Asymmetrically Positioned Flagellar Control Units Regulate Human Sperm Rotation. Cell Rep. 2018 Sep 04;24(10):2606-2613 Authors: Miller MR, Kenny SJ, Mannowetz N, Mansell SA, Wojcik M, Mendoza S, Zucker RS, Xu K, Lishko PV Abstract Ion channels control sperm navigation within the female reproductive tract and, thus, are critical for their ability to find and fertilize […]

Rapid tuning shifts in human auditory cortex enhance speech intelligibility.

Related Articles Rapid tuning shifts in human auditory cortex enhance speech intelligibility. Nat Commun. 2016 12 20;7:13654 Authors: Holdgraf CR, de Heer W, Pasley B, Rieger J, Crone N, Lin JJ, Knight RT, Theunissen FE Abstract Experience shapes our perception of the world on a moment-to-moment basis. This robust perceptual effect of experience parallels a […]

Reconciling persistent and dynamic hypotheses of working memory coding in prefrontal cortex.

Related Articles Reconciling persistent and dynamic hypotheses of working memory coding in prefrontal cortex. Nat Commun. 2018 Aug 29;9(1):3498 Authors: Cavanagh SE, Towers JP, Wallis JD, Hunt LT, Kennerley SW Abstract Competing accounts propose that working memory (WM) is subserved either by persistent activity in single neurons or by dynamic (time-varying) activity across a neural […]

Eye movements provide insight into individual differences in children’s analogical reasoning strategies.

Related Articles Eye movements provide insight into individual differences in children’s analogical reasoning strategies. Acta Psychol (Amst). 2018 May;186:18-26 Authors: Starr A, Vendetti MS, Bunge SA Abstract Analogical reasoning is considered a key driver of cognitive development and is a strong predictor of academic achievement. However, it is difficult for young children, who are prone […]

Somatosensory maps.

Related Articles Somatosensory maps. Handb Clin Neurol. 2018;151:73-102 Authors: Harding-Forrester S, Feldman DE Abstract Somatosensory areas containing topographic maps of the body surface are a major feature of parietal cortex. In primates, parietal cortex contains four somatosensory areas, each with its own map, with the primary cutaneous map in area 3b. Rodents have at least […]
