    Quantitative uniqueness of human brain evolution revealed through phylogenetic comparative analysis

    Ian F Miller et al.
    The exceptionally large size of the human brain is the result of accelerating evolution towards larger brains in hominins, but is not the product of neocortical expansion.

    Consolidation alters motor sequence-specific distributed representations

    Basile Pinsard et al.
    The consolidation of newly acquired motor skills induces a functional reorganization of sequential information representations within secondary motor cortex, basal ganglia and hippocampus.

    Epithelial geometry regulates spindle orientation and progenitor fate during formation of the mammalian epidermis

    Kimberly Box et al.
    Early in mammalian epidermal development, basal epidermal progenitor cells utilize packing and three-dimensional geometry, rather than cortical polarity cues, to inform division orientation and progenitor cell fate.

    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.

    Posterior parietal cortex estimates the relationship between object and body location during locomotion

    Daniel S Marigold, Trevor Drew
    Posterior parietal cortex provides an estimation of the location of an object with respect to the body and uses this information to plan appropriate gait changes to negotiate such an obstacle.

    Discovery of novel determinants of endothelial lineage using chimeric heterokaryons

    Wing Tak Wong et al.
    Bioinformatic analysis of gene expression in chimeric heterokaryons can identify novel regulators of cell lineage.

    RNA binding protein Caprin-2 is a pivotal regulator of the central osmotic defense response

    Agnieszka Konopacka et al.
    Caprin-2 is up-regulated in the rat hypothalamus by osmotic stress and controls vital homeostatic osmoregulatory mechanisms by altering the length of the poly(A) tail on arginine vasopressin mRNAs.

    A critical re-evaluation of fMRI signatures of motor sequence learning

    Eva Berlot et al.
    A systematic assessment of previously proposed fMRI metrics of motor sequence learning reveals widespread activity reductions and subtle multivariate pattern changes outside of primary motor cortex.

    Modelling the emergence of whisker barrels

    Sebastian S James et al.
    Whisker barrels provide clues about neocortical development, as computer modelling shows that barrels can self-organize, based on competition between adjacent thalamocortical axons, suggesting that genetic instruction plays a secondary role.

    Deciphering the neural signature of human cardiovascular regulation

    Jorge Manuel et al.
    At least three hypothalamic subsystems are involved in cardiovascular regulation in humans.
