    Apical length governs computational diversity of layer 5 pyramidal neurons

    Alessandro R Galloni et al.
    Layer 5 pyramidal neurons vary substantially in dendritic excitability between primary and secondary visual cortex, likely due to a counterintuitive amplifying effect of long apical dendrites.

    TMAO, a seafood-derived molecule, produces diuresis and reduces mortality in heart failure rats

    Marta Gawrys-Kopczynska et al.
    Trimethylamine-oxide (TMAO), a molecule present in seafood, reduces mortality and exerts beneficial effects on the circulatory system in heart failure rats.

    Vestigial auriculomotor activity indicates the direction of auditory attention in humans

    Daniel J Strauss et al.
    Recordings of ear muscles in humans show that ears attempt to pivot in the direction that requires attention.

    Ant collective cognition allows for efficient navigation through disordered environments

    Aviram Gelblum et al.
    When real ants confront the classical 'Ant-in-a-labyrinth' physics problem where a random walker traverses a percolated environment, they employ active extended sensing and collective cognition to outperform passive physical solutions.

    Automated task training and longitudinal monitoring of mouse mesoscale cortical circuits using home cages

    Timothy H Murphy et al.
    A new methodology and protocol use automated brain imaging and task training technology to probe links between behavior and mouse cortical circuits.

    Alcids ‘fly’ at efficient Strouhal numbers in both air and water but vary stroke velocity and angle

    Anthony B Lapsansky et al.
    Four species of seabird produce efficient propulsive wakes while flying in the air and while swimming underwater suggesting that selection has optimized these species for locomotion in remarkably different fluids.

    Temperature compensation in a small rhythmic circuit

    Leandro M Alonso, Eve Marder
    Computational models demonstrate that circuit resilience to temperature perturbations are associated with smooth transitions between cellular mechanisms as the contributions of different currents are altered while activity is maintained.

    Interaction mapping of endoplasmic reticulum ubiquitin ligases identifies modulators of innate immune signalling

    Emma J Fenech et al.
    Interaction mapping of ubiquitin ligase complexes embedded in the endoplasmic reticulum membrane has identified interactors of RNF26 that influence innate immune signalling.

    Global sleep homeostasis reflects temporally and spatially integrated local cortical neuronal activity

    Christopher W Thomas et al.
    The global sleep homeostatic process tracks sleep-wake history by integrating local cortical neuronal activity over time and space, rather than directly reflecting changes in specific homeostatically regulated physiological variables.
