    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

    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.

    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.
    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

    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.

    Experimental and observational studies find contrasting responses of soil nutrients to climate change

    ZY Yuan et al.
    Experimental manipulations and environmental gradients, the two common-used approaches, are not at all comparable for predicting the impacts of climate change on nutrient cycling.

    Polo-like kinase-dependent phosphorylation of the synaptonemal complex protein SYP-4 regulates double-strand break formation through a negative feedback loop.

    Saravanapriah Nadarajan et al.
    PLK-1/2-mediated SYP-4 phosphorylation is dependent on crossover precursor formation, triggering a switch in the dynamic state of the synaptonemal complex that reduces the formation of further double-strand breaks at late meiotic prophase.

    Centriolar SAS-7 acts upstream of SPD-2 to regulate centriole assembly and pericentriolar material formation

    Kenji Sugioka et al.
    A genetic screen and live cell imaging show that a newly identified coiled-coil protein called SAS-7 is the earliest acting factor in centriole assembly yet identified in the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans.
