    Myosin with hypertrophic cardiac mutation R712L has a decreased working stroke which is rescued by omecamtiv mecarbil

    Aaron Snoberger et al.
    Mechanochemical defects of a β-cardiac myosin mutation that results in severe hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are reported and the heart failure drug omecamtiv mecarbil rescues these defects.

    Cell-accurate optical mapping across the entire developing heart

    Michael Weber et al.
    The combination of high-speed light sheet microscopy and suitable data analysis facilitates cell-accurate measurements across entire organs and opens the way to systematic, scale-bridging, in vivo studies of organogenesis.

    Optimal evolutionary decision-making to store immune memory

    Oskar H Schnaack, Armita Nourmohammad
    Actively regulated immune memory differentiation, with a preference for cross-reactive receptors with moderate affinity against pathogens as opposed to high-affinity receptors, confers a long-term benefit to the host.

    Mapping cortical mesoscopic networks of single spiking cortical or sub-cortical neurons

    Dongsheng Xiao et al.
    Mesoscale cortical calcium activity correlating with single cortical and thalamic cell spiking reveal rich dynamics and support a novel approach for investigating in vivo functional networks in the mammalian brain.

    A circuit mechanism for decision-making biases and NMDA receptor hypofunction

    Sean Edward Cavanagh et al.
    Ketamine, an NMDA receptor antagonist and experimental model for schizophrenia, produces decision-making deficits in monkeys, which are predicted by a lowering of cortical excitation-inhibition balance in a spiking circuit model.

    Tree crickets optimize the acoustics of baffles to exaggerate their mate-attraction signal

    Natasha Mhatre et al.
    Tree crickets can optimize the baffles they make to increase call loudness without any progressive optimization, and manufacture an optimal baffle in a single attempt, by using a simple yet highly accurate heuristic.

    Normative evidence accumulation in unpredictable environments

    Christopher M Glaze et al.
    Theoretically optimal dynamics for making decisions in unpredictable environments provide a broadly applicable framework for understanding choice behavior and underlying neural signals.

    Optimal policy for attention-modulated decisions explains human fixation behavior

    Anthony I Jang et al.
    A normative decision-making model that incorporates an information-limiting attention bottleneck is able to qualitatively replicate human behavior and make novel predictions that are verified in data.

    Quorums enable optimal pooling of independent judgements in biological systems

    James AR Marshall et al.
    Consideration of signal detection theory shows how decision ecology relates to optimal collective decisions, helping explain the prevalence of quorum-sensing in even the simplest collective systems, such as bacterial communities.
