Rock comminution as a source of hydrogen for subglacial ecosystems
Microbes live under glaciers that have persisted for millions of years, without a clear energy supply. Analyses of crushed rocks suggest that interactions of glaciers with the rocks beneath canExpand

Neurons associated with the flip‐flop activity in the lateral accessory lobe and ventral protocerebrum of the silkworm moth brain
The lateral accessory lobe (LAL) and the ventral protocerebrum (VPC) are a pair of symmetrical neural structures in the insect brain. The LAL‐VPC is regarded as the major target of olfactoryExpand

Carbon isotope signatures from land snail shells: Implications for palaeovegetation reconstruction in the eastern Mediterranean
In this study we compare carbon isotope values in modern Helix melanostoma shell carbonate (δ13Cshell) from the Gebel al-Akhdar region of Libya with carbon isotope values in H. melanostoma bodyExpand

Variable Neuronal Participation in Stereotypic Motor Programs
To what extent are motor networks underlying rhythmic behaviors rigidly hard-wired versus fluid and dynamic entities? Do the members of motor networks change from moment-to-moment or from motorExpand

Memory Formation in Tritonia via Recruitment of Variably Committed Neurons
Prior studies have found that functional networks can rapidly add neurons as they build short-term memories, yet little is known about the principles underlying this process. Using voltage-sensitiveExpand

Resource pressure and environmental change on the North African littoral: Epipalaeolithic to Roman gastropods from Cyrenaica, Libya
Abstract This paper discusses the marine and terrestrial shell on Epipalaeolithic to Classical-period sites in the Cyrenaican coastlands, northeast Libya, with particular reference to the Haua Fteah,Expand

Validation of independent component analysis for rapid spike sorting of optical recording data.
TLDR
Independent component analysis (ICA) is a technique that can be used to extract the source signals from sets of signal mixtures where the sources themselves are unknown. Expand

Presynaptic effects of biogenic amines modulating synaptic transmission between identified sensory neurons and giant interneurons in the first instar cockroach
Abstract. Intracellular recording was used to investigate the modulatory effects of serotonin and octopamine on the identified synapses between filiform hair sensory afferents and giant interneuronsExpand

A Method for Cryogenic Preservation of Human Biopsy Specimens and Subsequent Organoid Culture
Human tissue–derived gastrointestinal (GI) organoids have revolutionized the study of human biology, and are powerful tools for studying human physiology and disease; however, generation of organoidsExpand
