    Timing mechanism of sexually dimorphic nervous system differentiation

    Laura Pereira et al.
    The timing of sexual differentiation in the brain of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is controlled by a phylogenetically conserved pathway of gene regulatory factors.

    Increasing suppression of saccade-related transients along the human visual hierarchy

    Tal Golan et al.
    Similar to spontaneous eye blinks perceptual stability, despite small saccades, is related to actively silencing transients in the high-level ends of both ventral and dorsal visual cortices, while activity in low-level visual cortex remains unstable.

    TP53 drives invasion through expression of its Δ133p53β variant

    Gilles Gadea et al.
    Clinical analysis corroborated with experimental data demonstrate that Δ133p53β, a naturally occurring isoform of p53 protein, induces a pro-metastatic program and is a clinical indicator of metastasis, independently of TP53 mutation status.

    A mutant with bilateral whisker to barrel inputs unveils somatosensory mapping rules in the cerebral cortex

    Nicolas Renier et al.
    The somatosensory cortex doesn't integrate mixed bilateral inputs, as partially uncrossing projections from the whiskers duplicates their representation by segregating lateralized inputs from each side of the head.
