    Global sleep homeostasis reflects temporally and spatially integrated local cortical neuronal activity

    Christopher W Thomas et al.
    The global sleep homeostatic process tracks sleep-wake history by integrating local cortical neuronal activity over time and space, rather than directly reflecting changes in specific homeostatically regulated physiological variables.

    Brain states govern the spatio-temporal dynamics of resting-state functional connectivity

    Felipe Aedo-Jury et al.
    Distinct brain states govern resting state functional architecture revealed by neurophysiologically defined simultaneous optic-fiber-based calcium recordings and task-free functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in rats.

    Effective control of SARS-CoV-2 transmission between healthcare workers during a period of diminished community prevalence of COVID-19

    Nick K Jones et al.
    Diminished incidence of COVID-19 amongst healthcare workers in a comprehensive screening programme demonstrates how effective infection control measures and staff testing can prevent hospitals becoming independent 'hubs' of SARS-CoV-2 transmission.

    Activin A forms a non-signaling complex with ACVR1 and type II Activin/BMP receptors via its finger 2 tip loop

    Senem Aykul et al.
    The non-signaling complex formed by Activin A and ACVR1 is operant in vivo and is required to temper the degree of heterotopic ossification in the genetic disorder fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva.

    Paranoia as a deficit in non-social belief updating

    Erin J Reed et al.
    Paranoia is underwritten by variation in prior beliefs about how the world will change and how to learn from those changes.

    HA stabilization promotes replication and transmission of swine H1N1 gamma influenza viruses in ferrets

    Meng Hu et al.
    Infection experiments in ferrets reveal swine influenza viruses need their hemagglutinin antigen to become stabilized for transmissibility, adding a new property to consider when triaging field isolates for pandemic potential.

    Synergy between SIRT1 and SIRT6 helps recognize DNA breaks and potentiates the DNA damage response and repair in humans and mice

    Fanbiao Meng et al.
    SIRT1 deacetylates SIRT6 at K33 to facilitate DNA double-strand breaks-recognition, subsequent expansion and local chromatin remodeling.

    Inhibition stabilization is a widespread property of cortical networks

    Alessandro Sanzeni et al.
    The strongly coupled theoretical regime describes the function of mouse sensory and motor cortical areas.

    A Tgfbr1/Snai1-dependent developmental module at the core of vertebrate axial elongation

    André Dias et al.
    During vertebrate axial extension, the tail bud originates from the activation of a developmental module in a subset of axial progenitors, concurrent but different to gastrulation.
