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 - May 2016

Journal of Neurophysiology Categorically distinct types of receptive fields in early visual cortex American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology Vascular smooth muscle-specific deletion of the leptin receptor attenuates leptin-induced vascular relaxation
Journal of Applied Physiology Motor unit number and transmission stability in octogenarian world class athletes: can age-related deficits be outrun? American Journal of Physiology - Endocrinology and Metabolism Skeletal inflammation and attenuation of Wnt signaling, Wnt ligand expression, and bone formation in atherosclerotic ApoE-null mice
American Journal of Physiology - Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology VEGF-sdf1 recruitment of CXCR7+ bone marrow progenitors of liver sinusoidal endothelial cells promotes rat liver regeneration Physiological Genomics Functional phosphorylation sites in cardiac myofilament proteins are evolutionarily conserved in skeletal myofilament proteins
American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology Relaxin deficiency attenuates pregnancy-induced adaptation of the mesenteric artery to angiotensin II in mice American Journal of Physiology - Renal Physiology Mild systemic thermal therapy ameliorates renal dysfunction in a rodent model of chronic kidney disease
Journal of Neurophysiology Effects of aging on the response of single neurons to amplitude modulated noise in primary auditory cortex of Rhesus macaque  

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
