    A universal reading network and its modulation by writing system and reading ability in French and Chinese children

    Xiaoxia Feng et al.
    A cross-cultural study of reading acquisition and reading irmpairment reveals the invariance of the neural correlates of reading across cultures.

    Invariant representations of mass in the human brain

    Sarah Schwettmann et al.
    A network of brain regions implicated in physical inference represents abstract, generalizable variables used as inputs to physics engines.

    Learning place cells, grid cells and invariances with excitatory and inhibitory plasticity

    Simon Nikolaus Weber, Henning Sprekeler
    A large variety of spatial representations implied in rodent navigation could arise robustly and rapidly from inputs with a weak spatial structure, by an interaction of excitatory and inhibitory synaptic plasticity.

    Emergence of transformation-tolerant representations of visual objects in rat lateral extrastriate cortex

    Sina Tafazoli et al.
    Neuronal recordings from rat visual cortex reveal an object-processing pathway, along which neuronal representations become increasingly capable of supporting recognition of visual objects in spite of variation in their appearance.

    Encoding sensory and motor patterns as time-invariant trajectories in recurrent neural networks

    Vishwa Goudar, Dean V Buonomano
    A recurrent network model trained to transcribe temporally scaled spoken digits into handwritten digits proposes that the brain flexibly encodes time-varying stimuli as neural trajectories that can be traversed at different speeds.

    Genetic interactions affecting human gene expression identified by variance association mapping

    Andrew Anand Brown et al.
    Multiple replicated examples of epistasis affecting gene expression in humans are identified, some explaining a substantial proportion of the variation in expression.

    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.

    Olfactory receptor neurons use gain control and complementary kinetics to encode intermittent odorant stimuli

    Srinivas Gorur-Shandilya et al.
    Olfactory receptor neurons adapt to odorant mean and variance and use complementary kinetics to preserve the timing of odorant encounters, despite adaptation slowing down transduction.

    Shape-invariant encoding of dynamic primate facial expressions in human perception

    Nick Taubert et al.
    Contrasting with neural network theories, a study of the cross-species perception of dynamic faces with highly realistic human and monkey avatars reveals independent perceptual encoding of facial shape and expression.

    The dorsomedial prefrontal cortex computes task-invariant relative subjective value for self and other

    Matthew Piva et al.
    Activity in the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex encodes relative subjective value in a common neural code across decision-making for self and other and across tasks with divergent cognitive requirements.
