welcome to APSselect

APSselect is a collection of the very best original research papers published by the American Physiological Society. Each month, the most outstanding recently published papers from our ten research journals are selected and made available through this multi-journal website. Selections from previous months may be viewed on the archive page.

Selections - October 2017

Journal of Neurophysiology Altered tactile sensitivity in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology The role of Ca2+-activated Cl- current in tone generation in the rabbit corpus cavernosum
American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology Obesity-induced vascular inflammation involves elevated arginase activity Journal of Applied Physiology Imaging IGF-I uptake in growth plate cartilage using in vivo multiphoton microscopy
American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology In vitro contraction protects against palmitate-induced insulin resistance in C2C12 myotubes American Journal of Physiology - Endocrinology and Metabolism A novel D2O tracer method to quantify RNA turnover as a biomarker of de novo ribosomal biogenesis, in vitro, in animal models, and in human skeletal muscle
Journal of Neurophysiology Parkinsonism and Vigilance: Alteration in neural oscillatory activity and phase-amplitude coupling in the basal ganglia and motor cortex Physiological Genomics Circular RNAs in Rat Models of Cardiovascular and Renal Diseases
American Journal of Physiology - Heart and Circulatory Physiology The effect of ovariectomy on intracellular calcium (Ca2+) regulation in guinea pig cardiomyocytes

What is APSselect?

The overarching goal of APSselect is to shine a bright light on the outstanding scientific discoveries published by our Society each month. APSselect endeavors to be a timely, convenient, and concise “one-stop shopping” mechanism to broadly transmit our most exceptional work. APSselect aims to serve as a virtual “front porch” of the American Physiological Society’s scholarly home. In doing so, APSselect serves and enlivens all 11,000+ APS members. APSselect is also an ideal mechanism to enable a broader mission: to promote excellence of the physiological discipline to biomedical researchers in other fields. . . . read more
