NJIT Professor's Work Published in PLOS Computational Biology

Casey Diekman, assistant professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, recently had his paper “Causes and Consequences of Hyperexcitation in Central Clock Neurons” published in PLOS Computational Biology, an official journal of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) which features works of exceptional significance.  In the study, Diekman uses mathematical modeling to understand how the brain clock performs its timekeeping function.  Diekman adds, “This study suggests that the electrical activity of clock neurons may play a more important role in rhythm generation than previously thought.”
