TBME, Featured ArticlesDistortion Distribution of Neural Spike Train Sequence Matching with Optogenetics
Optogenetics, named “Breakthrough of the Decade” by Science Magazine, gives scientists the ability to directly control individual neurons with pulses of light. The technique involves genetic modification of neurons, causing them to express light-sensitive proteins called opsins. When exposed to... Read more

TNB, Featured ArticlesCommunication in Plants: Comparison of Multiple Action Potential and Mechanosensitive Signals With Experiments
Both action potentials and mechanosensitive signalling are an important communication mechanisms in plants. Considering an information-theoretic framework, this paper explores the effective range of multiple action potentials for a long chain of cells (i.e., up to 100) in different configurations,...
