    Habitat and social factors shape individual decisions and emergent group structure during baboon collective movement

    Ariana Strandburg-Peshkin et al.
    For baboons on the move, habitat features across multiple spatial scales combine with social interactions to impact the movements of individuals, ultimately shaping the structure of the whole group.

    Compound-V formations in shorebird flocks

    Aaron J Corcoran, Tyson L Hedrick
    Shorebird flocks fly in a formation that re-creates the neighbor positioning relationship of a V-formation in cluster flocks of more than 1000 birds.

    The genetic architecture of gene expression levels in wild baboons

    Jenny Tung et al.
    RNA sequencing of individuals within a wild baboon population reveals extensive power to detect functional regulatory variation, and suggests that the set of genes affected by such variation may be conserved across species.

    Connectional asymmetry of the inferior parietal lobule shapes hemispheric specialization in humans, chimpanzees, and rhesus macaques

    Luqi Cheng et al.
    Humans showed the most widespread asymmetric connectivity between the inferior parietal lobule subregions and the rest of the brain compared to macaques and chimpanzees, which shapes hemispheric specialization in primates.

    Tracking prototype and exemplar representations in the brain across learning

    Caitlin R Bowman et al.
    Concepts can be represented at multiple levels of specificity (individual examples, abstract category averages) within a single task across different regions of the brain.

    Intergenerational effects of early adversity on survival in wild baboons

    Matthew N Zipple et al.
    In wild baboons, a female's adverse early experiences can influence her offspring's survival years after the original adversity was experienced.
