Friday Paper List – Posted on Monday May 6th

This list is a little late. Sorry for the small misstep in the posting schedule.

Before the list, I wanted to mention there was a neat article about the Mosers in the New York Times last week. You can check it out here.

1) Power failure: why small sample size undermines the reliability of neuroscience Katherine S. Button, John P. A. Ioannidis, Claire Mokrysz, Brian A. Nosek, Jonathan Flint, Emma S. J. Robinson and Marcus R. Munafo ; Nature Reviews Neuroscience 2013 (link)

2) Optogenetics in primates: a shining future? Annelies Gerits and Wim Vanduffel ; Trends in Genetics 2013 (link)

3) Hierarchy of orofacial rhythms revealed through whisking and breathing Jeffrey D. Moore, Martin Descheˆnes, Takahiro Furuta, Daniel Huber, Matthew C. Smear, Maxime Demers & David Kleinfeld ; Nature 2013 (link)

4) Corticostriatal neurons in auditory cortex drive decisions during auditory discrimination Petr Znamenskiy & Anthony M. Zador ; Nature 2013 (link)

This article looks great. I am a huge fan of projection specific targeting of optogenetic tools. Also I was really shocked that I had somehow missed the existence of this paper:
