    Spatiotemporal establishment of dense bacterial colonies growing on hard agar

    Mya R Warren et al.
    A 3D model captures the growth and expansion dynamics of bacterial colonies, revealing distinct effects of surface tension, mechanical forces, and nutrients on the speed of radial and vertical expansion.

    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.

    Computation identifies structural features that govern neuronal firing properties in slowly adapting touch receptors

    Daine R Lesniak et al.
    Computer simulations show that the firing patterns of branched touch receptors can be set in part by the organization of their sensory endings in the skin.

    Subcellular and supracellular mechanical stress prescribes cytoskeleton behavior in Arabidopsis cotyledon pavement cells

    Arun Sampathkumar et al.
    In the Arabidopsis epidermis, the internal mechanical stress of a cell competes with the external stress to control microtubule behavior, providing a framework to understand the mechanical feedbacks that underlie plant morphogenesis.

    Dynamical feature extraction at the sensory periphery guides chemotaxis

    Aljoscha Schulze et al.
    A computational model for the control of chemotaxis in the Drosophila larva clarifies the link between the peripheral encoding of naturalistic olfactory stimuli and action selection.

    A continuum model of transcriptional bursting

    Adam M Corrigan et al.
    Rather than switching between discrete on and off states, gene transcription exists in a spectrum or continuum of states, with a slowly changing initiation rate modulating the levels of activity.

    Anxiety dissociates the adaptive functions of sensory and motor response enhancements to social threats

    Marwa El Zein et al.
    Social threats trigger enhanced neural representations within 200 milliseconds in sensory and motor systems of the human brain as a function of anxiety, highlighting its adaptive function in reacting rapidly to dangers in the environment.
