    Chronic intermittent hypoxia reveals role of the Postinspiratory Complex in the mediation of normal swallow production

    Alyssa D Huff, Marlusa Karlen-Amarante ... Jan-Marino Ramirez
    Glutamatergic–cholinergic neurons in the postinspiratory complex are critical for swallow motor patterning and the coordination of swallow and breathing, which is disrupted by chronic intermittent hypoxia, a condition seen in many disorders associated with dysphagia and aspiration pneumonia.

    Unifying network model links recency and central tendency biases in working memory

    Vezha Boboeva, Alberto Pezzotta ... Athena Akrami
    Seemingly disparate working memory biases, including short-term serial and contraction biases, may arise from a common mechanism via the interaction of multiple networks, each operating over a distinct timescale.

    Octopamine integrates the status of internal energy supply into the formation of food-related memories

    Michael Berger, Michèle Fraatz ... Henrike Scholz
    Intense starvation with high internal energy levels results in remarkably stable food-related memories that persist beyond actual food intake and are associated with overeating.
