    Sparse genetic tracing reveals regionally specific functional organization of mammalian nociceptors

    William Olson et al.
    Single-nociceptor tracing reveals a novel somatotopic organization for the mammalian pain system, and physiological recordings and peripheral optogenetic behavior assays suggest that it is a possible mechanism underlying region-specific pain sensation.

    Perceptually relevant remapping of human somatotopy in 24 hours

    James Kolasinski et al.
    A combination of 7 tesla fMRI and psychophysics revealed the reorganisation of the human somatosensory cortex and changes in tactile perceptual abilities after just 24 hours of altered hand use.

    Revealing the neural fingerprints of a missing hand

    Sanne Kikkert et al.
    The brain continues to represent individual fingers in primary somatosensory cortex decades after the amputation of a hand, indicating that cortical maps do not require ongoing sensory input from the body.

    A mutant with bilateral whisker to barrel inputs unveils somatosensory mapping rules in the cerebral cortex

    Nicolas Renier et al.
    The somatosensory cortex doesn't integrate mixed bilateral inputs, as partially uncrossing projections from the whiskers duplicates their representation by segregating lateralized inputs from each side of the head.

    Frequency-selective control of cortical and subcortical networks by central thalamus

    Jia Liu et al.
    Central thalamus relay neurons dynamically switch the activity of cortical and subcortical networks at distinct frequencies, providing a mechanism for this region's role in arousal regulation.

    The influence of the descending pain modulatory system on infant pain-related brain activity

    Sezgi Goksan et al.
    Greater connectivity of the descending pain modulatory system network in the infant brain is associated with lower pain-related brain activity.

    Developmental 'awakening' of primary motor cortex to the sensory consequences of movement

    James C Dooley, Mark S Blumberg
    Early in development, before neurons in primary motor cortex are involved in motor control, they undergo a rapid transition in how they process sensory information following sleep and wake movements.

    The rate of transient beta frequency events predicts behavior across tasks and species

    Hyeyoung Shin et al.
    Across species, tasks and recording modalities, the rate of transient neocortical beta frequency (15-29Hz) events strongly predicts perceptual ability, providing fundamental mechanistic insight, with implications for tracking and manipulating brain dynamics.

    Enrichment drives emergence of functional columns and improves sensory coding in the whisker map in L2/3 of mouse S1

    Amy M LeMessurier et al.
    Sensory enrichment creates a more columnar, less salt-and-pepper whisker map in somatosensory cortex, showing that impoverished experience contributes to intermixed tuning in rodent sensory maps.

    Stomach-brain synchrony reveals a novel, delayed-connectivity resting-state network in humans

    Ignacio Rebollo et al.
    Coupling between the gastric rhythm and brain activity at rest reveals a novel resting-state network, characterized by delayed functional connectivity.
