    Muscle-specific economy of force generation and efficiency of work production during human running

    Sebastian Bohm et al.
    During human running, the soleus muscle was found to operate as work generator under optimal conditions for work production (high force-length potential and enthalpy efficiency) while the vastus lateralis promoted tendon energy storage and economical force generation (high force-length-velocity potential).

    Monosynaptic premotor circuit tracing reveals neural substrates for oro-motor coordination

    Edward Stanek IV et al.
    Retrograde tracing of the neural circuits that control movement of the jaw and tongue reveals how shared premotor neurons help to ensure coordinated muscle activity.

    Functionally heterogeneous human satellite cells identified by single cell RNA sequencing

    Emilie Barruet et al.
    Single cell RNA sequencing leads to identification and separation of transcriptionally and functionally heterogeneous, natural human satellite cells, including a subpopulation marked by CAV1 harboring quiescence phenotypes and engraftment potential.

    Transcriptomic analyses reveal rhythmic and CLOCK-driven pathways in human skeletal muscle

    Laurent Perrin et al.
    Rhythmic transcriptome analyses of human skeletal muscle tissue and cultured primary myotubes reveal an essential role for the circadian coordination of glucose homeostasis and lipid metabolism in human skeletal muscle.

    Dynamic neuromuscular remodeling precedes motor-unit loss in a mouse model of ALS

    Éric Martineau et al.
    Motor axons undergo dynamic branch-specific changes for weeks before complete neuronal degeneration in a model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, highlighting the importance of peripheral factors, intrinsic and extrinsic to motoneurons.

    Adaptation after vastus lateralis denervation in rats demonstrates neural regulation of joint stresses and strains

    Cristiano Alessandro et al.
    The adaptation strategy used by the nervous system following muscle paralysis restores task performance while minimizing the stresses and strains within a joint.

    The cerebellum linearly encodes whisker position during voluntary movement

    Susu Chen et al.
    Cerebellar Purkinje cells represent movements via bidirectional linear changes in spike rate, and activity from single cells is sufficient to reconstruct kinematic changes during bouts of free whisking.

    An excitatory lateral hypothalamic circuit orchestrating pain behaviors in mice

    Justin N Siemian et al.
    A small population of lateral hypothalamic neurons detects pain and can be activated to suppress pain-related behavioral adaptations and the unpleasantness associated with pain in mice.

    Muscle-specific stress fibers give rise to sarcomeres in cardiomyocytes

    Aidan M Fenix et al.
    Sarcomeres in heart muscle cells come from stress fiber-like structures that are mechanistically distinct from stress fibers in non-muscle cells.

    An electrophysiological marker of arousal level in humans

    Janna D Lendner et al.
    Non-oscillatory brain activity can be used to monitor arousal levels during both NREM and REM sleep as well as under general anesthesia with propofol.
