    A transformation from temporal to ensemble coding in a model of piriform cortex

    Merav Stern et al.
    A spiking network model that examines the transformation of odor information from olfactory bulb to piriform cortex demonstrates how intrinsic cortical circuitry preserves representations of odor identity across odorant concentrations.

    Spike-timing-dependent ensemble encoding by non-classically responsive cortical neurons

    Michele N Insanally et al.
    During behavior, many neurons do not have classic trial-averaged responses to behaviorally relevant stimuli, but can still have activity and population dynamics related to stimulus and behavioral choice on single trials.

    Odor identity coding by distributed ensembles of neurons in the mouse olfactory cortex

    Benjamin Roland et al.
    In vivo calcium imaging reveals how odor identity is encoded in the activity of large, distributed ensembles of olfactory cortex neurons in mice.

    Phasic and tonic neuron ensemble codes for stimulus-environment conjunctions in the lateral entorhinal cortex

    Maryna Pilkiw et al.
    Neuron populations in the lateral entorhinal cortex discriminate between memory-based contexts through both continuous "tonic" activity patterns as well as by their stimulus-evoked "phasic" responses.

    A spike sorting toolbox for up to thousands of electrodes validated with ground truth recordings in vitro and in vivo

    Pierre Yger et al.
    A spike sorting toolbox to quickly and reliably access the activity of thousands of neurons recorded with dense extracellular probes.

    Rat anterior cingulate cortex recalls features of remote reward locations after disfavoured reinforcements

    Ali Mashhoori et al.
    The anterior cingulate cortex intermixes a precise spatial map with a cognitive map of the task, and spontaneously recalls multimodal information about unrealized choice outcomes during pauses in behavior after reinforcements.

    Philosophy of Biology: The analysis of living systems can generate both knowledge and illusions

    Antony M Jose
    By thinking about experimental techniques in terms of six broad approaches – perturbation, visualization, substitution, characterization, reconstitution, and simulation – researchers may be able to generate more reliable inferences.

    Vision: Framing orientation selectivity

    Floris P de Lange, Matthias Ekman
    The ongoing debate on the neural basis of orientation selectivity in the primary visual cortex continues.

    2018 Gairdner Awards: The past, present and future of light-gated ion channels and optogenetics

    Sheena A Josselyn
    Research into light-gated ion channels called channelrhodospins laid the foundations for the development of optogenetics, a technique that has gone on to revolutionize neuroscience.
