    ACC neural ensemble dynamics are structured by strategy prevalence

    Mikhail Proskurin, Maxim Manakov, Alla Karpova
    Anterior Cingulate Cortex displays robust tracking during strategy execution of a summary statistic for that strategy in recent behavioral history, suggesting a role for this brain region in estimating which actions promote the occurrence of events in the environment.

    Postsynaptic mitochondria are positioned to support functional diversity of dendritic spines

    Connon I Thomas, Melissa A Ryan ... Benjamin Scholl
    Correlated light and electron microscopy of cortical neurons reveals a local organization of mitochondria near dendritic spines with diverse functional properties.

    Opposing chemosensory functions of closely related gustatory receptors

    Ji-Eun Ahn, Hubert Amrein
    Live imaging and taste behavior analyses show that related members of the Gr28 gene subfamily are expressed in largely non-overlapping sets of neurons and mediate opposing taste behaviors.

    Adaptive biasing of action-selective cortical build-up activity by stimulus history

    Anke Braun, Tobias H Donner
    Prior expectations about the state of the sensory environment are dynamically updated in a context-dependent manner and selectively bias the build-up of human motor cortical activity during subsequent decisions.

    Modeling apical and basal tree contribution to orientation selectivity in a mouse primary visual cortex layer 2/3 pyramidal cell

    Konstantinos-Evangelos Petousakis, Ji Young Park ... Panayiota Poirazi
