- The flexible clock: predictive and reactive homeostasis, energy balance and the circadian regulation of sleep–wake timing
Summary: The daily temporal niche of animals is adaptive and depends on environmental and physiological context.
- Mode-dependent control of human walking and running as revealed by split-belt locomotor adaptation
Summary: Walking and running are not simply dependent on velocity, but are controlled by the CNS as two completely distinct forms of locomotion in humans.
- The effects of temperature on aerobic metabolism: towards a mechanistic understanding of the responses of ectotherms to a changing environment
Summary: A view of why current theories provide an inadequate mechanistic account of the effects of temperature on aerobic metabolic processes across levels of organization from individual proteins to intact animals.
- The emerging role of RNA editing in plasticity
Summary: RNA editing can be used by organisms to regulate their physiological response to the environment. Recent studies show that it is used more frequently than previously suspected.
- Bat flight: aerodynamics, kinematics and flight morphology
Summary: Hedenström and Johansson review the way in which the bat's wing structure equips it for efficient and manoeuvrable flight.
