    During spatial exploration, hippocampal neurons show a sequential firing pattern in which individual neurons fire specifically at particular locations along the animal's trajectory (place cells). According to the dominant model of hippocampal cell assembly activity, place cell firing order is...

    Purpose: MUC1 mucin is a component of glycocalyx in haman endometriam and may play an important role in generation of "receptive window" at embryo implantation. Considering that MUC1 expression in haman placenta is changed during pregnancy, and that MUC1 structure and function are not completely...

    For a long time, lysosomes were considered merely to be cellular 'incinerators' involved in the degradation and recycling of cellular waste. However, now there is compelling evidence indicating that lysosomes have a much broader function and that they are involved in fundamental processes such...

    Recent experimental observations suggest that cells can show relatively precise and reliable responses to external signals even though substantial noise is inevitably involved in the signals. An intriguing question is the way how cells can manage to do it. One possible way to realize such...

    We identify robust statistical patterns in the frequency and severity of violent attacks by terrorist organizations as they grow and age. Using group-level static and dynamic analyses of terrorist events worldwide from 1968-2008 and a simulation model of organizational dynamics, we show that the...

    A subset of retinal ganglion cells has recently been discovered to be intrinsically photosensitive, with melanopsin as the pigment. These cells project primarily to brain centres for non-image-forming visual functions such as the pupillary light reflex and circadian photoentrainment. How well...

    The article provides information on topics related to noises in cells. It has been noted that the noise in cells can be drawn back to the genetic information that each cell in the body only carries one or two copies of each gene. In addition, the DNA in which is constantly shifting in both shape...
