    Mice in a labyrinth show rapid learning, sudden insight, and efficient exploration

    Matthew Rosenberg et al.
    Mice exploring a labyrinth freely for the first time learn a complex action sequence after a handful of rewards, exhibiting a learning rate 1000-fold higher than in commonly-used paradigms.

    Place-cell capacity and volatility with grid-like inputs

    Man Yi Yim et al.
    A very large number of place-field maps can be robustly learned by association of external cues with the grid-driven response, however plasticity in the grid-cell inputs renders the place-cell responses volatile.

    A fusion peptide in preS1 and the human protein disulfide isomerase ERp57 are involved in hepatitis B virus membrane fusion process

    Jimena Pérez-Vargas et al.
    The mechanism triggering HBV membrane fusion involves ERp57, a cellular protein disulfide isomerase, and ultimately leads to the exposition of a fusion peptide that was identified in the pre-S1 determinant.

    A deep learning algorithm to translate and classify cardiac electrophysiology

    Parya Aghasafari et al.
    A deep learning network can classify cardiac myocytes into drug-free and drugged categories and predict the impact of electrophysiological perturbation across the continuum of aging.

    Control of tissue development and cell diversity by cell cycle-dependent transcriptional filtering

    Maria Abou Chakra et al.
    A mathematical model predicts that cell cycle duration acts as a transcriptional filter and directly affects cell diversity in early eukaryotic development.

    Identical sequences found in distant genomes reveal frequent horizontal transfer across the bacterial domain

    Michael Sheinman et al.
    Horizontal gene transfer between distantly related bacterial species is frequent and widespread and can be efficiently identified using alignment-free methods.
