This paper offers a valuable comparison to guide neuroscientists in choosing an appropriate spike sorting algorithm.
This paper presents an elegant study examining neuronal activation in multiple brain regions involved in learning and consolidation of an alternation task.
The authors show that voltage-gated sodium channels in vomeronasal sensory neurons undergo slow inactivation and this can contribute to the spike adaption caused by repeated stimuli.
The authors show that people use two distinct strategies when choosing between multiple options with an uncertain outcome.
The authors target an important question in the field of neurobiology of obesity and their results suggest a dimorphic response to female animals.
Results of this study suggest that decreased responding to food-associated cues when food becomes less desirable are due to changes in the excitability of neurons in the nucleus accumbens.
Editor's Pick: Does Learning a Second Language Rely on Familiarity with Native Language Orthography?
Authors tested whether native English-speaking adults could learn a second, visually atypical writing system, HouseFont, and used neuroimaging data to assess the location of any learning effects.
Authors provide the first functional description of the emergence of neocortical fast ripples in hippocampal epilepsy and show that cross-frequency coupling might be a fundamental mechanism underlying the spreading of epileptic activity.
Editor's Pick: Opposing Roles of Inhibitory Signaling in Basolateral Amygdala Subdivisions in Auditory Fear Learning
Authors show that excitation and inhibition of pyramidal neurons in different basolateral amygdala subdivisions promote auditory fear memory formation.
Authors used a novel method to show that selectively activating cholecystokinin-expressing GABAergic neurons subtly affects emotional behavior but surprisingly enhances multiple memory and cognitive processes.
