    Fundamental bound on the persistence and capacity of short-term memory stored as graded persistent activity

    Onur Ozan Koyluoglu et al.
    A fundamental lower-bound on memory recall precision, which declines with storage duration and number of stored items, is derived, and human performance is shown to be well-fit by this theoretical bound.

    Distinct roles of visual, parietal, and frontal motor cortices in memory-guided sensorimotor decisions

    Michael J Goard et al.
    Visual, parietal, and frontal motor cortices play distinct and necessary roles in mapping sensory features to future motor action.

    A theory of working memory without consciousness or sustained activity

    Darinka Trübutschek et al.
    Visual information can be maintained in non-conscious working memory for several seconds via short-term changes in synaptic weights.

    Protein kinase C is a calcium sensor for presynaptic short-term plasticity

    Diasynou Fioravante et al.
    Genetic and electrophysiology experiments provide the first direct evidence that protein kinase C is a calcium-sensing protein in post-tetanic potentiation, a form of synaptic plasticity that supports short-term memory.

    An alternative splicing switch shapes neurexin repertoires in principal neurons versus interneurons in the mouse hippocampus

    Thi-Minh Nguyen et al.
    Interneuron-specific alternative splice variants of the synaptic receptor neurexin are critical for hippocampal network activity and short-term memory.

    Point of View: Is cell size a spandrel?

    Ariel Amir
    Analysis of experiments on bacteria suggests that the dependence of cell size on growth rate is not an adaptation but a causal consequence of a regulatory mechanism that controls DNA replication.

    Point of View: Predictive regulation and human design

    Peter Sterling
    Why does the human regulatory system, which evolution tuned for small satisfactions, now constantly demand 'more'?
