A nice news coverage of our recent publication in Current Biology by Eva Frederick in Science:
Our study on the mechanism of survival without water is on the cover of today’s Current Biology!
A new study on the role of Piezo2 in mechanosensory specialization of trigeminal neurons is out on the cover of Cell Reports!

A great commentary on Lydia and Marco’s recent paper in Current Biology is published in Journal of Experimental Biology:
Daniel Vahaba Hibernating squirrels tweak sodium channels to rest their brain. (pdf)
Our paper on TRPM8 in hibernating animals is published in Cell Reports and featured on the cover!

Our paper on Piezo2 and duckbill mechanosensitivity is featured on the cover of today’s issue of PNAS! Special thanks to Ryan Dunn for providing the photo.
Our latest duck story was covered in Science News – a very nice takeaway by Roni Dengler:
Our story on mechanosensitivity in duck neurons is on the front page of the Smithsonian magazine, Science Daily, Phys.org, Sciencecodex and more.We thank to Dan Mirin and Laurel Hamers for writing about our work.
