    An NMDAR positive and negative allosteric modulator series share a binding site and are interconverted by methyl groups

    Riley Perszyk et al.
    A series of novel compounds selective for N-methyl-D-aspartate-type glutamate receptor includes positive and negative allosteric modulators that act at the same site, show use-dependence, increase agonist potency, and have differential activity based on the agonist concentration.

    Bumblebee visual allometry results in locally improved resolution and globally improved sensitivity

    Gavin J Taylor et al.
    Bigger bumblebee eyes have better vision, yet their field of view, sensitivity, and resolution do not all simply scale up with eye size, being improved locally instead.
