    Revealing the structure of information flows discriminates similar animal social behaviors

    Gabriele Valentini et al.
    Information theory reveals that apparently similar signaling behaviors in ants and termites are instead governed by distinct communication protocols explaining their underlying different functions.

    Efficient sampling and noisy decisions

    Joseph A Heng et al.
    An efficient coding theory for higher-level cognitive processes reveals that humans efficiently adapt to contextual distributions by economizing on environmental prior information.

    Microsaccadic sampling of moving image information provides Drosophila hyperacute vision

    Mikko Juusola et al.
    New experiments and theory reveal how the ability to see image details depends upon photoreceptor function and eye movements, and how fruit flies (Drosophila) see spatial details beyond the optical limit of their compound eyes.

    Maximally informative foraging by Caenorhabditis elegans

    Adam J Calhoun et al.
    C. elegans foraging efficiently approximate maximally informative search strategies that involve abrupt switching between different types of behaviors.

    Limits on information transduction through amplitude and frequency regulation of transcription factor activity

    Anders S Hansen, Erin K O'Shea
    The ability of cells to transmit information encoded in signaling dynamics is fundamentally limited by the gene decoding step.

    Deciphering the regulatory genome of Escherichia coli, one hundred promoters at a time

    William T Ireland et al.
    A combination of massively parallel reporter assays and mass spectrometry uncovers the regulation of previously unexplored promoters across the Escherichia coli genome.

    Dynamic filopodia are required for chemokine-dependent intracellular polarization during guided cell migration in vivo

    Dana Meyen et al.
    Functional analysis of filopodia by specific interference with their formation and distribution reveals a critical role in conferring intracellular polarity and in controlling the dynamic properties of chemokine-guided cell migration in vivo.

    The return to water in ancestral Xenopus was accompanied by a novel mechanism for producing and shaping vocal signals

    Ursula Kwong-Brown et al.
    When ancestral Xenopus returned to water ~170mya, they evolved a new method for producing courtship calls underwater without airflow, using vibrations that also preserve essential acoustic information on species identity.

    Why plants make puzzle cells, and how their shape emerges

    Aleksandra Sapala et al.
    Puzzle-shape cells in the epidermis of many plants form due to a development constraint based on mechanical forces.

    Image content is more important than Bouma’s Law for scene metamers

    Thomas SA Wallis et al.
    Peripheral appearance models emphasising pooling processes that depend on retinal eccentricity will instead need to explore input-dependent grouping and segmentation.
