A model of lateral inhibition and directional selectivity in the crayfish compound eye
This study models the network interactions of five classes of neurons in the crayfish retina which support lateral inhibition and directional selectivity. The models approximate pulse responses and responses to drifting ...
Statistical and biophysical modeling of binaural interaction in the lateral superior olive
The Lateral Superior Olive (LSO) is believed to be involved in encoding high frequency localization information based on interaural level difference (ILD) and interaural time difference (ITD) cues. Details of how this ...
A phase sensitivity based method for prediction of modes of behavior in quadrupedal locomotion
The objective of this study is development of prediction methods for characterizing the electrical behavior of ring type central pattern generators (CPGs). A mathematical model of the prototypical bursting neuron R15 from ...
Receptor-specific binding of von Willebrand factor to platelets in response to shear stress
Physical and biochemical forces convert platelets in human blood in vivo from the quiescent state as freely moving, discoid, singlets to aggregates adhering to subendothelial surfaces and secreting a wide variety of bioactive ...
