    Neural correlations enable invariant coding and perception of natural stimuli in weakly electric fish

    Michael G Metzen et al.
    Neural circuits in weakly electric fish perform a set of computations to allow natural communication signals to be perceived independently of their context.

    Peripheral sensory coding through oscillatory synchrony in weakly electric fish

    Christa A Baker et al.
    Sensory receptors encode stimuli by transiently synchronizing ongoing electrical oscillations, conferring enhanced sensitivity to communication signals produced by large groups of conspecifics.

    Neural activity in a hippocampus-like region of the teleost pallium is associated with active sensing and navigation

    Haleh Fotowat et al.
    Sparse firing in a hippocampus-like structure of the teleost telencephalon is linked to spatial navigation and active sensing.

    Feedback optimizes neural coding and perception of natural stimuli

    Chengjie G Huang et al.
    Neurophysiological and behavioral approaches reveal how coordinated input from descending pathways shapes the tuning properties of electrosensory neurons in order to optimize coding of natural stimuli through temporal whitening.

    Stimulus background influences phase invariant coding by correlated neural activity

    Michael G Metzen, Maurice J Chacron
    Building on previous work (Metzen et al., 2016), a combination of neurophysiological and behavioral approaches reveals that changes in the background strongly impacts invariant coding and perception of behaviourally relevant signals.

    Detection of transient synchrony across oscillating receptors by the central electrosensory system of mormyrid fish

    Alejandro Vélez, Bruce A Carlson
    Building on previous work (Baker et al., 2015), further evidence is reported for a novel mechanism for sensory coding based on the detection of oscillatory synchrony among peripheral receptors.

    Science Forum: The Human Cell Atlas

    Aviv Regev et al.
    Advances in techniques for analysing single cells and tissues have inspired an international effort to create comprehensive reference maps of all human cells - the fundamental units of life - as a basis for both understanding human health and diagnosing, monitoring and treating disease.
  1. Point of View: How should novelty be valued in science?

    Barak A Cohen
    An over-emphasis on novelty is having detrimental effects on science.
