Among children in low-resource settings, diverse enteropathogens share common, population-level antibody dynamics, which creates a new opportunity to estimate transmission through serologic surveillance.
A first-principles acoustics model reveals how the acoustic spectrum generated by flapping wings originates from oscillating aerodynamic forces, and is validated by in vivo aerodynamic force measurements and acoustic holography.
The forces that multicellular tumor aggregates exert on their environment lead to non-linear, scale-invariant tissue deformations far away from the tumor, which can be exploited to quantify its collective contractility.
Patterns of coordinated activity in the basal ganglia predict how much force we will use to grip objects, suggesting that individuals with paralysis may ultimately be able to use these signals to control graded responses in robotic devices.
The integrated quantification of spontaneous dynamic cell-cell force transmissions at both multi-cellular and subcellular scales enables spatiotemporal correlations of stress distribution with biomolecules in small cell clusters.
Perturbation of mechanical force at muscle attachments and its effects on tendon morphogenesis provides insights into the mechanisms underlying cellular responses to tensional force and resulting extracellular matrix production.
