    Epithelial colonies in vitro elongate through collective effects

    Jordi Comelles et al.
    Spontaneous elongation of epithelial colonies is related to the orientation of the mean nematic cell elongation field, as shown and tested with experiments and theory.

    Improving a probabilistic cytoarchitectonic atlas of auditory cortex using a novel method for inter-individual alignment

    Omer Faruk Gulban et al.
    Inter-individual human brain alignment that uses macro-anatomical priors in addition to cortical curvature improves micro-anatomical correspondence between auditory areas.

    Rapid computations of spectrotemporal prediction error support perception of degraded speech

    Ediz Sohoglu, Matthew H Davis
    Analysis of speech acoustics and human brain activity reveals the neural computations by which listeners combine speech input with prior expectations.

    Single-cell dynamics of pannexin-1-facilitated programmed ATP loss during apoptosis

    Hiromi Imamura et al.
    Cleavage of pannexin-1 channel by caspases facilitates the loss of intracellular ATP level and attenuates glycolytic metabolism of apoptotic cells.

    Genome-wide effects of the antimicrobial peptide apidaecin on translation termination in bacteria

    Kyle Mangano et al.
    Inhibition of bacterial protein synthesis by an antimicrobial peptide apidaecin triggers translation arrest at the stop codons, ribosome queuing and pervasive stop codon readthrough.

    Diffusion vs. direct transport in the precision of morphogen readout

    Sean Fancher, Andrew Mugler
    A theory predicts whether diffusion or direct transport establishes a more precise morphogen profile, and this prediction explains data from a wide variety of morphogens in two different organisms.

    The effects of chloride dynamics on substantia nigra pars reticulata responses to pallidal and striatal inputs

    Ryan S Phillips et al.
    The effects of chloride homeostasis can explain diverse responses of basal ganglia output neurons to putatively inhibitory inputs and may tune these neurons' synchrony, oscillations and behavior in decision-making scenarios.

    Ubiquitin-interacting motifs of ataxin-3 regulate its polyglutamine toxicity through Hsc70-4-dependent aggregation

    Sean L Johnson et al.
    Pathogenesis in Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 3 is enhanced by the heat-shock protein family member, Hsc70-4, uncovering new mechanisms of toxicity for this disease and suggesting pleiotropic roles for chaperones.

    Mother brain is wired for social moments

    Ortal Shimon-Raz et al.
    Mother brain shows special sensitivity to social moments of mother-infant synchrony, compared to other caregiving experiences, through enhanced activation across the caregiving network, response to oxytocin administration, and temporal consistency.

    Loss of cortical control over the descending pain modulatory system determines the development of the neuropathic pain state in rats

    Robert AR Drake et al.
    Alterations to brain network communication leading to a progressive loss in descending inhibitory modulation of the spinal cord is a key determinate of pain state development following peripheral nerve injury.
