    A Dynamic molecular basis for malfunction in disease mutants of p97/VCP

    Anne K Schuetz, Lewis E Kay
    Point mutations in a ubiquitous human ATPase called p97/VCP deregulate inter-domain communication, resulting in impaired binding of an adaptor that recruits p97 to endosomal pathways and leading to a degenerative disease of bone, muscle and neurons.

    ATP-induced asymmetric pre-protein folding as a driver of protein translocation through the Sec machinery

    Robin A Corey et al.
    How the process of protein folding may be controlled by the Sec machinery to assist protein transport across membranes.

    Helix breaking transition in the S4 of HCN channel is critical for hyperpolarization-dependent gating

    Marina A Kasimova et al.
    The gating polarity of a voltage-gated ion channel is primarily determined by turn propensity of residues at a critical position in the middle of the S4 voltage-sensing helix.

    Statistical learning attenuates visual activity only for attended stimuli

    David Richter, Floris P de Lange
    Prior expectations, induced by statistical learning, affect sensory processing only for attended stimuli, thereby constraining neurocomputational theories that cast perception as an inferential process integrating prior knowledge and sensory evidence.

    Multiple mechanisms link prestimulus neural oscillations to sensory responses

    Luca Iemi et al.
    Neural oscillations prior to a stimulus modulate the strength of early and late responses in opposite directions via distinct mechanisms.

    Electrostatic lateral interactions drive ESCRT-III heteropolymer assembly

    Sudeep Banjade et al.
    ESCRT-III heteropolymers utilize non-specific lateral electrostatic interactions to recognize one another, which may enable the polymers to slide along one another and adapt to different curvatures.

    Response to comment on 'Valid molecular dynamics simulations of human hemoglobin require a surprisingly large box size'

    Krystel El Hage et al.
    We are writing to respond to the comment by Gapsys and de Groot, 2019 on our article about molecular dynamics simulations of human hemoglobin (El Hage et al., 2018).

    The hippocampus supports deliberation during value-based decisions

    Akram Bakkour et al.
    The deliberation involved in simple preference decisions, such as those between two familiar snacks, depends on the hippocampus.
