Wow, this is EXACTLY what came to my mind when I read the question. No doubt this article is one of the coolest studies out there. It is incredibly creative and technically challenging. Great suggestion Ian!

What a great question, Bill! BTW, it sounds like a nice way to put together
the perfect reading list for a seminar class. Can I suggest either that the
replies go to the whole list or that Bill posts the results?

Maybe I'm guilty of some kind of recency effect with this suggestion since
I just used it in class but if they have some interest in plasticity and
behavior I'd have to suggest von Melchner, Pallas, & Sur (2000):

It was preceded by a companion paper by Sharma, Angelucci, & Sur (2000)
that is purely physiological:

I suppose if you're going to publish in Nature you might as well do it in
bunches!
