    The periaqueductal gray and Bayesian integration in placebo analgesia

    Arvina Grahl et al.
    Bayesian integration is able to predict placebo treatment outcomes by focusing especially on the influence of the precision of expectations.

    A dynamic mechanism for allosteric activation of Aurora kinase A by activation loop phosphorylation

    Emily F Ruff et al.
    Phosphorylation of Aurora A does not trigger a population shift to the active state as previously thought, but instead switches the kinase on by tuning the structure and dynamics of a dynamically sampled subpopulation.

    Pi-Pi contacts are an overlooked protein feature relevant to phase separation

    Robert McCoy Vernon et al.
    Statistics on the frequencies of pi interactions in folded protein structures enable successful prediction of intrinsically disordered protein phase separation, with clear implications for a physical understanding of cellular organization.

    Antibiotic-induced population fluctuations and stochastic clearance of bacteria

    Jessica Coates et al.
    The extinction of bacterial populations by antibiotics is stochastic and can be predicted only probabilistically, not deterministically.

    Global morphogenetic flow is accurately predicted by the spatial distribution of myosin motors

    Sebastian J Streichan et al.
    Epithelial tissue remodeling during Drosophila embryonic development is quantitatively described by a simple law relating myosin activity and cell flow.

    Why plants make puzzle cells, and how their shape emerges

    Aleksandra Sapala et al.
    Puzzle-shape cells in the epidermis of many plants form due to a development constraint based on mechanical forces.

    Energetics and conformational pathways of functional rotation in the multidrug transporter AcrB

    Yasuhiro Matsunaga et al.
    High-performance computing simulations reveal how two remote sites in the multidrug transporter AcrB work together for drug extrusion using the proton-motive force.

    Stochastic resonance mediates the state-dependent effect of periodic stimulation on cortical alpha oscillations

    Jérémie Lefebvre et al.
    Stochastic resonance, triggered by fluctuations in brain state, is found to determine the outcomes of periodic stimulation and how it interacts with brain oscillations.

    FoxP2 isoforms delineate spatiotemporal transcriptional networks for vocal learning in the zebra finch

    Zachary Daniel Burkett et al.
    Basal ganglia gene coexpression patterns shift across the sensorimotor critical period for vocal learning.

    Dissection of affinity captured LINE-1 macromolecular complexes

    Martin S Taylor et al.
    The range of molecular forms adopted by L1 retrotransposons reflect a tapestry of lifecycle-permissive and -restrictive host-parasite interactions occurring within cells.
