Mitochondrial Subtype Identification and Characterization.

Related Articles Mitochondrial Subtype Identification and Characterization. Curr Protoc Cytom. 2018 07;85(1):e41 Authors: Daniele JR, Heydari K, Dillin A Abstract Healthy, functional mitochondria are central to many cellular and physiological phenomena, including aging, metabolism, and stress resistance. A key feature of healthy mitochondria is a high membrane potential (Δψ) or charge differential (i.e., proton gradient) […]

Exaggerated groups: amplification in ensemble coding of temporal and spatial features.

Related Articles Exaggerated groups: amplification in ensemble coding of temporal and spatial features. Proc Biol Sci. 2018 05 30;285(1879): Authors: Kanaya S, Hayashi MJ, Whitney D Abstract The human visual system represents summary statistical information (e.g. average) along many visual dimensions efficiently. While studies have indicated that approximately the square root of the number of […]

Binocular non-stereoscopic cues can deceive clinical tests of stereopsis.

Related Articles Binocular non-stereoscopic cues can deceive clinical tests of stereopsis. Sci Rep. 2019 Apr 08;9(1):5789 Authors: Chopin A, Chan SW, Guellai B, Bavelier D, Levi DM Abstract Stereoscopic vision plays a critical role in visual perception; however, it is difficult to assess. In clinical settings, stereoacuity is assessed with clinical stereotests. Observers can use […]

Circadian Control of Neuroendocrine Function: Implications for Health and Disease.

Related Articles Circadian Control of Neuroendocrine Function: Implications for Health and Disease. Curr Opin Physiol. 2018 Oct;5:133-140 Authors: Gotlieb N, Moeller J, Kriegsfeld LJ Abstract The circadian timing system orchestrates daily rhythms in physiology and behavior via the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), the master brain clock. Because endocrine secretions have far-reaching influence on the brain and […]

Copper signaling in the brain and beyond.

Related Articles Copper signaling in the brain and beyond. J Biol Chem. 2018 03 30;293(13):4628-4635 Authors: Ackerman CM, Chang CJ Abstract Transition metals have been recognized and studied primarily in the context of their essential roles as structural and metabolic cofactors for biomolecules that compose living systems. More recently, an emerging paradigm of transition-metal signaling, […]
