    • A relationship between behavior, neurotrophin expression, and new neuron survival. 

      Alvarez-Borda, B; Jarvis, Erich David; Li, XC; Lim, DA; Nottebohm, F (Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2000-07-18)
      The high vocal center (HVC) controls song production in songbirds and sends a projection to the robust nucleus of the archistriatum (RA) of the descending vocal pathway. HVC receives new neurons in adulthood. Most of the ...
    • For whom the bird sings: context-dependent gene expression. 

      Grossman, Matthew R; Jarvis, Erich David; Nottebohm, F; Ramos, JA; Scharff, C (Neuron, 1998-10)
      Male zebra finches display two song behaviors: directed and undirected singing. The two differ little in the vocalizations produced but greatly in how song is delivered. "Directed" song is usually accompanied by a courtship ...
    • Motor-driven gene expression. 

      Jarvis, Erich David; Nottebohm, F (Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1997-04-15)
      There is increased neuronal firing in the high vocal center (a motor nucleus) and other song nuclei of canaries, Serinus canaria, and zebra finches, Taeniopygia guttata, whenever these songbirds sing or hear song. These ...
    • Rudimentary substrates for vocal learning in a suboscine. 

      Jarvis, Erich David; Liu, WC; Nottebohm, F; Wada, K (Nat Commun, 2013)
      Vocal learning has evolved in only a few groups of mammals and birds. The key neuroanatomical and behavioural links bridging vocal learners and non-learners are still unknown. Here we show that a non-vocal-learning suboscine, ...
    • Selective expression of insulin-like growth factor II in the songbird brain. 

      Chong, C; Grossman, Matthew R; Holzenberger, M; Jarvis, Erich David; Nottebohm, F; Scharff, C (J Neurosci, 1997-09-15)
      Neuronal replacement occurs in the forebrain of juvenile and adult songbirds. To address the molecular processes that govern this replacement, we cloned the zebra finch insulin-like growth factor II (IGF-II) cDNA, a factor ...
    • Site-specific retinoic acid production in the brain of adult songbirds. 

      Denisenko-Nehrbass, NI; Jarvis, Erich David; Mello, CV; Nottebohm, F; Scharff, C (Neuron, 2000-08)
      The song system of songbirds, a set of brain nuclei necessary for song learning and production, has distinctive morphological and functional properties. Utilizing differential display, we searched for molecular components ...
