    Urocortin-3 neurons in the mouse perifornical area promote infant-directed neglect and aggression

    Anita E Autry et al.
    Genetic and functional manipulations uncover urocortin-3-expressing neurons in the perifornical area of the hypothalamus as a dedicated circuit component for the expression of infant-directed neglect and aggression in mice.

    Sleeping at the switch

    Maude Bouchard et al.
    Slow and fast switcher slow waves in human sleep show distinct EEG connectivity patterns and homeostatic regulation as well as changes during aging.

    A quadratic model captures the human V1 response to variations in chromatic direction and contrast

    Michael A Barnett et al.
    A quantitative forward model captures fMRI responses to chromatic stimuli in human primary visual cortex and quantifies how chromatic sensitivity changes with eccentricity.

    Non-linear dimensionality reduction on extracellular waveforms reveals cell type diversity in premotor cortex

    Eric Kenji Lee et al.
    WaveMAP is a novel approach that combines nonlinear dimensionality reduction with graph clustering on extracellular waveforms to reveal previously obscured cell type diversity in monkey cortex.

    Synaptotagmin 7 is targeted to the axonal plasma membrane through γ-secretase processing to promote synaptic vesicle docking in mouse hippocampal neurons

    Jason D Vevea et al.
    Synaptotagmin 7 is asymmetrically localized to the axonal plasma membrane through γ-secretase processing to promote vesicle docking during short-term synaptic plasticity in mouse hippocampal neurons.

    Developmental change in prefrontal cortex recruitment supports the emergence of value-guided memory

    Kate Nussenbaum, Catherine A Hartley
    The use of prior experience to adaptively prioritize information in memory increases from childhood to adulthood and engages corticostriatal circuitry.
