    Centrally expressed Cav3.2 T-type calcium channel is critical for the initiation and maintenance of neuropathic pain

    Sophie L Fayad, Guillaume Ourties ... Nathalie Leresche
    Specific deletion of Cav3.2 channels in anterior pretectal neurons reduced mechanical and cold allodynia, pointing to Cav3.2 channels as prime targets to develop innovative analgesic pharmacology that will not only act at the peripheral level but also in central structures.

    The evolution and biological correlates of hand preferences in anthropoid primates

    Kai R Caspar, Fabian Pallasdies ... Sabine Begall
    Primate hand preference strength but not direction (left vs. right) generally reflects phylogeny and ecology at species level, but human handedness deviates markedly from all other species.

    Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder symptoms and brain morphology: Examining confounding bias

    Lorenza Dall'Aglio, Hannah H Kim ... Henning Tiemeier
    Approximately half of the associations identified between attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and brain morphology in two large independent studies of adolescents are likely due to confounding bias by socioeconomic and parental behavioral factors.
