    Cortex-wide BOLD fMRI activity reflects locally-recorded slow oscillation-associated calcium waves

    Miriam Schwalm et al.
    Locally recorded calcium events related to slow wave activity show a global cortical fMRI BOLD correlate, establishing a direct relation between a basic neurophysiological signal and the macroscopic perspective of pre-clinical fMRI.

    Induced sensorimotor cortex plasticity remediates chronic treatment-resistant visual neglect

    Jacinta O'Shea et al.
    Tonic disinhibition of left motor cortex during prism adaptation enhanced consolidation of sensorimotor and cognitive prism after effects, causing lasting clinical gains in three patient cases with chronic treatment-resistant visual neglect.

    Rapid stimulus-driven modulation of slow ocular position drifts

    Tatiana Malevich et al.
    Slow, continuous changes in eye position when gaze is fixed, previously believed to be random drifts, are shown to exhibit highly systematic and short-latency response characteristics to visual stimuli.

    The heritability of multi-modal connectivity in human brain activity

    Giles L Colclough et al.
    Genes play an important role in determining the strength of functional connectivity in the human brain, and seem to outweigh the contribution from the developmental environment.

    Centering and symmetry breaking in confined contracting actomyosin networks

    Niv Ierushalmi et al.
    Novel mechanisms for cellular centering and symmetry breaking involving persistent contractile actomyosin flows and their hydrodynamic interactions with the fluid cytosol are presented and studied using a minimal, reconstituted system.

    Comment on "Magnetosensitive neurons mediate geomagnetic orientation in Caenorhabditis elegans"

    Lukas Landler et al.
    Employing blinded controlled methodology we find no evidence for a magnetic sense in the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Codon usage bias controls mRNA and protein abundance in trypanosomatids

    Laura Jeacock et al.
    Global relative mRNA and protein abundance in trypanosomatids can be effectively estimated at transcriptomic and proteomic scales based on protein-coding sequences alone.

    Combinatorial programming of human neuronal progenitors using magnetically-guided stoichiometric mRNA delivery

    Sayyed M Azimi et al.
    A technology allows rapid screening of vast numbers of transcriptional factor combinatorials on stem cell programming.

    Magnetothermal genetic deep brain stimulation of motor behaviors in awake, freely moving mice

    Rahul Munshi et al.
    Magnetothermal neuromodulation providing quick, tetherless, precise on and off switching of neurons deep in the brain of freely moving animals is orthogonal to optogenetics and a breakthrough in remote modulation techniques.

    A neural command circuit for grooming movement control

    Stefanie Hampel et al.
    The identification of a neural circuit that drives a specific grooming movement in Drosophila reveals that it may also control movement parameters, such as duration.
