    Heritability and cross-species comparisons of human cortical functional organization asymmetry

    Bin Wan et al.
    Human brain suggests an asymmetric organization along a functional cortical axis describing a hierarchical functional trajectory from perceptual/action to abstract cognition, which is heritable and comparable with macaque brain, suggesting (phylo)genetic conservation and adaptation.

    Inhibition of itch by neurokinin 1 receptor (Tacr1) -expressing ON cells in the rostral ventromedial medulla in mice

    Taylor Follansbee et al.
    Activation of Tacr1-expressing neurons including ON cells in the rostral ventromedial medulla inhibits acute and chronic itch-related behavior.

    TRPV1 drugs alter core body temperature via central projections of primary afferent sensory neurons

    Wendy Wing Sze Yue et al.
    Capsaicin and other vanilloid receptor ligands alter core body temperature by perturbing central thermoregulatory pathways through activation/inhibition of TRPV1 receptors on peripheral sensory nerve fibers.

    Understanding implicit sensorimotor adaptation as a process of proprioceptive re-alignment

    Jonathan S Tsay et al.
    A new computational model reveals how implicit sensorimotor adaptation is elicited to re-align one's felt and desired hand position.
