NLRP1 restricts butyrate producing commensals to exacerbate inflammatory bowel disease OPEN
Hazel Tye, Chien-Hsiung Yu, Lisa A. Simms, Marcel R. de Zoete, Man Lyang Kim, Martha Zakrzewski, Jocelyn S. Penington, Cassandra R. Harapas, Fernando Souza-Fonseca-Guimaraes, Leesa F. Wockner, Adele Preaudet, Lisa A. Mielke, Stephen A. Wilcox, Yasunori Ogura, Sinead C. Corr, Komal Kanojia, Konstantinos A. Kouremenos, David P. De Souza, Malcolm J. McConville, Richard A. Flavell et al.

The inflammasome is normally activated by pathogens to induce tissue inflammation. Here the authors show that, in mouse experimental colitis models, Nlrp1 inflammasome sensor activates IL-18 to reduce beneficial colonic Clostridiales species, thereby decreasing microbial butyrate and its protective effects on colitis.

Finding any Waldo with zero-shot invariant and efficient visual search OPEN
Mengmi Zhang, Jiashi Feng, Keng Teck Ma, Joo Hwee Lim, Qi Zhao & Gabriel Kreiman

Visual search requires recognizing an object “invariantly”, despite changes in its appearance. Here, the authors show that humans can efficiently and invariantly search for objects in complex scenes and introduce a biologically-inspired zero-shot model that captures human eye movements during search.

Hierarchical rupture growth evidenced by the initial seismic waveforms OPEN
Takashi Okuda & Satoshi Ide

The degree to which small and large earthquakes share the same rupture processes remains unknown. Here, the authors reveal earthquakes of magnitude 3–5 share almost identical growth processes shared, but while they are controlled by some characteristic structures, their final size remains unpredictable.
