    A role for descending auditory cortical projections in songbird vocal learning

    Yael Mandelblat-Cerf et al.
    Midbrain dopaminergic neurons and a cortex-like structure called the arcopallium form part of a circuit that enables young songbirds to compare their own song with a template stored in memory, and use any discrepancies to improve their performance.

    Human premotor areas parse sequences into their spatial and temporal features

    Katja Kornysheva, Jörn Diedrichsen
    Neuroimaging provides novel insights into how the motor system represents sequences of actions by automatically separating their spatial and temporal features for flexible skill production.

    Voluntary and involuntary contributions to perceptually guided saccadic choices resolved with millisecond precision

    Emilio Salinas et al.
    Looking away from a salient visual stimulus pits the reflexive urge to look toward it against the voluntary intention not to, and this conflict is resolved within tens of milliseconds.

    Inhibition of PIP4Kγ ameliorates the pathological effects of mutant huntingtin protein

    Ismael Al-Ramahi et al.
    This work validates PIP4K gamma as pharmacological target to ameliorate Huntington's disease.
    1. Neuroscience

    Theta oscillations locked to intended actions rhythmically modulate perception

    Alice Tomassini et al.
    Theta oscillations synchronize perception with the emerging motor intention in an automatic and task-independent way.
    1. Neuroscience

    Distinct roles of visual, parietal, and frontal motor cortices in memory-guided sensorimotor decisions

    Michael J Goard et al.
    Visual, parietal, and frontal motor cortices play distinct and necessary roles in mapping sensory features to future motor action.
    1. Developmental Biology

    Transient inhibition of the ERK pathway prevents cerebellar developmental defects and improves long-term motor functions in murine models of neurofibromatosis type 1

    Edward Kim et al.
    Nf1 is required during early, but not late, cerebellar development to facilitate neuronal lamination, providing a potential therapeutic prevention strategy for NF1-associated developmental abnormalities.
    1. Neuroscience

    A critical re-evaluation of fMRI signatures of motor sequence learning

    Eva Berlot et al.
    A systematic assessment of previously proposed fMRI metrics of motor sequence learning reveals widespread activity reductions and subtle multivariate pattern changes outside of primary motor cortex.
    1. Neuroscience

    Sensory coding and the causal impact of mouse cortex in a visual decision

    Peter Zatka-Haas et al.
    Local sensory signals in visual and frontal cortex play a causal role in task performance, while widespread dorsal cortical signals correlating with movement reflect processes that do not.
    1. Neuroscience

    The organizational principles of de-differentiated topographic maps in somatosensory cortex

    Peng Liu et al.
    SI topographic finger maps of older adults show signs of cortical aging but do not show classical hallmarks of cortical de-differentiation.
