    Episode 21: June 2015

    In this episode we hear about tinnitus and hyperacusis, salamanders, chemical harpoons, and the role of ultrasound and song in the mating rituals of mice and flies.
  2. People walking in an airport

    Episode 65: March 2020

    In this episode we hear about bats hosting deadly viruses, screening travelers for COVID-19, Tuvan singers and predicting educational success.
    1. Neuroscience

    Uncovering the functional anatomy of the human insula during speech

    Oscar Woolnough et al.
    Direct insular recordings in humans reveal that contrary to several prominent models of speech production, it is not engaged in pre-articulatory planning, but in auditory and somatosensory components of speech.
    1. Neuroscience

    mTORC1 in the orbitofrontal cortex promotes habitual alcohol seeking

    Nadege Morisot et al.
    In the orbitofrontal cortex, mTORC1, a multiprotein complex centered around the kinase mTOR, contributes to the development and/or maintenance of habitual alcohol seeking.
    1. Chromosomes and Gene Expression

    Srsf10 and the minor spliceosome control tissue-specific and dynamic SR protein expression

    Stefan Meinke et al.
    Competition between minor and major splice sites in SRSF10 controls cell type-dependent expression of all SR-proteins and reveals a global impact of the minor spliceosome on major intron splicing.
    1. Neuroscience

    Short-term modulation of the lesioned language network

    Gesa Hartwigsen et al.
    Virtual lesions of the left posterior inferior frontal gyrus in patients with lesions in the left temporo-parietal cortex disrupt phonologial decisions and lead to compensatory upregulation of the lesion homologue.

    Metabolic and non-metabolic liver zonation is established non-synchronously and requires sinusoidal Wnts

    Ruihua Ma et al.
    Mouse genetic approaches show that multiple Wnt endothelial sources orchestrate the spatiotemporal distribution of hepatocyte functions during liver maturation and respecify metabolic zonation during liver repair.
    1. Neuroscience

    Defined neuronal populations drive fatal phenotype in a mouse model of Leigh syndrome

    Irene Bolea et al.
    Glutamatergic brainstem neurons drive motor and respiratory deficits, and GABAergic basal ganglia neurons cause hypothermia and fatal epileptic events, in a model of mitochondrial disease.
    1. Neuroscience

    Population response magnitude variation in inferotemporal cortex predicts image memorability

    Andrew Jaegle et al.
    Population response magnitude predicts how well an image will be remembered, in both monkey inferotemporal cortex and neural networks trained to categorize objects.
    1. Neuroscience

    Statistical learning attenuates visual activity only for attended stimuli

    David Richter, Floris P de Lange
    Prior expectations, induced by statistical learning, affect sensory processing only for attended stimuli, thereby constraining neurocomputational theories that cast perception as an inferential process integrating prior knowledge and sensory evidence.
