    An insect anti-antiaphrodisiac

    Colin S Brent et al.
    The first evidence is presented of a compound released by mated females that directly counteracts the effects of a seminal anti-aphrodisiac, but has no attractant properties in itself.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: The house sparrow in the service of basic and applied biology

    Haley E Hanson et al.
    The house sparrow, one of the most ubiquitous birds in the world, is now used extensively in studies across disciplines in the life sciences.

    Fast and accurate edge orientation processing during object manipulation

    J Andrew Pruszynski et al.
    Tactile edge orientation processing during object manipulation is many times better than previously thought based on perceptual studies.

    Neuronal representation of saccadic error in macaque posterior parietal cortex (PPC)

    Yang Zhou et al.
    Neurons in the macaque posterior parietal cortex behave like an error detector that computes the saccadic error by comparing the intended and the actual saccade end-position signals.

    Precise excitation-inhibition balance controls gain and timing in the hippocampus

    Aanchal Bhatia et al.
    Delayed inhibition precisely balances excitation from arbitrary combinations of CA3 neurons and controls the gain of CA1 output by reducing inhibitory delay with increasing excitation.

    Functional genomics of lipid metabolism in the oleaginous yeast Rhodosporidium toruloides

    Samuel T Coradetti et al.
    Using barcoded mutagenesis and a high-throughput genetic screen results in the identification of 150 genes that affect lipid accumulation in a non-model yeast system.

    Generalization of learned responses in the mormyrid electrosensory lobe

    Conor Dempsey et al.
    In vivo recordings and computational modeling of the electrosensory lobe of mormyrid fish provide a circuit-level description of how learning generalizes to new situations.

    Symbiont location, host fitness, and possible coadaptation in a symbiosis between social amoebae and bacteria

    Longfei Shu et al.
    Morphological and fitness defects imposed on amoebae hosts by Burkholderia symbionts demonstrates symbiont species-specific effects and provides evidence of host adaptation to naturally acquired symbionts.

    Covert shift of attention modulates the value encoding in the orbitofrontal cortex

    Yang Xie et al.
    The orbitofrontal neurons only encode the value of one item, which may be selected by covert attention combining factors of value and visual salience, suggesting a sequential processing mechanism of value information in the brain.

    Active sensing in the categorization of visual patterns

    Scott Cheng-Hsin Yang et al.
    Humans use a near-optimal eye movement strategy to efficiently extract information about high-level visual categories.
