    Stimulus vignetting and orientation selectivity in human visual cortex

    Zvi N Roth et al.
    Functional MRI measurements of orientation reflect coarse-scale biases that are wholly determined by second-order interactions between the stimulus aperture and the underlying orientation.

    Focal optogenetic suppression in macaque area MT biases direction discrimination and decision confidence, but only transiently

    Christopher R Fetsch et al.
    Perceptual decision making in monkeys can be manipulated by using optogenetics to inactivate functional subregions of visual cortex, but the brain has a capacity to compensate for this perturbation.

    Cryo-EM structure of the benzodiazepine-sensitive α1β1γ2S tri-heteromeric GABAA receptor in complex with GABA

    Swastik Phulera et al.
    Structure of the triheteromeric α1β1γ2S GABAA receptor in complex with GABA illuminates the principles of receptor assembly and agonist binding.

    A transient cortical state with sleep-like sensory responses precedes emergence from general anesthesia in humans

    Laura D Lewis et al.
    Intracranial recordings of human brain activity during awakening from general anesthesia exhibit a brief brain state not seen during loss of consciousness, in which stimuli elicit large electrophysiological responses that resemble those seen in sleep.
