    Conceptual metaphorical mapping in chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes)

    Christoph D Dahl, Ikuma Adachi
    The use of metaphorical concepts is not unique to humans.

    Brian 2, an intuitive and efficient neural simulator

    Marcel Stimberg et al.
    Brian 2 is a software package for neural simulations that makes it both easy and computationally efficient to define original models for computational experiment.

    Intrinsically regulated learning is modulated by synaptic dopamine signaling

    Pablo Ripollés et al.
    Dopamine modulates behavioral measures of learning and pleasantness in a learning task guided by intrinsic reward, inducing long-term memory benefits specially in those participants with a high sensitivity to reward.

    miR-9 regulates basal ganglia-dependent developmental vocal learning and adult vocal performance in songbirds

    Zhimin Shi et al.
    Gene manipulation combined with behavior analysis reveals a role of miR-9 in modulating basal-ganglia-dependent developmental vocal learning and adult vocal performance via regulating the FOXP1/FOXP2 gene network and dopamine signaling in songbirds.
  1. Meta-Research: Large-scale language analysis of peer review reports

    Ivan Buljan et al.
    The linguistic characteristics of peer review reports are not influenced by research area, type of review or reviewer gender, which is evidence for the robustness of peer review.

    Specific lexico-semantic predictions are associated with unique spatial and temporal patterns of neural activity

    Lin Wang et al.
    The prediction of specific words is associated with distinct spatial and temporal patterns of neural activity within the left inferior and medial temporal regions before the predicted word is presented.

    Gaps in global wildlife trade monitoring leave amphibians vulnerable

    Alice C Hughes et al.
    Almost 98% of amphibian species have no regulation on their international trade, yet as 17% (1215 species) are in trade with 45% of individuals coming from the wild, including 445 Endangered/Data Deficient species, this poses a risk to species survival.

    Diffusion-MRI-based regional cortical microstructure at birth for predicting neurodevelopmental outcomes of 2-year-olds

    Minhui Ouyang et al.
    Diffusion-MRI-based cerebral cortical microstructure encoding regionally differential dendritic arborization and synaptic formation at birth robustly predicts future 2-year-old cognitive and language outcomes with regionally heterogeneous contribution that exhibits functional selectivity.
  2. Plain-language Summaries of Research: An inside guide to eLife digests

    Stuart RF King et al.
    After summarizing over 2,400 articles in plain language, the eLife Features team shares what it has learnt about writing and editing for a broad audience.

    Point of View: Hypothesis, analysis and synthesis, it's all Greek to me

    Ioannis Iliopoulos et al.
    Many scientific terms have been borrowed from ancient languages, but their modern usage often overlooks their etymology, as do many new terms coined by scientists.
