    Post-decision processing in primate prefrontal cortex influences subsequent choices on an auditory decision-making task

    Joji Tsunada et al.
    A behavioral model, neuronal recordings, and electrical microstimulation reveal that the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex plays a causal role in evaluating prior decisions and biasing future decisions.

    Accelerated redevelopment of vocal skills is preceded by lasting reorganization of the song motor circuitry

    Michiel Vellema et al.
    The ability to quickly re-acquire a previously lost motor skill is associated with lasting synaptic changes in the brain circuit that controls that motor skill.

    Complementary congruent and opposite neurons achieve concurrent multisensory integration and segregation

    Wen-Hao Zhang et al.
    Opposite neurons in multisensory areas compute the cue disparity information essential for information segregation.

    The dorsomedial prefrontal cortex computes task-invariant relative subjective value for self and other

    Matthew Piva et al.
    Activity in the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex encodes relative subjective value in a common neural code across decision-making for self and other and across tasks with divergent cognitive requirements.

    FOXP2 exhibits projection neuron class specific expression, but is not required for multiple aspects of cortical histogenesis

    Ryan J Kast et al.
    Foxp2 is dispensable for several features of cortical development that were previously considered to depend on its function.

    Local online learning in recurrent networks with random feedback

    James M Murray
    A biologically plausible learning rule enables recurrent neural networks to model the way in which neural circuits use supervised learning to perform time-dependent computations.

    Multiple mechanisms link prestimulus neural oscillations to sensory responses

    Luca Iemi et al.
    Neural oscillations prior to a stimulus modulate the strength of early and late responses in opposite directions via distinct mechanisms.

    A counter gradient of Activin A and follistatin instructs the timing of hair cell differentiation in the murine cochlea

    Meenakshi Prajapati-DiNubila et al.
    Opposing gradients of activin A and follistatin within the spiral shaped mammalian cochlea instruct the graded pattern of mechano-sensory hair cell formation.
