    Sensory perception drives food avoidance through excitatory basal forebrain circuits

    Jay M Patel et al.
    Glutamatergic projection neurons downstream of cholinergic cells in the basal forebrain potently affect feeding behavior by modulating downstream reward and aversion circuits.

    Peripheral optogenetic stimulation induces whisker movement and sensory perception in head-fixed mice

    Sunmee Park et al.
    Light can be used to trigger the contraction of facial muscles and movement of the whiskers in transgenic mice, aiding the study of active sensation.

    Dissociable roles of the inferior longitudinal fasciculus and fornix in face and place perception

    Carl J Hodgetts et al.
    Structure-function associations in medial temporal lobe reflect specialised, behaviourally-relevant neurocognitive circuits for the perception of faces and places.

    Long term functional plasticity of sensory inputs mediated by olfactory learning

    Nixon M Abraham et al.
    Associative learning, but not passive odorant exposure, induces a novel long lasting functional plasticity in the periphery of mouse olfactory system, making previously encountered odors easier to detect in the future.

    Local cortical desynchronization and pupil-linked arousal differentially shape brain states for optimal sensory performance

    Leonhard Waschke et al.
    The momentary levels of local cortical desynchronization and pupil-linked arousal pose dissociable influences not only on the processing of sensory information but also on human perceptual performance.

    Caenorhabditis elegans processes sensory information to choose between freeloading and self-defense strategies

    Jodie A Schiffer et al.
    C. elegans nematodes use a sensory-neuronal circuit to determine whether to defend themselves from hydrogen peroxide attack or to freeload off orthologous protective defenses from bacteria in their surrounding environment.

    Stretching the skin immediately enhances perceived stiffness and gradually enhances the predictive control of grip force

    Mor Farajian et al.
    Elucidating the contribution of augmented artificial skin-stretch stimulation to the fingertips to the immediate illusion of a higher stiffness and to an increased predictive grip force control.

    Evolution of neuronal anatomy and circuitry in two highly divergent nematode species

    Ray L Hong et al.
    The substrate for evolutionary divergence does not lie in changes in neuronal cell number or targeting, but rather in sensory perception and synaptic partner choice within invariant, prepatterned neuronal processes.

    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.

    Sensory dynamics of visual hallucinations in the normal population

    Joel Pearson et al.
    A new method for inducing, measuring and modelling visual hallucinations in healthy people reveals that hallucinations share common underlying mechanisms with normal sensory perception.
