    Binocular rivalry reveals an out-of-equilibrium neural dynamics suited for decision-making

    Robin Cao et al.
    The statistics of binocular rivalry at different combinations of image contrast is reproduced quantitatively by competing out-of-equilibrium populations of independent neural assemblies with idealized attractor dynamics.

    Rapid feedback on hospital onset SARS-CoV-2 infections combining epidemiological and sequencing data

    Oliver Stirrup et al.
    Epidemiological and viral sequence data can be combined to provide standardised feedback on cases of hospital onset COVID-19 infection that would be useful for infection prevention and control.

    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.

    Mechanisms underlying genome instability mediated by formation of foldback inversions in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Bin-zhong Li et al.
    Genetic analysis combined with whole genome sequencing elucidates mechanisms and pathways that form and prevent a specific class of genome rearrangements, foldback inversions, seen in many human cancers.

    Representation of time interval entrained by periodic stimuli in the visual thalamus of pigeons

    Yan Yang et al.
    The experience-dependent representation of time interval in the seconds-to-minutes range occurs as early as at the thalamic level in the brain.

    Cytoplasmic mRNA decay represses RNA polymerase II transcription during early apoptosis

    Christopher Duncan-Lewis et al.
    Human cells respond to cytoplasmic mRNA depletion during early apoptosis by inhibiting RNA polymerase II transcription, thereby magnifying the gene expression shutdown during stress.

    Causal neural mechanisms of context-based object recognition

    Miles Wischnewski, Marius V Peelen
    Context-based object recognition causally relies on both scene- and object-selective cortex, with scene-selective cortex generating expectations (at 160-200 ms after onset) that disambiguate object representations in object-selective cortex (at 260-300 ms after onset).

    Development of visual motion integration involves coordination of multiple cortical stages

    Augusto A Lempel, Kristina J Nielsen
    The development of complex motion processing in higher-level visual cortex involves functional changes in primary visual cortex, indicating coordinated development in multiple nodes of the visual hierarchy.

    Early life experience sets hard limits on motor learning as evidenced from artificial arm use

    Roni O Maimon-Mor et al.
    Biological- or artificial-arm experience during early development has a significant effect on artificial-arm motor control in adulthood, providing evidence for limited sensorimotor plasticity beyond childhood.

    Cerebellar patients have intact feedback control that can be leveraged to improve reaching

    Amanda M Zimmet et al.
    A control system model of cerebellar patients' movements provides insight into the cerebellum's role in reaching and informs a virtual reality intervention to improve patient reaches.
