    Brain representations of motion and position in the double-drift illusion

    Noah J Steinberg, Zvi N Roth ... Elisha Merriam
    The 'double-drift' illusion involves integration of retinal and non-retinal signals in the human visual cortex, providing evidence for a perceptual representation that incorporates extraretinal information.

    Pan-cortical 2-photon mesoscopic imaging and neurobehavioral alignment in awake, behaving mice

    Evan D Vickers, David A McCormick
    Procedures were developed to perform mesoscale 2-photon Ca2+ imaging simultaneously from all of mouse dorsolateral neocortex, facilitating identification of widespread neural ensembles with activity related to diverse aspects of behavior.

    Reactivation strength during cued recall is modulated by graph distance within cognitive maps

    Simon Kern, Juliane Nagel ... Gordon B Feld
    Items retrieved from cognitive maps are reactivated simultaneously or sequentially depending on the performance, where in the first case the reactivation strength reflects the distance within the map.
