    Parental effects alter the adaptive value of an adult behavioural trait

    Rebecca M Kilner et al.
    The adaptive value of social behaviour exhibited in adult life varies with conditions experienced in early life, and poorer conditions may promote conflict over cooperation.
    1. Neuroscience

    Attentional amplification of neural codes for number independent of other quantities along the dorsal visual stream

    Elisa Castaldi et al.
    The representations of information concerning the number, size, density and surface of sets of objects in a visual image are separable along the occipito-parietal cortex and independently modulated by attention.

    Distinct spatial coordinate of visual and vestibular heading signals in macaque FEFsem and MSTd

    Lihua Yang, Yong Gu
    In both frontal and temporal–parietal visual cortices of macaque, distinct spatial coordinates of visual and vestibular signals are predominantly eye centered and head centered, respectively.
    1. Neuroscience

    Visual field map clusters in human frontoparietal cortex

    Wayne E Mackey et al.
    Topographic maps of space in frontal and parietal cortex are organized into clusters, similar to visual cortex, where multiple maps of polar angle share a confluent fovea.
  2. Life story: Petteri Karisto

    Children on campus may be an unusual sight, but if institutions are supportive it can help parents at the start of their science career.
    1. Chromosomes and Gene Expression

    Paternal Effects: Like father, like son

    Claude Becker
    Exposing male mice to nicotine or cocaine enables their male offspring to cope with high doses of either, which suggests that such paternal effects are generic, rather than being a response to a specific type of stress.
