    Design of biochemical pattern forming systems from minimal motifs

    Philipp Glock et al.
    Theoretical analysis and in vitro reconstitution of a biological reaction-diffusion system identify key functional motifs as well as underlying principles and enable rebuilding pattern formation in a modular fashion.

    Replay as wavefronts and theta sequences as bump oscillations in a grid cell attractor network

    Louis Kang, Michael R DeWeese
    An experimentally supported model of grid cells naturally enables them to participate in firing sequences that encode rapid trajectories in space.

    Analysis of stochastic fluctuations in responsiveness is a critical step toward personalized anesthesia

    Andrew R McKinstry-Wu et al.
    Responses to anesthetics differ among individuals and fluctuate stochastically despite constant drug concentration, however, the amount of noise driving transitions between the responsive and the unresponsive state is conserved.

    Nucleolar dynamics and interactions with nucleoplasm in living cells

    Christina M Caragine et al.
    The nucleoplasm surrounding nucleoli in living cells plays a key role in nucleolar dynamics and shape fluctuations in vivo.

    Length regulation of multiple flagella that self-assemble from a shared pool of components

    Thomas G Fai et al.
    In the microbe Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, a disassembly rate which depends on flagellar length provides an effective method to regulate the length of its two flagella.

    Optical estimation of absolute membrane potential using fluorescence lifetime imaging

    Julia R Lazzari-Dean et al.
    Fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy, paired with fluorescent, voltage-sensitive dyes, provides a method for measuring and quantifying membrane potentials of living cells.
