Emergence of reconfigurable wires and spinners via dynamic self-assembly

By Gasper Kokot Dissipative colloidal materials use energy to generate and maintain structural complexity. The energy injection rate, and properties of the environment are important control parameters that influence the outcome of dynamic self-assembly. Here we demonstrate that dispersions of magnetic microparticles confined at the air-liquid interface, and energized by a uniaxial Read Full Article…

The modulation of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors on the neuronal network oscillations in rat hippocampal CA3 area

By Yang Wang γ oscillations are associated with higher brain functions such as memory, perception and consciousness. Disruption of γ oscillations occur in various neuro-psychological disorders such as schizophrenia. Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR) are highly expressed in the hippocampus, however, little is known about the role on hippocampal persistent γ oscillation. This Read Full Article…

The effect of music performance on the transcriptome of professional musicians

By Chakravarthi Kanduri Music performance by professional musicians involves a wide-spectrum of cognitive and multi-sensory motor skills, whose biological basis is unknown. Several neuroscientific studies have demonstrated that the brains of professional musicians and non-musicians differ structurally and functionally and that musical training enhances cognition. However, the molecules and molecular mechanisms involved Read Full Article…

A data-driven mathematical model of multi-drug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii transmission in an intensive care unit

By Xia Wang Major challenges remain when attempting to quantify and evaluate the impacts of contaminated environments and heterogeneity in the cohorting of health care workers (HCWs) on hospital infections. Data on the detection rate of multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (MRAB) in a Chinese intensive care unit (ICU) were obtained to accurately evaluate Read Full Article…
