    PURPOSE: Functioning is a necessary diagnostic criterion for depression, and thus routinely assessed in depressive patients. While it is highly informative of disorder severity, its change has not been tested for prognostic ...
  • García Ojalvo, Jordi (Nature Research, 2019)
    A large-scale imaging study has tracked thousands of bacteria living in three-dimensional biofilms. This technical tour de force reveals the importance of mechanical interactions between cells for building local and global ...
  • Lee, Dong-yeon D.; Galera Laporta, Letícia, 1985-; Bialecka-Fornal, Maja; Moon, Eun Chae; Shen, Zhouxin; Briggs, Steven P.; García Ojalvo, Jordi; Süel, Gürol M. (Elsevier, 2019)
    Bacteria exhibit cell-to-cell variability in their resilience to stress, for example, following antibiotic exposure. Higher resilience is typically ascribed to "dormant" non-growing cellular states. Here, by measuring ...
