It is well known that, in the case of vision, when both eyes are used together, seen objects appear projected at different distances from the individual; but that, when only one eye is used, this projection of seen objects is not obtained with the same perfection, and the field of vision appears to be flat. That a phenomenon in some degree comparable to this may be obtained in the case of hearing, may be demonstrated by the following experiment. A simple binaural stethoscope with flexible… 
Time-delay model of perceptual decision making in cortical networks
TLDR
This work builds a model to simulate dynamics of a very simple decision-making network consisting of two subpopulations and demonstrates that criticality in the network can account for ambiguity in decision making, and cause perceptual switches observed in human experiments.
An inactivation switch enables rhythms in a Neurospora clock model
TLDR
A fairly simple model with just 3 non-linearities helps to elucidate clock dynamics revealing a mechanism of rhythms production and can be utilized to study entrainment and temperature compensation.
Rational design to control the trade-off between receptor affinity and cooperativity
TLDR
This paper shows how the additional binding energy provided by adding new binding sites can be rationally partitioned between improving the responsiveness still further or recovering some of the lost affinity, allowing the design of receptors with highly tailored affinity and cooperativity.
Structure-function studies of M4 muscarinic acetylcholine receptor allosteric modulation
TLDR
Alanine scanning mutagenesis was utilised in conjunction with radioligand assays to determine the role of specific amino acid residues on affinity or binding cooperativity, and M4 mAChR-mediated extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) 1/2 phosphorylation, as a measure of efficacy or functional modulation by LY2033298.
Toward an understanding of the sequence and structural basis of allosteric proteins.
A Pycellerator Tutorial.
TLDR
This tutorial presents a tutorial on using Pycellerator for biomolecular simulations, and demonstrates the implementation and analysis of progressively more complex models, starting from simple mass action through indexed cascades.
High-sensitivity assessment of phagocytosis by persistent association-based normalization
TLDR
This work identified a simple, measurable parameter – persistent prey-phagocyte association – to use for normalization and dose-response analysis, and finds it better in all cases, with increased robustness, sensitivity, and reproducibility.
A quantitative model of the bovine casein micelle: ion equilibria and calcium phosphate sequestration by individual caseins in bovine milk
TLDR
An improved model of the partition of caseins and salts in milk is described in which all the phosphorylated residues in competent caseins act together to bind to and sequester the nanoclusters.
High-Sensitivity Assessment of Phagocytosis by Persistent Association-Based Normalization.
TLDR
This study identified a simple, measurable parameter, persistent prey-phagocyte association, to use for normalization and dose-response analysis, and finds the persistent association-based normalization method to perform better, exhibiting increased robustness, sensitivity, and reproducibility.
Hospital Admission to a Window-Side Bed Does Not Prevent Delirium: A Retrospective Cohort Study of Older Medical Inpatients in General Wards
TLDR
Admission to a window-side bed did not prevent delirium development in older patients admitted to a general ward and the main outcome was “delirium with event” within 14 days after admission.
