Anomalous transport in flows is often invoked in discussion of anomalous transport phenomena as described by continuous-time random walk (CTRW) or Levy walk (LW) schemes. The first model describes the particles' transport in eddy lattices, and the model of a Levy walk interrupted by rests describes the transport in flows which consist of eddies and jets. The models adequately describe the...
142. Aging transient superdiffusive dynamics in in vivo neuronal mRNP transport: a Levy walk description
Jae Hyung Jeon (Department of Physics, Pohang University of Science and Technology(POSTECH))
Localization of messenger ribonucleoproteins (mRNPs) plays an essential role in the regulation of gene expression required for long-term memory formation and neuronal development. Knowledge concerning the nature of neuronal mRNP transport is thus crucial for understanding how mRNPs are delivered to their target synapses. In this talk, we show experimental and theoretical evidence that the...

In 1905 Einstein formulated the laws of diffusion, and in 1908 Perrin published his Nobel-prize winning studies determining Avogadro's number from diffusion measurements. With similar, more refined techniques the diffusion behaviour in complex systems such as the motion of tracer particles in living biological cells is nowadays measured with high precision. Often the diffusion turns out...
