    The cerebellum linearly encodes whisker position during voluntary movement

    Susu Chen et al.
    Cerebellar Purkinje cells represent movements via bidirectional linear changes in spike rate, and activity from single cells is sufficient to reconstruct kinematic changes during bouts of free whisking.

    Signaling Systems: Transferring information without distortion

    Steven S Andrews et al.
    Despite employing diverse molecular mechanisms, many different cell signaling systems avoid losing information by transmitting it in a linear manner.

    Signaling pathways as linear transmitters

    Harry Nunns, Lea Goentoro
    Mathematical and experimental analyses suggest that despite their complex architectures, multiple metazoan signaling pathways act in physiological contexts as linear signal transmitters.

    Feedforward motor information enhances somatosensory responses and sharpens angular tuning of rat S1 barrel cortex neurons

    Mohamed Khateb et al.
    Primary motor cortex afferents supra-linearly amplify the responses and sharpen angular tuning of neurons in the S1 barrel cortex.
  1. Research: Publication bias and the canonization of false facts

    Silas Boye Nissen et al.
    Publication bias, in which positive results are preferentially reported by authors and published by journals, can restrict the visibility of evidence against false claims and allow such claims to be canonized inappropriately as facts.

    Evolution: Of starch and spit

    Mareike C Janiak
    Animals living alongside humans have multiple copies of the gene for alpha-amylase, the enzyme that breaks down starchy foods, and high levels of this protein in their saliva.
