Role of noise in neurons

...this paper. Using detailed models of rodent and squid axons and stochastic simulations, the authors performed experiments, now published in PLoS Computational Biology, which took several months to simulate a few milliseconds of real time in the brain. They show how conduction along such thin axons is af...

Squid-inspired design could mean better handling of underwater vehicles

...rmation of vortex rings, much like those formed by squid and jellyfish to move themselves underwater. Vortex rings are formed when a burst of fluid shoots out of an opening, moving in one direction and spreading out as it curls back. The researcher's nature-inspired vortex generators could be used in ...
