    The influence of evidence volatility on choice, reaction time and confidence in a perceptual decision

    Ariel Zylberberg et al.
    A single framework of bounded evidence accumulation resolves the seemingly paradoxical effects of noise on accuracy, reaction time and confidence.

    Distinct roles of nonmuscle myosin II isoforms for establishing tension and elasticity during cell morphodynamics

    Kai Weißenbruch et al.
    The mechanical response of adherent cells in structured environments is shown to be shaped by the intricate interplay between the three different isoforms of an essential molecular motor.

    Bridging the gap between single-cell migration and collective dynamics

    Florian Thüroff et al.
    A computational model, based on single-cell features like contractility and polarizability, quantitatively describes cellular dynamics from the single cell level up to small cohorts and confluent tissues.

    Cellular cartography of the organ of Corti based on optical tissue clearing and machine learning

    Shinji Urata et al.
    A method of generating comprehensive maps of cochlear cells was created and enabled researchers to study characteristics of cellular damage in aged and noise-exposed inner ear.

    Place-cell capacity and volatility with grid-like inputs

    Man Yi Yim et al.
    A very large number of place-field maps can be robustly learned by association of external cues with the grid-driven response, however plasticity in the grid-cell inputs renders the place-cell responses volatile.

    Dendritic nonlinearities are tuned for efficient spike-based computations in cortical circuits

    Balázs B Ujfalussy et al.
    Dendrites combine the inputs that they receive from other neurons using calculations that have been optimized for those particular input patterns.

    Assembly and positioning of actomyosin rings by contractility and planar cell polarity

    Ivonne M Sehring et al.
    Contractility wins over the polarity pathway in a tug-of-war to position a cytokinesis-like actomyosin ring at the equator of notochord cells.

    A quadratic model captures the human V1 response to variations in chromatic direction and contrast

    Michael A Barnett et al.
    A quantitative forward model captures fMRI responses to chromatic stimuli in human primary visual cortex and quantifies how chromatic sensitivity changes with eccentricity.

    Arabidopsis plants perform arithmetic division to prevent starvation at night

    Antonio Scialdone et al.
    Plants implement arithmetic division to optimize use of carbohydrate reserves and thus maintain metabolism and growth at night.

    Ventrolateral periaqueductal gray neurons prioritize threat probability over fear output

    Kristina M Wright, Michael A McDannald
    Single-unit activity in the ventrolateral periaqueductal gray, a brain region implicated in organizing fear output, is found to reflect threat probability, a more versatile threat signal.
