An accurate, robust, and lightweight technique for measuring eye movements in mice was developed using magnetic sensing, yielding the first high resolution recordings of eye movements in freely moving mice.
CA1 physiology is altered in the hippocampus of Down syndrome mice during both spatial exploration and rest, paralleled by an increase in populations of interneurons responsible for single cell and network synchronization.
Cell fate-mapping with genetically-modified mouse models and cellular markers demonstrates that sensory hair cells in the vestibular portion of the inner ear are a dynamic population in adult mice that undergo cell death and replacement under normal conditions.
When the neuropeptide orexin is peripherally administered in mice with septic shock, it penetrates the blood-brain barrier and acts in the brain to improve survival through multiple autonomic and neuroendocrine pathways.
Combined tissue clearing, 3D-immunofluorescence, and electron tomography spatially revealed the dynamics of early HIV-1 spread within lymphoid tissues of humanized mice at the resolution of single cells and individual virions.
Hydrogen-Deuterium exchange experiments show that Ric-8A induces similar dynamic changes in the structure of Gα as G protein-coupled receptors, yet protects a larger surface of the nucleotide-binding Ras domain.
