Neural systems for vocal learning in birds and humans: a synopsis.
(J Ornithol, 2007-12-01)
I present here a synopsis on a hypothesis that I derived on the similarities and differences of vocal learning systems in vocal learning birds for learned song and in humans for spoken language. This hypothesis states that ...
Microcircuits for attention.
Researchers who study the neuronal basis of cognition face a paradox. If they extract the brain, its cognitive functions cannot be assessed. On the other hand, the brain's microcircuits are difficult to study in the intact ...
The feeling of looking.

The pallial basal ganglia pathway modulates the behaviorally driven gene expression of the motor pathway
(EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF NEUROSCIENCE, 2007-04)
The pallial basal ganglia pathway modulates the behaviorally driven gene expression of the motor pathway.
(Eur J Neurosci, 2007-04)
The discrete neural network for songbird vocal communication provides an effective system to study neural mechanisms of learned motor behaviors in vertebrates. This system consists of two pathways--a vocal motor pathway ...
Role of the midbrain dopaminergic system in modulation of vocal brain activation by social context.
(Eur J Neurosci, 2007-06)
In a well-studied model of social behaviour, male zebra finches sing directed song to court females and undirected song, used possibly for practice or advertisement. Although the two song types are similar, the level of ...
Lateralized activation of Cluster N in the brains of migratory songbirds.
(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 ...
