Computational Optogenetics: Empirically-Derived Voltage- and Light-Sensitive Channelrhodopsin-2 Model
TLDR
A quantitative model of Channelrhodospin-2, a light-sensitive ion channel, and its variants have emerged as new excitatory optogenetic tools not only in neuroscience, but also in other areas, including cardiac electrophysiology. Expand

Hypertrophic phenotype in cardiac cell assemblies solely by structural cues and ensuing self‐organization
In vitro models of cardiac hypertrophy focus exclusively on applying “external” dynamic signals (electrical, mechanical, and chemical) to achieve a hypertrophic state. In contrast, here we set out toExpand
