  • Spiculogenesis and biomineralization in early sponge animals 

    Tang, Qing; Wan, Bin; Yuan, Xunlai; Muscente, A. D.; Xiao, Shuhai (Springer Nature, 2019-07-26)
    Most sponges have biomineralized spicules. Molecular clocks indicate sponge classes diverged in the Cryogenian, but the oldest spicules are Cambrian in age. Therefore, sponges either evolved spiculogenesis long after their ...

    Diseases related to impaired blood flow such as peripheral artery disease (PAD) impact nearly 10 million people in the United States alone, yet patients with clinical manifestations of PAD (e.g., claudication and limb ...
  • Inferring and validating mechanistic models of neural microcircuits based on spike-train data 

    Ladenbauer, Josef; McKenzie, Sam; English, Daniel Fine; Hagens, Olivier; Ostojic, Srdjan (Springer Nature, 2019-10-30)
    The interpretation of neuronal spike train recordings often relies on abstract statistical models that allow for principled parameter estimation and model selection but provide only limited insights into underlying ...
