    Biophysical mechanisms in the mammalian respiratory oscillator re-examined with a new data-driven computational model

    Ryan S Phillips et al.
    Computational modeling motivated by recent experiments clarifies biophysical mechanisms generating the rhythm and amplitude of breathing at the level of neurons and brain circuits in mammals.

    Neto auxiliary proteins control both the trafficking and biophysical properties of the kainate receptor GluK1

    Nengyin Sheng et al.
    Auxiliary subunits Neto1 and Neto2 regulate the GluK1 receptor targeting to excitatory silent synapses through different molecular mechanisms and also modify receptor biophysics through distinct mechanisms.

    Brain aging comprises many modes of structural and functional change with distinct genetic and biophysical associations

    Stephen M Smith et al.
    Imaging of structure and function in the brain from thousands of participants was used along with genetics and biophysical measures to study many different aspects of how the brain ages.

    Biophysics of object segmentation in a collision-detecting neuron

    Richard Burkett Dewell, Fabrizio Gabbiani
    Active dendritic processing enables an individual neuron to discriminate the spatial pattern of synaptic inputs, increasing neural and behavioral selectivity for escaping an impending threat.

    Biophysical properties of single rotavirus particles account for the functions of protein shells in a multilayered virus

    Manuel Jiménez-Zaragoza et al.
    In triple-layered rotavirus particles, strong interaction between the external and middle layers provides high mechanical strength for protection tasks, while weaker interaction between the middle and inner layers favors transcription.

    Biophysical and physiological processes causing oxygen loss from coral reefs

    Cynthia B Silveira et al.
    Coral reef heterotrophic bacteria and fleshy macroalgae cause oxygen loss from reef systems through microbial biomass accumulation and ebullition from algae surfaces.

    Biophysical models reveal the relative importance of transporter proteins and impermeant anions in chloride homeostasis

    Kira M Düsterwald et al.
    Mathematical models with experimental validation show that chloride transporters in the cell membrane, and not negatively charged impermeant molecules, generate the driving force used by GABA receptors to silence neurons.

    A simple biophysical model emulates budding yeast chromosome condensation

    Tammy MK Cheng et al.
    A computational model of a yeast chromosome, based on first principles, recapitulates in vivo chromosome behavior, and thus provides unprecedented insight into what the inside of a chromosome is likely to look like.
