    Sigma oscillations protect or reinstate motor memory depending on their temporal coordination with slow waves

    Judith Nicolas et al.
    Sigma oscillations have a dual role in motor memory consolidation depending on their temporal coordination with slow waves during post-learning sleep.

    Cognitive experience alters cortical involvement in goal-directed navigation

    Charlotte Arlt et al.
    The areas of the cerebral cortex that are necessary for mice to perform goal-directed navigation differ depending on previous experience in cognitively challenging tasks.

    Integration of visual and antennal mechanosensory feedback during head stabilization in hawkmoths

    Payel Chatterjee et al.
    Compensatory head movements in hawkmoths are influenced by the combined feedback from vision and antennal mechanosensory Johnston’s organs, similar to the combined role of vision and halteres in Diptera.

    Neural mechanisms underlying the temporal organization of naturalistic animal behavior

    Luca Mazzucato
    Naturalistic animal behavior exhibits a complex organization in the temporal domain, whose variability stems from hierarchical, contextual, and stochastic sources and can be naturally explained in terms of metastable attractor models.

    Combining hypothesis- and data-driven neuroscience modeling in FAIR workflows

    Olivia Eriksson et al.
    Increased usability and validity of neuroscience models, through FAIR workflows for the whole modeling process, including data and model management, parameter estimation, uncertainty quantification, and model analysis.

    Perceptual restoration fails to recover unconscious processing for smooth eye movements after occipital stroke

    Sunwoo Kwon et al.
    V1 damage impairs unconscious following movements of stimulus motion, even after conscious perception has been restored through psychophysical training, thus demonstrating distinct neural pathways for perception and action.

    Structural differences in adolescent brainscan predict alcohol misuse

    Roshan Prakash Rane et al.
    Structural differences in adolescent brains associated with binge drinking might be preceding the onset of such behavior, suggesting a reevaluation of studies of the effects of alcohol on the adolescent brain.
