    Modulation of tonotopic ventral medial geniculate body is behaviorally relevant for speech recognition

    Paul Glad Mihai et al.
    Ultra-high field neuroimaging dissects the ventral medial geniculate body (vMGB) of the primary auditory pathway from other MGB subregions and reveals that vMGB top-down modulation is relevant for speech recognition.

    Foggy perception slows us down

    Paolo Pretto et al.
    Virtual reality experiments show that motorists slow down when driving in fog, but they speed up when visibility is reduced equally at all distances.

    Functional brain alterations following mild-to-moderate sensorineural hearing loss in children

    Axelle Calcus et al.
    Mild-to-moderate sensorineural hearing loss causes changes in the neurophysiological functioning that emerge during adolescence, as suggested by both cross-sectional and longitudinal designs.

    Distributing tasks via multiple input pathways increases cellular survival in stress

    Alejandro A Granados et al.
    Single-cell experiments and mathematical modelling show that cellular signalling networks are vulnerable to trade-offs in speed versus accuracy, but that these vulnerabilities can be overcome by distributing the two tasks to different, although interacting, subnetworks.

    Specialized contributions of mid-tier stages of dorsal and ventral pathways to stereoscopic processing in macaque

    Toshihide W Yoshioka et al.
    Visual area MT signals binocular disparity quickly and robustly, whereas area V4 or its upstream area transforms the nature of the signals to derive a more sophisticated depth representation.

    Neuronal populations in the occipital cortex of the blind synchronize to the temporal dynamics of speech

    Markus Johannes Van Ackeren et al.
    Blind people re-purpose the brain's visual areas for tracking speech rhythm.

    Ca2+ entry through NaV channels generates submillisecond axonal Ca2+ signaling

    Naomi AK Hanemaaijer et al.
    High-speed calcium imaging from the axon initial segment shows that sodium channels are in part permeable to calcium ions.

    Silhouette of a zebra finch on a blue background.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Neurogenomic insights into the behavioral and vocal development of the zebra finch

    Mark E Hauber et al.
    The genetic and behavioral diversity of the zebra finch, both in the wild and in captivity, make it well-suited for neuroethological studies of vocal learning, culture, and social bonding.

    Saccadic suppression as a perceptual consequence of efficient sensorimotor estimation

    Frédéric Crevecoeur, Konrad P Kording
    Neural computations necessary for efficient control of saccades capture the phenomenon of saccadic suppression, which suggests that neural resources are shared for perception and control.

    Speed and segmentation control mechanisms characterized in rhythmically-active circuits created from spinal neurons produced from genetically-tagged embryonic stem cells

    Matthew J Sternfeld et al.
    Stem cell derived ventral-spinal cord excitatory neurons self-assemble into a rhythmically bursting neural network whose speed and intercellular coordination are both instructively modulated by cell-type specific interactions with inhibitory neurons.
