Here are our highlights from September’s PLOS Computational Biology: Model-Based Reasoning in Humans Becomes Automatic with Training Automaticity develops with task familiarity. One possible explanation is that automaticity arises when performance of the task becomes
Here are our highlights from August’s PLOS Computational Biology The Role of Cell Volume in the Dynamics of Seizure, Spreading Depression, and Anoxic Depolarization Cell volume changes are ubiquitous in normal and pathological activity of
Here are some highlights from May’s PLOS Computational Biology Convex Clustering: An Attractive Alternative to Hierarchical Clustering The recently developed method of convex clustering preserves the visual appeal of hierarchical clustering while ameliorating its
Millions of people worldwide suffer from progressive degeneration of the eye’s photoreceptors (the light-sensing cells), leading ultimately to blindness. A recent therapeutic approach for restoring vision in blind retinas involves introducing light-sensing proteins into surviving retinal
In this bumper week for PLOS Biology, you can read about bat navigation, transmission of longevity, new neurons for old brains, how yeast anticipate change, a serious downside of illegal drug laws, and how to
In PLOS Biology this week you can read about the perception and self-regulation of pain, a computational model of operant learning and improving the computer-friendliness of phenotypic data. Two Parallel Pathways to Pain Understanding how
In PLOS Biology this week you can read about life without microbes, host-parasite coevolution, the temporal precision of distinguishing odours and how viruses package their genomes. Life in a World without Microbes According to
In PLOS Biology this week, you can read about neural activity in bird song, the utility of mathematical models in evolutionary biology, how diet can shape the genome and the robustness of protein interaction networks.
Predicting diseases with Wikipedia, how the brain modifies memories, and hypersynchrony: the PLOS Comp Biol November Issue
Here are our highlights from November’s PLOS Computational Biology. Predicting Diseases with Wikipedia Effective and timely disease surveillance is a critical component of prevention and mitigation strategies that can save lives. Nicholas Generous and colleagues
In PLOS Biology this week, you can read about the sequence of the centipede genome, alternative publication metrics, how we pay attention to our sense of touch, and the information bandwidth of human neurons.
