    Motor context dominates output from purkinje cell functional regions during reflexive visuomotor behaviours

    Laura D Knogler et al.
    Purkinje cells of the cerebellum, a conserved vertebrate brain region important for sensorimotor integration, receive sensory and motor information from distinct input streams and are functionally clustered into modules reflecting the larval zebrafish's behavioral repertoire.

    Parallel visual circuitry in a basal chordate

    Matthew J Kourakis et al.
    The ascidian Ciona integrates visual information from two photoreceptor types through convergent excitatory and disinhibitory circuits, thereby evoking swim behaviors.

    Complementary encoding of priors in monkey frontoparietal network supports a dual process of decision-making

    Lalitta Suriya-Arunroj, Alexander Gail
    Probability of upcoming actions modulates subclasses of neurons in frontoparietal motor-planning areas in a complementary fashion and frontal-lobe processing takes the leading role when primates commit to a decision.

    Unusual prism adaptation reveals how grasping is controlled

    Willemijn D Schot et al.
    Adapting single-digit movements in opposite directions makes people open their grip in accordance with the adaptations of the individual digits, showing that grip aperture arises from goal-directed movements of the digits rather than being controlled independently.

    Network-wide reorganization of procedural memory during NREM sleep revealed by fMRI

    Shahabeddin Vahdat et al.
    Non-REM sleep is essential in the restoration of initial motor memory trace and gradual reorganization of newly-learned information underlying human procedural memory consolidation.

    Specialized areas for value updating and goal selection in the primate orbitofrontal cortex

    Elisabeth A Murray et al.
    Within the monkey orbitofrontal cortex, a posterior part learns new values, whereas an anterior part translates this knowledge into advantageous decisions.

    The influence of task outcome on implicit motor learning

    Hyosub E Kim et al.
    During a sensorimotor perturbation, task outcome may serve as a gain on implicit adaptation or provide a distinct error signal for a second, independent implicit learning process.

    Causal manipulation of functional connectivity in a specific neural pathway during behaviour and at rest

    Vanessa M Johnen et al.
    Functional connectivity in the human brain reflects changes in synaptic plasticity induced with repeated paired stimulation.

    A cortical disinhibitory circuit for enhancing adult plasticity

    Yu Fu et al.
    Building on previous work (Kaneko and Stryker, 2014), we report that the specific population of inhibitory neurons that increases the responses of neurons in the visual cortex during locomotion will also, when activated or blocked artificially, dramatically alter adult cortical plasticity, revealing that the aerobic exercise of locomotion is not necessary.
