    Moderate nucleotide diversity in the Atlantic herring is associated with a low mutation rate

    Chungang Feng et al.
    The Atlantic herring has the lowest mutation rate yet estimated in a vertebrate species and this partially explains its moderate nucleotide diversity given the large population size.

    A Gata3–Mafb transcriptional network directs post-synaptic differentiation in synapses specialized for hearing

    Wei-Ming Yu et al.
    Genetic studies in mice identify the transcription factor MafB as a potent regulator of specific features of the synapses underlying hearing.

    Cell non-autonomous functions of S100a4 drive fibrotic tendon healing

    Jessica E Ackerman et al.
    Inhibition of S100a4 represents a novel anti-fibrotic target to improve tendon healing.

    Angular velocity integration in a fly heading circuit

    Daniel Turner-Evans et al.
    A distinctive recurrent network motif in the Drosophila central brain enables neurons that encode angular velocity to shift population activity in compass neurons, thereby updating their heading representation whenever the fly turns.

    Role of visual and non-visual cues in constructing a rotation-invariant representation of heading in parietal cortex

    Adhira Sunkara et al.
    Visual information (optic flow) can be used to discount self-generated rotations and aid in the accurate representation of heading.

    Independent representations of ipsilateral and contralateral limbs in primary motor cortex

    Ethan A Heming et al.
    Neural recordings demonstrate how information about the contralateral limb can be isolated from the ipsilateral limb in motor cortex.

    Primed Track, high-fidelity lineage tracing in mouse pre-implantation embryos using primed conversion of photoconvertible proteins

    Maaike Welling et al.
    Primed Track is an image analysis tool that allows for computational correction of drifting specimen to enable accurate lineage tracing of mammalian pre-implantation development even for larger imaging time intervals.

    Rapid categorization of natural face images in the infant right hemisphere

    Adélaïde de Heering, Bruno Rossion
    Diverse photographs of human faces against their natural background trigger a specific electrical response in the right hemisphere of the brain in infants aged 4–6 months.

    Designed α-sheet peptides inhibit amyloid formation by targeting toxic oligomers

    Gene Hopping et al.
    Novel designed alpha-sheet peptides inhibit amyloidosis in two different systems and preferentially bind the toxic oligomer.

    Genome-wide Estrogen Receptor-α activation is sustained, not cyclical

    Andrew N Holding et al.
    Activation of the Estrogen Receptor by estra-2-diol results in sustained binding and the previously described cyclical response kinetics are likely an artefact of observing a highly variable process without replicates.
