    • Global view of the functional molecular organization of the avian cerebrum: mirror images and functional columns. 

      Jarvis, Erich D; Yu, Jing; Rivas, Miriam V; Horita, Haruhito; Feenders, Gesa; Whitney, Osceola; Jarvis, Syrus C; ... (19 authors) (J Comp Neurol, 2013-11)
      Based on quantitative cluster analyses of 52 constitutively expressed or behaviorally regulated genes in 23 brain regions, we present a global view of telencephalic organization of birds. The patterns of constitutively expressed ...
    • Lateralized activation of Cluster N in the brains of migratory songbirds. 

      Liedvogel, Miriam; Feenders, Gesa; Wada, Kazuhiro; Troje, Nikolaus F; Jarvis, Erich D; Mouritsen, Henrik (Eur J Neurosci, 2007-02)
      Cluster N is a cluster of forebrain regions found in night-migratory songbirds that shows high activation of activity-dependent gene expression during night-time vision. We have suggested that Cluster N may function as a ...
    • Molecular mapping of movement-associated areas in the avian brain: a motor theory for vocal learning origin. 

      Feenders, Gesa; Liedvogel, Miriam; Rivas, Miriam; Zapka, Manuela; Horita, Haruhito; Hara, Erina; Wada, Kazuhiro; ... (9 authors) (PLoS One, 2008-03-12)
      Vocal learning is a critical behavioral substrate for spoken human language. It is a rare trait found in three distantly related groups of birds-songbirds, hummingbirds, and parrots. These avian groups have remarkably similar ...
    • Night-time neuronal activation of Cluster N in a day- and night-migrating songbird. 

      Zapka, Manuela; Heyers, Dominik; Liedvogel, Miriam; Jarvis, Erich D; Mouritsen, Henrik (Eur J Neurosci, 2010-08)
      Magnetic compass orientation in a night-migratory songbird requires that Cluster N, a cluster of forebrain regions, is functional. Cluster N, which receives input from the eyes via the thalamofugal pathway, shows high neuronal ...
    • Night-vision brain area in migratory songbirds. 

      Mouritsen, Henrik; Feenders, Gesa; Liedvogel, Miriam; Wada, Kazuhiro; Jarvis, Erich D (Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2005-06-07)
      Twice each year, millions of night-migratory songbirds migrate thousands of kilometers. To find their way, they must process and integrate spatiotemporal information from a variety of cues including the Earth's magnetic ...
