    The social life of Norway rats (Rattus norvegicus)

    Manon K Schweinfurth
    Rats are highly social animals that show complex social skills, which has not been acknowledged enough when controlling them in the wild and conducting research in the laboratory.

    Oxytocin modulates human chemosensory decoding of sex in a dose-dependent manner

    Kepu Chen et al.
    Oxytocin, but not the structurally similar vasopressin, modulates both the chemosensory decoding of femininity in straight men and that of masculinity in gay men in an inverted-U-shaped manner.

    Developing a theoretical evolutionary framework to solve the mystery of parturition initiation

    Antonis Rokas et al.
    This review considers the evolutionary processes and physiological mechanisms that maintain or end pregnancy in mammals to formulate general, testable theoretical models that provide insights into the biology of parturition.

    Neural arbitration between social and individual learning systems

    Andreea Oliviana Diaconescu et al.
    Arbitration is formalised as the relative precision of predictions afforded by reward and social learning systems and is represented in modality-specific dopaminergic and dopaminoceptive regions, including the midbrain and amygdala.

    Neural basis of corruption in power-holders

    Yang Hu et al.
    Model-based fMRI reveals the neurocomputational bases of accepting a bribe when power-holders consider two moral costs, conniving with a fraudulent briber and the harm brought to a third party.

    Translational control of auditory imprinting and structural plasticity by eIF2α

    Gervasio Batista et al.
    Behavioral pharmacology and molecular biology reveal a translational control mechanism underlying auditory imprinting and structural plasticity that can be pharmacologically manipulated to reopen the critical period.

    Stimulation of hypothalamic oxytocin neurons suppresses colorectal cancer progression in mice

    Susu Pan et al.
    Assessments using chemogenetic and pharmacological approaches reveal that modulation of the activities of oxytocin neurons in the hypothalamus of the central nervous system could inhibit colorectal cancer progression in mice.

    Neural network of social interaction observation in marmosets

    Justine C Cléry et al.
    The brain network associated with social interaction observation involves large part of the frontal cortex and parietal areas in marmosets.

    The role of oxytocin in delay of gratification and flexibility in non-social decision making

    Georgia Eleni Kapetaniou et al.
    Oxytocin was found to significantly improve non-social decision making in a healthy sample, suggesting a domain-general function of the hormone, in contrast to its previously hypothesized social domain specificity.

    Learning steers the ontogeny of an efficient hunting sequence in zebrafish larvae

    Konstantinos Lagogiannis et al.
    Early hunting experience modifies the kinematics of hunting in larval zebrafish to increase the probability of successfully capturing live prey.
