    Rapid learning in visual cortical networks

    Ye Wang, Valentin Dragoi
    The rapid learning of sensory information in cortical circuits is accompanied by a tight coordination of spike timing with the local theta-band population activity in visual cortex.

    Silhouette of a zebra finch on a blue background.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Neurogenomic insights into the behavioral and vocal development of the zebra finch

    Mark E Hauber et al.
    The genetic and behavioral diversity of the zebra finch, both in the wild and in captivity, make it well-suited for neuroethological studies of vocal learning, culture, and social bonding.

    Rules and mechanisms for efficient two-stage learning in neural circuits

    Tiberiu Teşileanu et al.
    Teaching signals from "tutor" brain areas should be adapted to the plasticity mechanisms in "student" areas to achieve efficient learning in two-stage systems such as the vocal control circuit of the songbird.

    Songbirds can learn flexible contextual control over syllable sequencing

    Lena Veit et al.
    Songbirds can use arbitrary visual cues to immediately, flexibly and adaptively control syntax of learned song vocalizations in a manner that parallels human cognitive control over syllable sequencing in speech.

    Low-dimensional learned feature spaces quantify individual and group differences in vocal repertoires

    Jack Goffinet et al.
    Modern machine learning methods offer new techniques for analyzing complex vocal behavior like ultrasonic mouse calls and birdsong.

    Impaired voice processing in reward and salience circuits predicts social communication in children with autism

    Daniel Arthur Abrams et al.
    Children with autism often 'tune out' the voices in their environment and new results show that impaired processing of voices in the brain's reward system may underlie this social behavior.

    Quantitative regulation of the dynamic steady state of actin networks

    Angelika Manhart et al.
    Cells are able to control the actin network length and steering by adjusting geometric, structural, or biochemical parameters such as ADF/Cofilin and actin concentrations, and network width.

    Timing of the reticular lamina and basilar membrane vibration in living gerbil cochleae

    Wenxuan He et al.
    Heterodyne low-coherence interferometry demonstrates that the latency of the sound-induced reticular lamina vibration is significantly greater than that of the basilar membrane vibration in living gerbil cochleae.

    Coupling between motor cortex and striatum increases during sleep over long-term skill learning

    Stefan M Lemke et al.
    Sleep spindles, distinctive brain activity patterns occurring in non-REM sleep, modify cross-area connectivity in the motor network relevant for behavioral flexibility, impacting subsequent behavior.

    Selective dendritic localization of mRNA in Drosophila mushroom body output neurons

    Jessica Mitchell et al.
    Specific mRNAs localize to the dendrites of Drosophila mushroom body output neurons.
