    Decoding gripping force based on local field potentials recorded from subthalamic nucleus in humans

    Huiling Tan et al.
    Patterns of coordinated activity in the basal ganglia predict how much force we will use to grip objects, suggesting that individuals with paralysis may ultimately be able to use these signals to control graded responses in robotic devices.

    Synthetic single domain antibodies for the conformational trapping of membrane proteins

    Iwan Zimmermann et al.
    Synthetic single domain antibody libraries and a binder selection cascade encompassing ribosome and phage display enable the selection of conformation-specific binders against previously intractable membrane proteins within three weeks.

    Serial grouping of 2D-image regions with object-based attention in humans

    Danique Jeurissen et al.
    The human visual system groups the individual features of objects together into a coherent whole via a serial, attention-demanding process.

    Unusual prism adaptation reveals how grasping is controlled

    Willemijn D Schot et al.
    Adapting single-digit movements in opposite directions makes people open their grip in accordance with the adaptations of the individual digits, showing that grip aperture arises from goal-directed movements of the digits rather than being controlled independently.

    Selective and regulated trapping of nicotinic receptor weak base ligands and relevance to smoking cessation

    Anitha P Govind et al.
    The smoking cessation drug varenicline (Chantix) and other weak base ligands reduce a4b2-type nicotinic receptor (a4b2R) upregulation through slow intracellular release due to selective trapping in acidic vesicles that contain a4b2Rs.

    Object vision to hand action in macaque parietal, premotor, and motor cortices

    Stefan Schaffelhofer, Hansjörg Scherberger
    The cortical grasping circuit separates but shares visual and motor processes to transform object attributes into appropriate hand movements.

    Structural dynamics of E. coli single-stranded DNA binding protein reveal DNA wrapping and unwrapping pathways

    Sukrit Suksombat et al.
    Single-molecule force and fluorescence spectroscopy reveal the structural states and dynamics of E. coli single-stranded DNA binding proteins and the energy landscape of the nucleo–protein complex.

    Climate-mediated cooperation promotes niche expansion in burying beetles

    Syuan-Jyun Sun et al.
    Cooperation enables burying beetles to outcompete flies and adapt to a wider range of temperatures as thermal generalists.
