    Neural population dynamics in motor cortex are different for reach and grasp

    Aneesha K Suresh et al.
    The neuronal activity in primary motor cortex does not exhibit smooth low-dimensional dynamics during grasp as it does during reach.

    Fine-scale computations for adaptive processing in the human brain

    Elisa Zamboni et al.
    Laminar fMRI reveals that adaptive processing involves recurrent processing within visual cortex and top-down influences from posterior parietal cortex via feedback.

    Extended field-of-view ultrathin microendoscopes for high-resolution two-photon imaging with minimal invasiveness

    Andrea Antonini et al.
    Aberration correction using 3D microprinting in ultrathin microendoscopes allows two-photon imaging of large neuronal networks with homogeneously high spatial resolution and minimal invasiveness in the deep mouse brain.

    The palmitoyl acyltransferase ZDHHC14 controls Kv1-family potassium channel clustering at the axon initial segment

    Shaun S Sanders et al.
    ZDHHC14 controls palmitoylation and axon initial segment targeting of PSD93 and Kv1-family potassium channels, events that are essential for normal neuronal excitability.

    High neural activity accelerates the decline of cognitive plasticity with age in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Qiaochu Li et al.
    Chronic excitation of the Caenorhabditis elegans oxygen-sensing neurons alters calcium homeostasis to accelerate the decline of neural plasticity with age.

    Maternal cortisol is associated with neonatal amygdala microstructure and connectivity in a sexually dimorphic manner

    David Q Stoye et al.
    Prenatal stress is transmitted to infant development through cortisol, which imparts sex-specific effects on the development and connectivity of the amygdalae.

    Structural rearrangement of amyloid-β upon inhibitor binding suppresses formation of Alzheimer’s disease related oligomers

    Tobias Lieblein et al.
    Monitoring the formation of two distinct arrangements in early amyloid-ß aggregation by mass spectrometry and ion mobility allows determination of the effect of potential drug candidates.

    The SSVEP tracks attention, not consciousness, during perceptual filling-in

    Matthew J Davidson et al.
    The strength of frequency-tagged neural activity during perceptual filling anti-correlates with the contents of consciousness, yet positively correlates with a neural measure of attention, dissociating these often confounded brain processes.
