    Tuning movement for sensing in an uncertain world

    Chen Chen et al.
    Animals work in a world full of surprises, where using energy to position sensors proportional to the location's expected information avoids the pitfalls of positioning them at the information maxima.

    Physical limits to magnetogenetics

    Markus Meister
    Recent reports on the ability of biological molecules to sense magnetic fields are found to be inconsistent with basic physical principles.

    Visuomotor learning from postdictive motor error

    Jana Masselink, Markus Lappe
    Visual, motor, and forward model gains learn from a postdictive update of space to keep perception and saccadic motor function aligned.

    Extrinsic and intrinsic dynamics in movement intermittency

    Damar Susilaradeya et al.
    The rhythmicity in upper-limb tracking movements and associated population dynamics in primary motor cortex is explained by a feedback controller incorporating optimal state estimation.

    Homeostatic reinforcement learning for integrating reward collection and physiological stability

    Mehdi Keramati, Boris Gutkin
    A mathematical model built around the assumption that the desire to maintain internal homeostasis drives the behavior of animals, by affecting their learning processes, can explain many real-world behaviors, including some that might otherwise appear irrational.

    A quantitative inventory of yeast P body proteins reveals principles of composition and specificity

    Wenmin Xing et al.
    Quantitative analyses of yeast P bodies reveals a small number of highly concentrated proteins and many weakly concentrated proteins, suggesting that the compartments are compositionally simpler than previously thought.

    Augmented reality powers a cognitive assistant for the blind

    Yang Liu et al.
    A non-invasive cognitive assistant for blind people endows objects in the environment with voices, allowing users to explore the scene, localize objects, and navigate through a building with minimal training.

    Metabolic constraints drive self-organization of specialized cell groups

    Sriram Varahan et al.
    In a developing yeast colony, cells go from homogeneous states to spatially organized, specialized metabolic states, and the new metabolic states depend on resources produced by the original state.

    Investigating the trade-off between folding and function in a multidomain Y-family DNA polymerase

    Xiakun Chu et al.
    The physical interaction network encoded in the multi-domain protein native structure handles the trade-off between the fast, stable folding and the efficient, reliable function.
