    Motor thalamus supports striatum-driven reinforcement

    Arnaud L Lalive et al.
    While the basal ganglia have long been thought to mediate learning through dopamine-dependent striatal plasticity, their regulation of motor thalamus plays an unexpected and critical role in reinforcement.
    1. Neuroscience

    Cerebellar learning using perturbations

    Guy Bouvier et al.
    A proposal for a complete cellular/network implementation of trial-and-error motor learning in the olivo-cerebellar system.

    Brain signatures of a multiscale process of sequence learning in humans

    Maxime Maheu et al.
    Evidence for multiple brain systems for sequence processing involving statistical inferences at multiple scales.
    1. Neuroscience

    The role of cochlear place coding in the perception of frequency modulation

    Kelly L Whiteford et al.
    Human perceptual sensitivity to frequency modulation across the hearing range can be explained by a unitary neural code based on neural responses to amplitude modulation and fidelity of cochlear tuning.
    1. Neuroscience

    Precisely timed dopamine signals establish distinct kinematic representations of skilled movements

    Alexandra Bova et al.
    Dopamine signaling gradually causes long-lasting changes in fine motor coordination that can later be activated by acute changes in dopamine neuron activity.

    Mechanisms of competitive selection: A canonical neural circuit framework

    Shreesh P Mysore, Ninad B Kothari
    A first principles, neuro-computational framework proposes a path for the experimental dissection of neural circuit mechanisms of competitive selection across brain areas and animal species.

    Overtone focusing in biphonic tuvan throat singing

    Christopher Bergevin et al.
    In light of the mysteries underlying the biphonic nature of Tuvan throat song, information from multiple modalities is combined to explain how this remarkable phenomenon is achieved biomechanically.
