    A consensus guide to capturing the ability to inhibit actions and impulsive behaviors in the stop-signal task

    Frederick Verbruggen et al.
    Clear guidelines and open-source software resources are provided for the stop-signal task, in order to streamline the use of this important tool, and to thereby increase its validity and reliability.

    Non-selective inhibition of inappropriate motor-tendencies during response-conflict by a fronto-subthalamic mechanism

    Jan R Wessel et al.
    Action-selection under response-conflict is buttressed by an inhibitory control signal from the basal ganglia that non-selectively suppresses motor excitability.

    Temporal cascade of frontal, motor and muscle processes underlying human action-stopping

    Sumitash Jana et al.
    The sequence of neural and physiological processes underlying action-stopping has been delineated.

    A selective role for ventromedial subthalamic nucleus in inhibitory control

    Benjamin Pasquereau, Robert S Turner
    Single-unit activity consistent with a selective causal role in reactive stopping or switching behaviors is found only in the most ventromedial subregion of the subthalamic nucleus.

  1. Meta-Research: How significant are the public dimensions of faculty work in review, promotion and tenure documents?

    Juan P Alperin et al.
    An analysis of review, promotion and tenure documents from 129 US and Canadian universities suggests institutions could better fulfill their public missions by changing how they incentivize the public dimensions of faculty work.

    Meta-Research: Incidences of problematic cell lines are lower in papers that use RRIDs to identify cell lines

    Zeljana Babic et al.
    The use of Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) improves the proper use of cell lines in the biomedical literature.
