    Perception as a closed-loop convergence process

    Ehud Ahissar, Eldad Assa
    Perception is proposed to be a dynamic motor-sensory closed-loop process in which information flows through the environment and the brain in continuous loops, converging towards steady-state percepts.

    Perception of social interaction compresses subjective duration in an oxytocin-dependent manner

    Rui Liu et al.
    The subjective time of social interactions reflects one's autistic-like tendency and is critically mediated by oxytocin, indicating that time perception is ingrained with personality traits, which likely have neuroendocrine origins as per previous research.

    The perception and misperception of optical defocus, shading, and shape

    Scott WJ Mooney et al.
    The human visual system uses sharp edges to distinguish a smooth, shaded surface from a surface blurred by optical defocus.

    Feedback optimizes neural coding and perception of natural stimuli

    Chengjie G Huang et al.
    Neurophysiological and behavioral approaches reveal how coordinated input from descending pathways shapes the tuning properties of electrosensory neurons in order to optimize coding of natural stimuli through temporal whitening.

    Antagonism in olfactory receptor neurons and its implications for the perception of odor mixtures

    Gautam Reddy et al.
    Computational and theoretical analyses offer novel and unexpected insight into how complex, naturally occurring odor mixtures are parsed and normalized at the very first stage of olfaction.

    A shared numerical representation for action and perception

    Giovanni Anobile et al.
    Adapting to rapid or slow finger tapping selectively biases the apparent numerosity of sequences or arrays of visual stimuli.

    The role of cochlear place coding in the perception of frequency modulation

    Kelly L Whiteford et al.
    Human perceptual sensitivity to frequency modulation across the hearing range can be explained by a unitary neural code based on neural responses to amplitude modulation and fidelity of cochlear tuning.

    Molecular determinants of permeation in a fluoride-specific ion channel

    Nicholas B Last et al.
    The ion-transport pathway of an unconventional bacterial fluoride channel is mapped out through combined crystallographic and functional experiments.
    1. Neuroscience

    The contribution of temporal coding to odor coding and odor perception in humans

    Ofer Perl et al.
    Human participants fail to discriminate between odor sequences that activate the same neurons at different orders, pointing against a substantial role for neuron activation time in the odor code.

    Content-specific activity in frontoparietal and default-mode networks during prior-guided visual perception

    Carlos González-García et al.
    Prior experience alters content-specific neural representations of visual input in frontoparietal and default-mode networks.
