    • Functional evolution of mammalian odorant receptors. 

      Adipietro, KA; Mainland, JD; Matsunami, H (PLoS Genet, 2012)
      The mammalian odorant receptor (OR) repertoire is an attractive model to study evolution, because ORs have been subjected to rapid evolution between species, presumably caused by changes of the olfactory system to adapt ...
    • Mechanisms of specificity in neuronal activity-regulated gene transcription. 

      Lyons, MR; West, AE (Prog Neurobiol, 2011-08)
      The brain is a highly adaptable organ that is capable of converting sensory information into changes in neuronal function. This plasticity allows behavior to be accommodated to the environment, providing an important evolutionary ...
