    Genome-wide detection of imprinted differentially methylated regions using nanopore sequencing

    Vahid Akbari et al.
    A genome-wide map of human allele-specific methylation using long-read sequencing detects novel imprinted DNA methylation events and reveals large blocks of subtle parent-of-origin bias in DNA methylation with mutual exclusive allelic H3K36me3 and H3K27me3 histone modifications.

    Waveform detection by deep learning reveals multi-area spindles that are selectively modulated by memory load

    Maryam H Mofrad et al.
    A new computational approach for detecting sleep waveforms reveals that the 11–15 Hz sleep 'spindle', a neural rhythm implicated in memory consolidation, co-occurs widely across cortex much more often than previously thought.

    Computational modeling of threat learning reveals links with anxiety and neuroanatomy in humans

    Rany Abend et al.
    Applying computational modeling to quantify threat learning processes uncovers how variations in these conserved learning processes relate to anxiety severity and the neuroanatomical substrates moderating these associations.
