In order to get a detailed insight into the functional organization of the syncytium, we applied advanced analytical tools from the realm of complex network theory to uncover the functional connectivity pattern among cells composing the intact islet. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/progressive-glucose-stimulation-of-islet-beta-cells-reveals-a-transition-from-segregated-to-integrated-modular-functional-connectivity-patterns/ Thu, 03 Sep 2015 17:10:00 +0000
