    Receptive field center-surround interactions mediate context-dependent spatial contrast encoding in the retina

    Maxwell H Turner et al.
    In the retina, the receptive field surround preserves the spatial contrast sensitivity of the center in the face of naturalistic changes in local luminance.

    High N-glycan multiplicity is critical for neuronal adhesion and sensitizes the developing cerebellum to N-glycosylation defect

    Daniel Medina-Cano et al.
    Impairment of protein N-glycosylation disrupts neural cell adhesion mediated by highly glycosylated members of the IgSF-CAM protein family.

    Feedback optimizes neural coding and perception of natural stimuli

    Chengjie G Huang et al.
    Neurophysiological and behavioral approaches reveal how coordinated input from descending pathways shapes the tuning properties of electrosensory neurons in order to optimize coding of natural stimuli through temporal whitening.

    Motor thalamus supports striatum-driven reinforcement

    Arnaud L Lalive et al.
    While the basal ganglia have long been thought to mediate learning through dopamine-dependent striatal plasticity, their regulation of motor thalamus plays an unexpected and critical role in reinforcement.
