    Timing of the reticular lamina and basilar membrane vibration in living gerbil cochleae

    Wenxuan He et al.
    Heterodyne low-coherence interferometry demonstrates that the latency of the sound-induced reticular lamina vibration is significantly greater than that of the basilar membrane vibration in living gerbil cochleae.

    Time preferences are reliable across time-horizons and verbal versus experiential tasks

    Evgeniya Lukinova et al.
    People have stable time-preferences regardless of whether they are measured using a non-verbal experiential task, as is typical in animal experiments, or using a more traditional verbal task.

    Chromocenters: Bundling up DNA

    Susan A Gerbi
    Structures known as chromocenters, comprising satellite DNA and proteins such as D1 or HMGA1, help to contain DNA inside the nucleus between cell divisions.

    The number of olfactory stimuli that humans can discriminate is still unknown

    Richard C Gerkin, Jason B Castro
    The recent claim that humans can discriminate more than one trillion odors is shown to be unwarranted.

    Modular transcriptional programs separately define axon and dendrite connectivity

    Yerbol Z Kurmangaliyev et al.
    Diverse morphologies of Drosophila T4/T5 neuronal subtypes are defined by the modular assembly of transcriptional programs for distinct wiring features.

    Schwann cells, but not Oligodendrocytes, Depend Strictly on Dynamin 2 Function

    Daniel Gerber et al.
    In the peripheral nervous system, the large GTPase dynamin 2 is required for Schwann cell survival, developmental radial sorting of axons, myelination, and myelin maintenance.

    Inhibitory control of correlated intrinsic variability in cortical networks

    Carsen Stringer et al.
    A new cortical network model fit directly to multi-neuron recordings reveals that local inhibitory feedback can control neural dynamics, modulate brain state and enhance sensory processing.

    Signal integration at spherical bushy cells enhances representation of temporal structure but limits its range

    Christian Keine et al.
    Inhibition reduces the neuronal representation of acoustic signals to enhance temporal precision in the auditory brainstem.

    Developmental deprivation-induced perceptual and cortical processing deficits in awake-behaving animals

    Justin D Yao, Dan H Sanes
    Developmental hearing loss causes perceptual deficits that are best explained by degraded auditory cortical encoding that is recorded during task performance.

    The frequency limit of outer hair cell motility measured in vivo

    Anna Vavakou et al.
    The cells in our inner ear commonly believed to provide fast mechanical feedback are too sluggish to follow the vibrations evoked by high-frequency sounds.
