Composition and topographic organization of signals sent from the frontal eye field to the superior colliculus.
(J Neurophysiol, 2000-04)
The frontal eye field (FEF) and superior colliculus (SC) contribute to saccadic eye movement generation, and much of the FEF's oculomotor influence may be mediated through the SC. The present study examined the composition ...
Eye fields in the frontal lobes of primates.
(Brain Res Brain Res Rev, 2000-04)
Two eye fields have been identified in the frontal lobes of primates: one is situated dorsomedially within the frontal cortex and will be referred to as the eye field within the dorsomedial frontal cortex (DMFC); the other ...
A relationship between behavior, neurotrophin expression, and new neuron survival.
(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 ...
The Superior Colliculus and the Cognitive Control of Movement
(The New Cognitive Neurosciences, 2000)
Multiple endocytic pathways of G protein-coupled receptors delineated by GIT1 sensitivity.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2000-02-01)
Recently, we identified a GTPase-activating protein for the ADP ribosylation factor family of small GTP-binding proteins that we call GIT1. This protein initially was identified as an interacting partner for the G protein-coupled ...
Molecular mapping of brain areas involved in parrot vocal communication.
(J Comp Neurol, 2000-03-27)
Auditory and vocal regulation of gene expression occurs in separate discrete regions of the songbird brain. Here we demonstrate that regulated gene expression also occurs during vocal communication in a parrot, belonging ...
Behaviourally driven gene expression reveals song nuclei in hummingbird brain.
Hummingbirds have developed a wealth of intriguing features, such as backwards flight, ultraviolet vision, extremely high metabolic rates, nocturnal hibernation, high brain-to-body size ratio and a remarkable species-specific ...
Site-specific retinoic acid production in the brain of adult songbirds.
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 ...
A membrane-associated progesterone-binding protein, 25-Dx, is regulated by progesterone in brain regions involved in female reproductive behaviors.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2000-11-07)
The ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH) plays a central role in the regulation of the female reproductive behavior lordosis, a behavior dependent upon the sequential activation of receptors for the ovarian steroid hormones estradiol ...
Multielectrode evidence for spreading activity across the superior colliculus movement map.
(J Neurophysiol, 2000-07)
The monkey superior colliculus (SC) has maps for both visual input and movement output in the superficial and intermediate layers, respectively, and activity on these maps is generally related to visual stimuli only in one ...
