    Resonating neurons stabilize heterogeneous grid-cell networks

    Divyansh Mittal, Rishikesh Narayanan
    Intrinsic neuronal resonance stabilizes heterogeneous neural networks by suppressing low-frequency perturbations.

    Inversion of pheromone preference optimizes foraging in C. elegans

    Martina Dal Bello et al.
    Worms' attraction to pheromones turns into repulsion when a food patch is depleted, helping them avoid already exploited territories and search for new food sources.

    High-speed, three-dimensional imaging reveals chemotactic behaviour specific to human-infective Leishmania parasites

    Rachel C Findlay et al.
    High-speed holographic microscopy shows that Leishmania parasites modify their swimming behaviour to target human macrophages.

    Wnt- and glutamate-receptors orchestrate stem cell dynamics and asymmetric cell division

    Sergi Junyent et al.
    Receptors for two distinct pathways are linked to choreograph the dynamic interaction of Wnt on the stem cell membrane, which leads to the control of asymmetric cell division.

    TRPM channels mediate learned pathogen avoidance following intestinal distention

    Adam Filipowicz et al.
    Behavioral assays using Caenorhabditis elegans show that a learned pathogen avoidance following intestinal distention requires specific chemosensory neurons and TRPM channels in the intestine and excretory cell.

    Artistoo, a library to build, share, and explore simulations of cells and tissues in the web browser

    Inge MN Wortel, Johannes Textor
    By letting users build interactive simulations directly in a web browser, Artistoo unlocks new ways to communicate, teach, and collaborate in computational biology research.

    Corollary discharge promotes a sustained motor state in a neural circuit for navigation

    Ni Ji et al.
    A primary sensory interneuron in the thermotaxis circuit of C. elegans integrates sensory input and corollary discharge to drive persistent navigational states and movement towards preferred environments.

    Inflammation rapidly recruits mammalian GMP and MDP from bone marrow into regional lymphatics

    Juana Serrano-Lopez et al.
    Endotoxemia recruits fast-acting anti-inflammatory innate myeloid progenitors from bone marrow into regional lymphatics through release of pre-formed Ccl19 secondary to NF-κB-independent, Traf6/IκB kinase-dependent signaling.

    Confinement discerns swarmers from planktonic bacteria

    Weijie Chen et al.
    For the same bacterial strain, the swarming phenotype can be biophysically discerned from swimming phenotype based on the motion pattern under circular confinement on a soft agar.

    Morphological and genomic shifts in mole-rat ‘queens’ increase fecundity but reduce skeletal integrity

    Rachel A Johnston et al.
    In cooperatively breeding Damaraland mole-rats, transitioning to 'queen' results in extensive gene regulatory and morphological remodeling, but also costs to skeletal integrity that scale with reproductive investment.
