Brain Biophysics: Check out

the latest collection of articles

from the

Biophysical Journal

This collection of articles, curated by



, highlights research articles in the area

of Brain Biophysics. The 12 articles show the

use of diverse techniques such as computational,

structural, spectroscopic and/or electrophysiology

in investigating components of the neural systems

involved in physiological and pathophysiological

conditions. They address a wide range of research

from gating at the channel level, exocytosis, and

long-term potentiation, to conformational states

of proteins involved in diseases such as Alzheim-

er’s. Visit
