    Social interactions drive efficient foraging and income equality in groups of fish

    Roy Harpaz, Elad Schneidman
    Analysis and modeling of group behavior of adult zebrafish shows that a specialized social interaction mechanism increases foraging efficiency and equality within groups, under a variety of environmental conditions.

    An expanding manifold in transmodal regions characterizes adolescent reconfiguration of structural connectome organization

    Bo-yong Park et al.
    Manifold learning of longitudinal brain network data provides novel insights into adolescent structural connectome maturation, and how multiple scales of cortical and subcortical organization interact in typical neurodevelopment.

    Topological constraints in early multicellularity favor reproductive division of labor

    David Yanni et al.
    Mathematical modeling shows that reproductive specialization is strongly favored in sparse networks of cellular interactions that reflect the morphology of early multicellular organisms, even when benefits of specialization are saturating.

    Antagonism in olfactory receptor neurons and its implications for the perception of odor mixtures

    Gautam Reddy et al.
    Computational and theoretical analyses offer novel and unexpected insight into how complex, naturally occurring odor mixtures are parsed and normalized at the very first stage of olfaction.

    Using evolution to generate sustainable malaria control with spatial repellents

    Penelope Anne Lynch, Mike Boots
    The evolution of insecticide-avoidance behaviour can be used to generate new spatial repellents to keep malaria vectors out of homes.

    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.

    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.

    Efficient conversion of chemical energy into mechanical work by Hsp70 chaperones

    Salvatore Assenza et al.
    A multiscale modeling approach reveals how the energy from ATP hydrolysis is used by Hsp70 chaperones to remodel the conformation of their substrates through a novel force-generating mechanism.
  1. Research: Gender bias in scholarly peer review

    Markus Helmer et al.
    Gender-bias in peer reviewing might persist even when gender-equity is reached because both male and female editors operate with a same-gender preference whose characteristics differ by editor-gender.
  2. Research Culture: A survey of early-career researchers in Australia

    Katherine Christian et al.
    Job insecurity is putting stress on early-career researchers in Australia, compromising their career development and potentially reducing the quality of research.
