    Allosteric stabilization of calcium and phosphoinositide dual binding engages several synaptotagmins in fast exocytosis

    Janus RL Kobbersmed, Manon MM Berns ... Alexander M Walter
    A mathematical model of neurotransmitter release predicts that a mutual stabilization of calcium and membrane phospholipids binding to synaptotagmin proteins allows several synaptotagmins to work together for fast synaptic transmission.

    Neuroscout, a unified platform for generalizable and reproducible fMRI research

    Alejandro de la Vega, Roberta Rocca ... Tal Yarkoni
    A web-based analysis platform for public fMRI data using naturalistic stimuli, leveraging state-of-the-art feature extraction models to enable more generalizable and reproducible findings.

    Experience-driven rate modulation is reinstated during hippocampal replay

    Margot Tirole, Marta Huelin Gorriz ... Daniel Bendor
    Hippocampal place cells modulate their firing rate during replay events to reflect the increases, or decreases, in firing rate experienced between contexts during behavior.

    Distance estimation from monocular cues in an ethological visuomotor task

    Philip RL Parker, Elliott TT Abe ... Cristopher M Niell
    Mice accurately perform an ethological distance estimation task based on gap jumping and can use monocular cues to estimate distance in addition to binocular cues such as stereopsis.
