Homeostasis: How Neurons Achieve Temperature Invariance

Curr Biol. 2016 Nov 7;26(21):R1141-R1143. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2016.09.063.


Temperature influences physiological processes and can corrupt nervous system function. A modelling study shows how regulation of ion channel expression can establish an acute temperature invariance of neuronal responses despite temperature-dependent and variable ionic conductances.
