    Asymmetric ON-OFF processing of visual motion cancels variability induced by the structure of natural scenes

    Juyue Chen et al.
    The fruit fly estimates visual motion by incorporating ON-OFF asymmetric processing that only improves performance when stimuli have light-dark asymmetries matched to natural scenes.

    The transcription factor Pou3f1 promotes neural fate commitment via activation of neural lineage genes and inhibition of external signaling pathways

    Qingqing Zhu et al.
    The transcription factor Pou3f1 triggers embryonic stem cells to become neuronal progenitor cells in two ways: by activating the expression of pro-neuronal genes and by blocking external inhibitory signaling cascades.

    The lawful imprecision of human surface tilt estimation in natural scenes

    Seha Kim, Johannes Burge
    Human tilt estimation in natural scenes is predicted by an image-computable Bayes optimal model that is grounded in the statistics of natural images and scenes.

    Natural genetic variation in Arabidopsis thaliana defense metabolism genes modulates field fitness

    Rachel Kerwin et al.
    Environmental heterogeneity may contribute to the high levels of genetic variation in glucosinolate genes found in Arabidopsis thaliana.

    Decoding the neural mechanisms of human tool use

    Jason P Gallivan et al.
    Imaging experiments reveal that some brain regions do not distinguish between actions performed using tools and those performed using the hands, while others represent these two types of action separately.

    Distinct contributions of functional and deep neural network features to representational similarity of scenes in human brain and behavior

    Iris IA Groen et al.
    Deep network features exhibit a robust correlation with brain activity in scene-selective cortex, but are not sufficient to explain human scene categorization behavior, which is strongly shaped by information about the function (possibility for action) of the scene.

    Mapping nonlinear receptive field structure in primate retina at single cone resolution

    Jeremy Freeman et al.
    Multi-electrode recordings and modeling are combined to reveal the transformations of signals from cones to bipolar cells and then to ganglion cells within the primate retina.

    Use of signals of positive and negative selection to distinguish cancer genes and passenger genes

    László Bányai et al.
    In contrast with earlier conclusions, negative selection has a major role in cancer evolution.

    Efficient coding of natural scene statistics predicts discrimination thresholds for grayscale textures

    Tiberiu Tesileanu et al.
    An optimization principle allows natural-image data to predict human sensitivity to synthetic, un-natural textures with multiple gray levels.

    Highly contiguous assemblies of 101 drosophilid genomes

    Bernard Y Kim et al.
    One hundred one high-quality drosophilid genomes are released, along with low-cost assembly workflows, as an open community resource for studying genetics, ecology, and evolution in this important model system.
