    Foggy perception slows us down

    Paolo Pretto et al.
    Virtual reality experiments show that motorists slow down when driving in fog, but they speed up when visibility is reduced equally at all distances.

    RecA filament sliding on DNA facilitates homology search

    Kaushik Ragunathan et al.
    A DNA–protein complex can find target sequences of bases in another DNA molecule by sliding along it.
    1. Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics

    Modelling dynamics in protein crystal structures by ensemble refinement

    B Tom Burnley et al.
    A combination of molecular dynamics simulations and X-ray diffraction data has been used to construct more realistic models of proteins and to provide new insights into their interactions with other proteins and biomolecules.
    1. Neuroscience

    Quantification of gait parameters in freely walking wild type and sensory deprived Drosophila melanogaster

    César S Mendes et al.
    Novel imaging experiments suggest that fruit flies modify their neural circuitry for walking at slow, medium and fast speeds, and that proprioception is not essential for coordinated walking.
    1. Neuroscience

    Changing the responses of cortical neurons from sub- to suprathreshold using single spikes in vivo

    Verena Pawlak et al.
    Changing the order in which presynaptic and postsynaptic cells are repeatedly activated can change what a mammalian visual cortex neuron communicates to downstream neurons.
    1. Immunology and Inflammation

    Dendritic cells loaded with FK506 kill T cells in an antigen-specific manner and prevent autoimmunity in vivo

    Dana E Orange et al.
    By using immune cells called dendritic cells to deliver drugs, it is possible to target and kill specific members of another class of immune cell, known as T cells, and to prevent these cells from attacking the body's own tissues in cases of autoimmune disease.

    Recognition of familiar food activates feeding via an endocrine serotonin signal in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Bo-mi Song et al.
    The nematode worm C. elegans consumes familiar bacterial species more rapidly than it does novel ones, and this preference for familiarity is mediated by a pair of serotonergic neurons.
    1. Neuroscience

    Hierarchical organization of context in the hippocampal episodic code

    Susumu Takahashi
    Neurons in the hippocampus modulate the rates at which they fire, and the locations in which they fire, so as to encode the information that is central to forming memories about personal experiences.
    1. Neuroscience

    Selection of distinct populations of dentate granule cells in response to inputs as a mechanism for pattern separation in mice

    Wei Deng et al.
    By using different groups of cells to represent distinct environments and events, the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus helps to keep memories of similar events separate.
