    Coupling between fast and slow oscillator circuits in Cancer borealis is temperature-compensated

    Daniel Powell et al.
    The mechanism that couples two rhythmic circuits is maintained over a large temperature range although both circuits are temperature-sensitive.

    Two central pattern generators from the crab, Cancer borealis, respond robustly and differentially to extreme extracellular pH

    Jessica A Haley et al.
    The rhythms generated by the stomatogastric and cardiac ganglia of the Jonah crab are surprisingly robust but differentially sensitive to acute changes in extracellular pH from pH 5.5 to 10.4.

    Sloppy morphological tuning in identified neurons of the crustacean stomatogastric ganglion

    Adriane G Otopalik et al.
    Reliable neuronal physiology can arise from variable and inefficient morphologies.
    1. Neuroscience

    When complex neuronal structures may not matter

    Adriane G Otopalik et al.
    Animal-to-animal variability in neuronal geometry may be compensated for by compact electrotonic structure.
    1. Neuroscience

    Short-term synaptic dynamics control the activity phase of neurons in an oscillatory network

    Diana Martinez et al.
    The phase of a neuron in an oscillatory network can remain independent of network frequency when synaptic input strength and peak phase are adjusted in a frequency-dependent manner.

    Dopamine maintains network synchrony via direct modulation of gap junctions in the crustacean cardiac ganglion

    Brian J Lane et al.
    Dopamine is able to ensure that neural networks maintain critical features of their output, such as synchrony of neuron firing, by directly increasing coupling strength to ensure robust output is maintained.

    Luqin-like RYamide peptides regulate food-evoked responses in C. elegans

    Hayao Ohno et al.
    Identification and functional characterization of C. elegans luqin-like arginine-tyrosine-NH2 (RYamide) peptides reveal their critical role in feeding-related processes.

    Whole genome comparison of a large collection of mycobacteriophages reveals a continuum of phage genetic diversity

    Welkin H Pope et al.
    A continuum of genome relationships is discovered through comparative genomics of 627 sequenced mycobacteriophages isolated and characterized in an integrated research/education initiative.
    1. Neuroscience

    Neuronal morphologies built for reliable physiology in a rhythmic motor circuit

    Adriane G Otopalik et al.
    Neurite geometry enables expansive and highly-branched neuronal structures to operate like single electrical compartments and simple linear integrators.
    1. Neuroscience

    Synergistic plasticity of intrinsic conductance and electrical coupling restores synchrony in an intact motor network

    Brian J Lane et al.
    Neural networks like the crustacean cardiac ganglion employ multi-faceted compensatory mechanisms to achieve the stability and robustness that are critical to long-term function.
