    Heterogeneous contributions of change in population distribution of body mass index to change in obesity and underweight

    NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC)
    Changes in the prevalence of underweight, total obesity, and severe obesity are largely driven by shifts in the distribution of body mass index.

    Value-based attentional capture affects multi-alternative decision making

    Sebastian Gluth et al.
    Speeded value-based decisions between two options can be affected by a third, high-value distractor that captures attention and slows down the choice process.

    Learning the specific quality of taste reinforcement in larval Drosophila

    Michael Schleyer et al.
    The finding that fly maggots, equipped with only 10,000 neurons, process reinforcement not only by value but also by specific quality reveals a basic operating principle of brains and challenges current models of memory organization.

    Uncovering the computational mechanisms underlying many-alternative choice

    Armin W Thomas et al.
    A comparison of different computational models reveals that looking behavior, during value-based choices from 9, 16, 25, or 36 snack foods, actively influences the subjective values of the available alternatives.

    Serotonin signaling mediates protein valuation and aging

    Jennifer Ro et al.
    Serotonin modulates diet-dependent lifespan in flies.

    Structure in the variability of the basic reproductive number (R0) for Zika epidemics in the Pacific islands

    Clara Champagne et al.
    Stochastic models able to reproduce both incidence and seroprevalence data for Zika outbreaks in the Pacific Islands estimate that the basic reproduction number (R0) is between 1.5 and 4.1.

    An integrative study of five biological clocks in somatic and mental health

    Rick Jansen et al.
    An integrative study of five biological clocks in somatic and mental health indicate that one's biological age is best reflected by combining aging measures from multiple cellular levels.

    Determining the genetic basis of anthracycline-cardiotoxicity by molecular response QTL mapping in induced cardiomyocytes

    David A Knowles et al.
    Genetic variants that modulate transcriptomic response to doxorubicin in human iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes are predictive of cardiac damage and in vivo sensitivity to anthracycline cardiotoxicity.

    'Palaeoshellomics’ reveals the use of freshwater mother-of-pearl in prehistory

    Jorune Sakalauskaite et al.
    Ancient proteomes from tiny shell ornaments were successfully characterised for the first time, showing the unexpected use of mother-of-pearl from local riverine molluscs in both coastal and inland prehistoric sites.

    Variable prediction accuracy of polygenic scores within an ancestry group

    Hakhamanesh Mostafavi et al.
    The prediction accuracies of polygenic scores in humans vary depending on the characteristics of the samples, as well as based on the study design, within a single ancestry group.
