    Presynaptic Rac1 in the hippocampus selectively regulates working memory

    Jaebin Kim, Edwin Bustamante ... Scott H Soderling
    Presynaptic Rac1 inhibition in the hippocampus impairs spatial working memory, potentially by modulating the synaptic cytoskeleton and kinase-mediated phosphorylation of key synaptic vesicle proteins.

    Shared structure facilitates working memory of multiple sequences

    Qiaoli Huang, Huan Luo
    Common cognitive maps across feature dimensions are spontaneously leveraged to facilitate storage of multiple sequences via compressed encoding and neural replay in human working memory.

    Sex differences in discrimination behavior and orbitofrontal engagement during context-gated reward prediction

    Sophie Peterson, Amanda Maheras ... Ronald Keiflin
    Rodent model of context-dependent discrimination reveals sex-biased tradeoff between speed of acquisition and robustness of contextual control over cue-elicited reward seeking, linked to orbitofrontal cortex activation.
