    Shared neural underpinnings of multisensory integration and trial-by-trial perceptual recalibration in humans

    Hame Park, Christoph Kayser
    Facing discrepancies in the sensory environment, multisensory information is combined in the medial superior parietal cortex to guide immediate judgements and to also adjust subsequent unisensory perception.

    Trans-toxin ion-sensitivity of charybdotoxin-blocked potassium-channels reveals unbinding transitional states

    Hans Moldenhauer et al.
    Detection of unbinding transitional states in the charybdotoxin first-order dissociation from a Kv-channel reveals that the bound neurotoxin wobbles, suggesting diverse intermediates and dissociation pathways in this protein–protein interaction.

    Distinct roles of striatal direct and indirect pathways in value-based decision making

    Shinae Kwak, Min Whan Jung
    The direct and indirect pathways of the dorsal striatum play indispensable roles in value-dependent action selection and value learning, respectively.
  1. Suzanne Eaton: In memory of a remarkable colleague

    As a tribute to Suzanne Eaton’s many contributions to science and to scientists, we asked several of her colleagues to reflect on her work and life.

    Characterizing functional pathways of the human olfactory system

    Guangyu Zhou et al.
    Human primary olfactory cortical regions can be parcellated into anatomically distinct areas based on whole-brain functional connectivity profiles, suggesting distinct, parallel functional pathways in the human olfactory system.

    Agrin-Lrp4-Ror2 signaling regulates adult hippocampal neurogenesis in mice

    Hongsheng Zhang et al.
    Enriched environment stimulates neuron generation in the hippocampus by a novel pathway involving Agrin, Lrp4, and Ror2.
    1. Neuroscience

    Voluntary and involuntary contributions to perceptually guided saccadic choices resolved with millisecond precision

    Emilio Salinas et al.
    Looking away from a salient visual stimulus pits the reflexive urge to look toward it against the voluntary intention not to, and this conflict is resolved within tens of milliseconds.

    Conditional deletion of glucocorticoid receptors in rat brain results in sex-specific deficits in fear and coping behaviors

    Jessie R Scheimann et al.
    Development of a conditional glucocorticoid receptor knockdown rat model allows for high resolution anatomical, physiological and behavioral exploration into the role of glucocorticoid receptor signaling in defined cell populations.

    Network-wide abnormalities explain memory variability in hippocampal amnesia

    Georgios PD Argyropoulos et al.
    Hippocampal damage is associated with changes across the extended hippocampal system, and these may explain variability in memory between patients presenting with hippocampal amnesia.

    Sleep-promoting effects of threonine link amino acid metabolism in Drosophila neuron to GABAergic control of sleep drive

    Yoonhee Ki, Chunghun Lim
    Threonine promotes sleep via down-regulation of metabotropic GABA transmission in the ellipsoid body R2 neurons that generate homeostatic sleep drive in Drosophila.
