In models reconstructed from MRI scans of patients with embolic stroke of undetermined source, computational simulations reveal that fibrosis has the intrinsic capacity to sustain arrhythmia drivers when subjected to triggered activity known to exist in patients with atrial fibrillation.
Excitatory synapses that occur further away from the postsynaptic cell soma exhibit greater neurotransmitter release probability, which appears to improve signal transfer fidelity for high-frequency afferent firing.
The essential role of presynaptic NMDA receptors for granule cell GABAergic output elucidates the function of reciprocal spines in recurrent and possibly lateral inhibition of mitral cells during olfactory processsing.
A large interneuron in the Drosophila mushroom body has compartmentalized activity, which causes localized inhibition and predicts that Kenyon cells inhibit themselves more than they inhibit other individual Kenyon cells.
A multi-scale integration of experimental and computational approaches shows how a non-linear dependence of T-type calcium channel gating on GABAB receptor activity regulates thalamic network oscillations.
