    Translation of dipeptide repeat proteins in C9ORF72 ALS/FTD through unique and redundant AUG initiation codons

    Yoshifumi Sonobe, Soojin Lee ... Paschalis Kratsios
    Mutational analysis in cell-based models of C9ORF72 ALS/FTD identifies canonical translation initiation codons (AUG) on the antisense CCCCGG transcript as initiation sites for synthesis of neurotoxic dipeptide repeat proteins.

    Removal of extracellular human amyloid beta aggregates by extracellular proteases in C. elegans

    Elisabeth Jongsma, Anita Goyala ... Collin Yvès Ewald
    A novel Caenorhabditis elegans model that secretes human amyloid beta forms aggregates in the extracellular matrix, which are removed by activation of extracellular matrix dynamics.

    Task-dependent optimal representations for cerebellar learning

    Marjorie Xie, Samuel P Muscinelli ... Ashok Litwin-Kumar
    Classical theoretical approaches to studying the cerebellar cortex are generalized to a broader set of learning tasks, revealing that the optimal value for the sparsity of granule cell activity is task-dependent.
