Hyperpolarization-activated currents and subthreshold resonance in granule cells of the olfactory bulb
(Society for Neuroscience, 2016-10-27)
An important contribution to neural circuit oscillatory dynamics is the ongoing activation and inactivation of hyperpolarization-activated currents (Ih). Network synchrony dynamics play an important role in the initial ...
Auditory evoked potential audiometry in fish
A recent survey lists more than 100 papers utilizing the auditory evoked potential (AEP) recording technique for studying hearing in fishes. More than 95 % of these AEP-studies were published after Kenyon et al. introduced ...
In vivo functional properties of juxtaglomerular neurons in the mouse olfactory bulb
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2013-02-21)
Juxtaglomerular neurons represent one of the largest cellular populations in the mammalian olfactory bulb yet their role for signal processing remains unclear. We used two-photon imaging and electrophysiological recordings ...
Minimum entropy decomposition : unsupervised oligotyping for sensitive partitioning of high-throughput marker gene sequences
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-10-17)
Molecular microbial ecology investigations often employ large marker gene datasets, for example, ribosomal RNAs, to represent the occurrence of single-cell genomes in microbial communities. Massively parallel DNA sequencing ...
Intentional versus unintentional nitrogen use in the United States : trends, efficiency and implications
Human actions have both intentionally and unintentionally altered the global economy of nitrogen (N), with both positive and negative consequences for human health and welfare, the environment and climate change. Here we ...
Correction to “Importance of carbon-nitrogen interactions and ozone on ecosystem hydrology during the 21st century”
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-08-22)
Processing arctic eddy-flux data using a simple carbon-exchange model embedded in the ensemble Kalman filter
(Ecological Society of America, 2010-07)
Continuous time-series estimates of net ecosystem carbon exchange (NEE) are routinely made using eddy covariance techniques. Identifying and compensating for errors in the NEE time series can be automated using a signal ...
Burn severity influences postfire CO2 exchange in Arctic tundra
(Ecological Society of America, 2011-03)
Burned landscapes present several challenges to quantifying landscape carbon balance. Fire scars are composed of a mosaic of patches that differ in burn severity, which may influence postfire carbon budgets through damage ...
Modeling coupled biogeochemical cycles
(Ecological Society of America, 2011-02)
Organisms require about 30 essential elements to sustain life. The cycles of these elements are coupled to one another through the specific physiological requirements of the organisms. Here, I contrast several approaches ...
Suction-based propulsion as a basis for efficient animal swimming
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-11-03)
A central and long-standing tenet in the conceptualization of animal swimming is the idea that propulsive thrust is generated by pushing the surrounding water rearward. Inherent in this perspective is the assumption that ...
