Facing discrepancies in the sensory environment, multisensory information is combined in the medial superior parietal cortex to guide immediate judgements and to also adjust subsequent unisensory perception.
Short homology arms exposed by CRISPR/Cas9 cleavage can target integration at genomic CRISPR/Cas9 cut sites at high frequencies with reproducible precision using pGTag vectors in zebrafish and mammalian cells.
Social-interaction impairment in germ-free mice is associated with a markedly altered transcriptional response to social novelty in the amygdala, as characterised by replacement of upregulation of common stimulus-induced pathways with upregulation of the splicing machinery.
Analysis of human fMRI data reveal that intermediary areas within the fronto-parietal control network (FPCN) are critical for integrating control processing, cognitive ability, and amenability to neuromodulation.
Sterol kinetics and cell-based assays reveal a heretofore unknown step in cholesterol trafficking through the endolysosomal compartment, involving a direct functional interaction between NPC2 and lysosbisphosphatidic acid.
Snout-to-snout contact modulates the response of rat auditory cortex to calls from other animals, indicating that the multisensory nature of social interaction is directly represented in the rat brain.
