    • For whom the bird sings: context-dependent gene expression. 

      Jarvis, ED; Scharff, C; Grossman, MR; Ramos, JA; Nottebohm, F (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 ...
    • Selective expression of insulin-like growth factor II in the songbird brain. 

      Holzenberger, M; Jarvis, ED; Chong, C; Grossman, M; 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, E; Scharff, C; Nottebohm, F; Mello, CV (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 ...
