Cortical interneurons: fit for function and fit to function? Evidence from development and evolution
Cortical inhibitory interneurons form a broad spectrum of subtypes. This diversity suggests a division of labor, in which each cell type supports a distinct function. In the present era of optimisation-based algorithms, ...
Using multi-tracer inference to move beyond single-catchment ecohydrology
Protecting or restoring aquatic ecosystems in the face of growing anthropogenic pressures requires an understanding of hydrological and biogeochemical functioning across multiple spatial and temporal scales. Recent ...
The Tail of the Late Jurassic Sauropod Giraffatitan brancai: Digital Reconstruction of Its Epaxial and Hypaxial Musculature, and Implications for Tail Biomechanics
Dinosaur locomotion and biomechanics, especially of their pelvic girdles and hindlimbs, have been analyzed in numerous studies. However, detailed volumetric musculoskeletal models of their tails are rarely developed. Here, ...
The Role of Petrimonas mucosa ING2-E5AT in Mesophilic Biogas Reactor Systems as Deduced from Multiomics Analyses
Members of the genera Proteiniphilum and Petrimonas were speculated to represent indicators reflecting process instability within anaerobic digestion (AD) microbiomes. Therefore, Petrimonas mucosa ING2-E5AT was isolated ...
PyZebrascope: An Open-Source Platform for Brain-Wide Neural Activity Imaging in Zebrafish
Understanding how neurons interact across the brain to control animal behaviors is one of the central goals in neuroscience. Recent developments in fluorescent microscopy and genetically-encoded calcium indicators led to ...
Coevolution of rostrum and brain in pig species
Domestic pigs have a prominent cortical gyrus (the rostrum gyrus) isomorphic to the contralateral hemirostrum. It is unclear, however, if the size and shape of the rostrum gyrus are of evolutionary/functional relevance. ...
