    • Bet-hedging, seasons and the evolution of behavioral diversity in Drosophila 

      Kain, Jamey; Zhang, Sarah; Klein, Mason Joseph; Samuel, Aravinthan DT; de Bivort, Benjamin Lovegren (2015)
      Organisms use various strategies to cope with fluctuating environmental conditions. In diversified bet-hedging, a single genotype exhibits phenotypic heterogeneity with the expectation that some individuals will survive ...
    • Bidirectional thermotaxis in Caenorhabditis elegans is mediated by distinct sensorimotor strategies driven by the AFD thermosensory neurons 

      Luo, Linjiao; Cook, N.; Venkatachalam, Vivek; Martinez-Velazquez, L. A.; Zhang, Xiaosong; Calvo, A. C.; Hawk, J.; Macinnis, Bronwyn Lee; Frank, Michelle Murrah; Ng, J. H. R.; Klein, Mason Joseph; Gershow, M; Hammarlund, M.; Goodman, M. B.; Colon-Ramos, D. A.; Zhang, Y.; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2014)
      The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans navigates toward a preferred temperature setpoint (Ts) determined by long-term temperature exposure. During thermotaxis, the worm migrates down temperature gradients at temperatures above ...
    • Electromagnetically induced transparency in paraffin-coated vapor cells 

      Klein, Mason Joseph; Hohensee; Phillips, David F.; Walsworth, Ronald Lee (American Physical Society (APS), 2011)
      Antirelaxation coatings in atomic vapor cells allow ground-state coherent spin states to survive many collisions with the cell walls. This reduction in the ground-state decoherence rate gives rise to ultranarrow-bandwidth ...
    • Pan-neuronal imaging in roaming Caenorhabditis elegans 

      Venkatachalam, Vivek; Ji, Ni; Wang, Xian-Ling; Clark, Christopher Luce; Mitchell, James Kameron; Klein, Mason Joseph; Tabone, Christopher; Florman, Jeremy; Ji, Hongfei; Greenwood, Joel S.f.; Chisholm, Andrew; Srinivasan, Jagan; Alkema, Mark; Zhen, Mei; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2015)
      We present an imaging system for pan-neuronal recording in crawling Caenorhabditis elegans. A spinning disk confocal microscope, modified for automated tracking of the C. elegans head ganglia, simultaneously records the ...
    • Sensorimotor structure of Drosophila larva phototaxis 

      Kane, E. A.; Gershow, M; Afonso, Bruno; Larderet, I.; Klein, Mason Joseph; Carter, A. R.; de Bivort, Benjamin Lovegren; Sprecher, S. G.; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2013)
      The avoidance of light by fly larvae is a classic paradigm for sensorimotor behavior. Here, we use behavioral assays and video microscopy to quantify the sensorimotor structure of phototaxis using the Drosophila larva. ...
    • Sensory determinants of behavioral dynamics in Drosophila thermotaxis 

      Klein, Mason Joseph; Afonso, Bruno; Vonner, Ashley James; Hernandez-Nunez, Luis; Berck, Matthew E; Tabone, Christopher; Kane, Elizabeth Anne; Pieribone, Vincent A.; Nitabach, Michael N.; Cardona, Albert; Zlatic, Marta; Sprecher, Simon G.; Gershow, Marc; Garrity, Paul A.; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2014)
      Complex animal behaviors are built from dynamical relationships between sensory inputs, neuronal activity, and motor outputs in patterns with strategic value. Connecting these patterns illuminates how nervous systems compute ...
    • Slow light in paraffin-coated Rb vapour cells 

      Klein, Mason Joseph; Novikova, I.; Phillips, David F.; Walsworth, Ronald Lee (Informa UK Limited, 2006)
      Preliminary results from an experimental study of slow light in anti-relaxation- coated Rb vapour cells are presented, and the construction and testing of such cells are described. The slow ground state decoherence rate ...
    • Variability in thermal and phototactic preferences in Drosophila may reflect an adaptive bet‐hedging strategy 

      Kain, Jamey S.; Zhang, Sarah; Akhund‐Zade, Jamilla; Samuel, Aravinthan D. T.; Klein, Mason; de Bivort, Benjamin L. (John Wiley and Sons Inc., 2015)
      Organisms use various strategies to cope with fluctuating environmental conditions. In diversified bet‐hedging, a single genotype exhibits phenotypic heterogeneity with the expectation that some individuals will survive ...
