Brain-Derived Steroids and Behaviors  

Colin J. Saldanha

Online publication date:
May 2019
Since the early 1980s, evidence suggesting that the vertebrate brain is a rich source of steroid hormones has been decisive and extensive. This evidence includes data from many vertebrate ... More

Genetics and Evolution of Color Vision in Primates  

Gerald H. Jacobs

Online publication date:
May 2019
Color is a central feature of human perceptual experience where it functions as a critical component in the detection, identification, evaluation, placement, and appreciation of objects in ... More

Sensing the Environment With Whiskers  

Mathew H. Evans, Michaela S.E. Loft, Dario Campagner, and Rasmus S. Petersen

Online publication date:
May 2019
Whiskers (vibrissae) are prominent on the snout of many mammals, both terrestrial and aquatic. The defining feature of whiskers is that they are rooted in large follicles with dense ... More

Single Neuron Computational Modeling  

Yeonjoo Yoo and Fabrizio Gabbiani

Online publication date:
May 2019
Computational modeling is essential to understand how the complex dendritic structure and membrane properties of a neuron process input signals to generate output signals. Compartmental ... More

Stereopsis and Depth Perception  

Andrew J. Parker

Online publication date:
May 2019
Humans and some animals can use their two eyes in cooperation to detect and discriminate parts of the visual scene based on depth. Owing to the horizontal separation of the eyes, each eye ... More

Transcriptomic Architecture of Reproductive Plasticity  

Susan C. P. Renn and Nadia Aubin-Horth

Online publication date:
May 2019
Several species show diversity in reproductive patterns that result from phenotypic plasticity. This reproductive plasticity is found for example in mate choice, parental care, ... More

Evolution of Neocortex for Sensory Processing  

Jon H. Kaas

Online publication date:
Mar 2019
The neocortex is a part of the forebrain of mammals that is an innovation of mammal-like “reptilian” synapsid ancestors of early mammals. This neocortex emerged from a small region of ... More

Deep Neural Networks in Computational Neuroscience  

Tim C. Kietzmann, Patrick McClure, and Nikolaus Kriegeskorte

Online publication date:
Jan 2019
The goal of computational neuroscience is to find mechanistic explanations of how the nervous system processes information to give rise to cognitive function and behavior. At the heart of ... More

Physiology of Color Vision in Primates  

Robert Shapley

Online publication date:
Jan 2019
Color perception in macaque monkeys and humans depends on the visually evoked activity in three cone photoreceptors and on neuronal post-processing of cone signals. Neuronal ... More

Autonomic Thermoregulation  

Thad E. Wilson and Kristen Metzler-Wilson

Online publication date:
Aug 2018
Thermoregulation is a key physiologic homeostatic process and is subdivided into autonomic, behavioral, and adaptive divisions. Autonomic thermoregulation is a neural process related to ... More
