Neuroscience Faculty Article Featured by Journal of Neurophysiology

Terminal arbors of 4 afferents used in the simulations. Boutons are shown in red, the axon initial segment (AIS) in green, and myelin in blue. Clockwise from top left: lateral extrastriolar afferent (LES), afferent from the striola (zone 2), juxtastriolar afferent, and medial extrastriolar afferent (MES). The myelinated axons are truncated. As modeled, membrane area of the peripheral tree and average axon diameter are as follows: LES, 1,696 μm2 and 1.22 μm; striola, 1,786 μm2 and 1.85 μm; juxtastriolar, 1,157 μm2 and 1.7 μm; and MES, 502 μm2 and 1.23 μm. Scale bars, 10 μm. Arrows indicate location of the AIS (green) at the junction of the axon (black) and myelin (blue) segments.

The Journal of Neurophysiology gave a Facebook shout out to an article by Dr. William R. Holmes, Professor of Biological Sciences, and co-authors from the Biological Sciences neuroscience program. “Using models of utricular bouton afferents, Ohio University researchers examined the role of afferent-hair cell connectivity in determining spike train regularity,” […]
