Computational models of the human visual cortex: on individual differences and ecologically valid input statistics Perception relies on cortical processes in response to sensory stimuli. Visual input entering the eyes ascends a cascade of processing steps from the retina to high-level regions of the cortex. Vision science investigates ...
The Life of Prion: an investigation into the physiological role of a prion-like protein in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans For centuries, the threat of prion disease has plagued populations – whether it be in the form of scrapie ravaging through the sheep populations of Spain in the eighteenth century, fatal familial insomnia afflicting families ...
(2020-07-30)A crucial aspect of cellular physiology is the ability of a single cell to remain autonomous and concentrate reagents to improve efficiency. Semi-permeable membranes facilitate autonomy via an outer barrier (plasma membrane) ...
