    Brian 2, an intuitive and efficient neural simulator

    Marcel Stimberg et al.
    Brian 2 is a software package for neural simulations that makes it both easy and computationally efficient to define original models for computational experiment.

    A toolbox of nanobodies developed and validated for use as intrabodies and nanoscale immunolabels in mammalian brain neurons

    Jie-Xian Dong et al.
    Nanobodies are developed that target neuronal proteins with restricted subcellular distributions and used as intrabodies to deliver cargo to specific sites within neurons and nanoscale immunolabels for improved imaging resolution.

    Motor cortex signals for each arm are mixed across hemispheres and neurons yet partitioned within the population response

    Katherine Cora Ames, Mark M Churchland
    Neurons in motor cortex contain information about each arm, but these signals are separated into different dimensions, allowing separate control of each arm.

    Science Forum: Ten common statistical mistakes to watch out for when writing or reviewing a manuscript

    Tamar R Makin, Jean-Jacques Orban de Xivry
    What can authors and reviewers do to keep common statistical mistakes out of the literature?

    Electrocorticographic dissociation of alpha and beta rhythmic activity in the human sensorimotor system

    Arjen Stolk et al.
    Direct cortical recordings in humans link the spectral structure of local field potentials to inhibition/disinhibition mechanisms coordinating sensorimotor neuronal populations during movement imagery.

    An arbitrary-spectrum spatial visual stimulator for vision research

    Katrin Franke et al.
    Towards a community effort, we here present a flexible yet standardised visual stimulator design based on open hardware and software.

    Self-organization of modular network architecture by activity-dependent neuronal migration and outgrowth

    Samora Okujeni, Ulrich Egert
    Activity-dependent neurite outgrowth and neuronal migration interact to shape modular mesoscale network architecture by homeostatic self-organization.
