    Neural computations underlying inverse reinforcement learning in the human brain

    Sven Collette et al.
    The human brain is capable of implementing inverse reinforcement learning, where an observer infers the hidden reward structure of a decision problem solely through observing another individual take actions.

    The causal role of the somatosensory cortex in prosocial behaviour

    Selene Gallo et al.
    A combination of human imaging and brain stimulation techniques show that the somatosensory cortex is essential to prosocial decision making, by transforming observed pain in accurate perception of others' distress.

    Brain functional networks associated with social bonding in monogamous voles

    M Fernanda López-Gutiérrez et al.
    Brain functional connectivity shows a neurobiological predisposition to social bonding, and network-wide changes occur as a result of cohabitation in the prairie vole.

    Quantification of the pace of biological aging in humans through a blood test, the DunedinPoAm DNA methylation algorithm

    Daniel W Belsky et al.
    Methylation pace of aging is a novel measure requiring only a blood sample that clinical-trial and observational studies can use to test if treatments modify how fast participants are aging.

    Oxytocin-mediated social enrichment promotes longer telomeres and novelty seeking

    Jamshid Faraji et al.
    Social enrichment supports longevity.

    Neural precursors of decisions that matter—an ERP study of deliberate and arbitrary choice

    Uri Maoz et al.
    The readiness potential—a long-established neural precursor of voluntary action claimed to precede the onset of the conscious decision to move—is absent, or at least significantly reduced, for deliberate decisions.

    Research: A new era for research into aging

    Matt Kaeberlein, Jessica K Tyler
    eLife is publishing a special issue on aging, geroscience and longevity to mark the rapid progress made in this field over the past decade, both in terms of mechanistic understanding and translational approaches that are poised to have clinical impact on age-related diseases.

    Social aversive generalization learning sharpens the tuning of visuocortical neurons to facial identity cues

    Yannik Stegmann et al.
    Measures of visuocortical activity during aversive generalization learning revealed sharpened representations of facial identity, reflecting inhibitory interactions between neuronal populations that represent facial features associated with threat versus safety.

    Extrinsic and intrinsic dynamics in movement intermittency

    Damar Susilaradeya et al.
    The rhythmicity in upper-limb tracking movements and associated population dynamics in primary motor cortex is explained by a feedback controller incorporating optimal state estimation.
