    • Cold acclimation of chill coma mechanisms in the locust CNS 

      Srithiphaphirom, Phinyaphat
      Temperature has profound effects on the neural function and behaviour of insects. When exposed to low temperature, migratory locusts (Locusta migratoria) enter chill coma (neuromuscular paralysis) and can resume normal ...
    • Modulation of Axonal Transmission by Metabolic Stress 

      Cross, Kevin (2015-10-01)
      Electrical signaling by neural tissue is responsible for ~20% of the basal metabolic rate. This high-energy consumption predisposes neural tissue to metabolic stress that can compromise signaling and cause irreversible ...
