    Skill learning strengthens cortical representations of motor sequences

    Tobias Wiestler, Jörn Diedrichsen
    Detailed analysis of fMRI data shows that sequences of movements are associated with individual patterns of neural activity that become more distinct with training.

    A corticostriatal deficit promotes temporal distortion of automatic action in ageing

    Miriam Matamales et al.
    Acquisition of behavioral sequences in normally aged mice involves short and unusually fast patterns of action, some of which are reproduced by striatal circuitry manipulations in young mice and can be transitorily restored through action-related feedback.

    Consolidation alters motor sequence-specific distributed representations

    Basile Pinsard et al.
    The consolidation of newly acquired motor skills induces a functional reorganization of sequential information representations within secondary motor cortex, basal ganglia and hippocampus.

    Point of View: Predictive regulation and human design

    Peter Sterling
    Why does the human regulatory system, which evolution tuned for small satisfactions, now constantly demand 'more'?

    Sleep: Shifting memories

    Hong-Viet V Ngo, Bernhard P Staresina
    A region of the brain called the putamen has a central role in memory consolidation during sleep.

    Learning: How the cerebellum learns to build a sequence

    Reza Shadmehr
    Rabbits can learn the biological analogue of a simple recursive function by relying only on the neurons of the cerebellum.

    RNA-Binding Proteins: A matter of balance

    Aaron D Gitler, John D Fryer
    New analyses shift the view that some forms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia are due to defects in a single RNA-binding protein.

    Principles of cellular resource allocation revealed by condition-dependent proteome profiling

    Eyal Metzl-Raz et al.
    Steadily growing cells prepare for conditions that demand increased translation by producing excess ribosomes, at the expense of lower steady-state growth rate.

    Lognormal firing rate distribution reveals prominent fluctuation–driven regime in spinal motor networks

    Peter C Petersen, Rune W Berg
    Neuronal participation in generation of motor patterns in the spinal circuits is lognormal, which is an indication of a rich diversity of activity within the mean-driven as well as the fluctuation-driven regimes.
