In news:

Using the principle of homeostasis, we derive a learning rule for a specific recurrent neural network structure, the so-called Self-Adjusting Ring Module (SARM).
These processes ultimately shape the architecture of tissues and play an important role in coordinating cell signaling, gene expression and behavior, and they are essential for wound healing and tissue homeostasis in adult organisms.
And how do cells in a population achieve size homeostasis.

In science:

The Quantum Homeostasis Hypothesis for the functionality of REM sleep is somewhat complementary to the Synaptic Homeostasis Hypothesis for non-REM stages, which states that during sleep, the synapses weaken.
Quantum randomness can be controlled by free will -a consequence of the before-before experiment
In any case, the Quantum Homeostasis Hypothesis accounts well for: (a) the relevant fact that we experience ourselves as mental free beings capable of producing purposefully brain outcomes as speaking and acting, and (b) the available observations on REM sleep .

We postulate that homeostasis of the quantum Hall system is captured by the latter equation.
Modeling a quantum Hall system via elliptic equations
The energy homeostasis can appear as a task-unspecific criterion, which defines such self-development.
Collective Energy Foraging of Robot Swarms and Robot Organisms
Since energetic efficiency, by analogy to natural survival, possess openended features, the collective energy homeostasis can be considered as a candidate underlying a design of open-ended self-developmental systems .
