    GABAA presynaptic inhibition regulates the gain and kinetics of retinal output neurons

    Jenna Nagy et al.
    Elimination of GABAA receptors from the axon terminals of specific retinal bipolar cell types alters the sensitivity and kinetics of retinal output.

    Medical education and distrust modulate the response of insular-cingulate network and ventral striatum in pain diagnosis

    Giada Dirupo et al.
    Behavioral and neural data converge in showing that medical experience reduces reactions to others' pain and distrust toward the target affects the processing of his feedback.

    Robust and distributed neural representation of action values

    Eun Ju Shin et al.
    Action-value signals previously found in many brain areas can be accounted for neither by concurrent serial correlations in neural activity and action value nor by signals for other decision variables.

    Creating and controlling visual environments using BonVision

    Gonçalo Lopes et al.
    BonVision is an open-source software for real-time rendering and control of 2D and 3D visual environments that also enables easy replication of experiments.

    fMRI-based detection of alertness predicts behavioral response variability

    Sarah E Goodale et al.
    Time-varying states of alertness that shape behavioral responses may be detected from fMRI signal patterns.
