    Neural evidence accumulation persists after choice to inform metacognitive judgments

    Peter R Murphy et al.
    Error detection is contingent on the continuation of evidence accumulation after choice commitment, and the speed and accuracy of this process are modulated by high-level signals from medial frontal cortex.

    Cascade of neural processing orchestrates cognitive control in human frontal cortex

    Hanlin Tang et al.
    A dynamic and hierarchical sequence of steps in human frontal cortex orchestrates cognitive control.

    Distinct mechanisms regulating mechanical force-induced Ca2+ signals at the plasma membrane and the ER in human MSCs

    Tae-Jin Kim et al.
    Deep penetration and transmission of mechanical force to regulate ER functions depends on not only the passive cytoskeletal support, but also the active actomyosin contractility, which is dispensable for mechanotransduction at the plasma membrane.

    The GTPase IFT27 is involved in both anterograde and retrograde intraflagellar transport

    Diego Huet et al.
    A small GTPase within the flagellum can participate in the control of transport from the base to the tip of the flagellum, and back again.

    The ER–Golgi intermediate compartment is a key membrane source for the LC3 lipidation step of autophagosome biogenesis

    Liang Ge et al.
    A cell-free biochemical assay for protein lipidation identifies the ER–Golgi intermediate compartment as a key early station in the formation of an autophagosome.

    RNA-programmed genome editing in human cells

    Martin Jinek et al.
    A bacterial protein can be programmed with short RNA molecules to stimulate genome editing at specific sites in human cells.

    Ovulation in Drosophila is controlled by secretory cells of the female reproductive tract

    Jianjun Sun, Allan C Spradling
    Secretory cells in the fruit fly reproductive tract produce secretions that control ovulation through a conserved mechanism that could provide insights into ovarian cancer.

    Presynaptic APP levels and synaptic homeostasis are regulated by Akt phosphorylation of huntingtin

    Julie Bruyère et al.
    Reducing Akt-mediated huntingtin phosphorylation decreases APP accumulation at the synapse by reducing its anterograde axonal transport and ameliorates learning and memory in a mouse model of familial Alzheimer disease.

    Mechanisms of competitive selection: A canonical neural circuit framework

    Shreesh P Mysore, Ninad B Kothari
    A first principles, neuro-computational framework proposes a path for the experimental dissection of neural circuit mechanisms of competitive selection across brain areas and animal species.

    Dopaminergic modulation of the exploration/exploitation trade-off in human decision-making

    Karima Chakroun et al.
    Dopamine attenuates exploration during decision-making via a reduction of neural tracking of uncertainty.
