1. Developmental Biology

    Single-cell sequencing of neonatal uterus reveals an Misr2+ endometrial progenitor indispensable for fertility

    Hatice Duygu Saatcioglu et al.
    Single-cell RNA sequencing of neonatal uterus revealed an Misr2+ endometrial stromal progenitor whose inhibition by ectopic administration of MIS caused uterine hypoplasia and infertility in adulthood.
  3. Annual Report: 2018 in review

    We reflect on eLife’s achievements in continuing to improve peer review, transforming technology for academic publishing, and supporting communities for open science.
    1. Neuroscience

    Network-wide abnormalities explain memory variability in hippocampal amnesia

    Georgios PD Argyropoulos et al.
    Hippocampal damage is associated with changes across the extended hippocampal system, and these may explain variability in memory between patients presenting with hippocampal amnesia.
  4. Peer Review: Further results from a trial at eLife

    New approach to peer review results in slightly longer decision times and more appeals against decisions, but several other features of the review process, such as the ease of finding reviewers, remain unchanged.
  5. A paralyzed bee buried with a wasp egg

    Episode 59: June 2019

    In this episode, we hear about the emerging field of palaeoshellomics, wasp eggs that keep their food fresh, a monkey with a missing visual cortex, new biological methods inspired by astronomy and how to mix a family with a research career.
