Analysis of the mouse transcriptome for genes involved in the function of the nervous system.
(Genome Res, 2003-06)
We analyzed the mouse Representative Transcript and Protein Set for molecules involved in brain function. We found full-length cDNAs of many known brain genes and discovered new members of known brain gene families, including ...
Influence of network topology and data collection on network inference.
(Pac Symp Biocomput, 2003)
We recently developed an approach for testing the accuracy of network inference algorithms by applying them to biologically realistic simulations with known network topology. Here, we seek to determine the degree to which ...
The role of the thalamus in motor control.
(Curr Opin Neurobiol, 2003-12)
Two characteristics of the thalamus--its apparently simple relay function and its daunting multinuclear structure--have been customarily viewed as good reasons to study something else. Yet, now that many other brain regions ...
Faces evoke spatially differentiated patterns of BOLD activation and deactivation.
Using fMRI techniques sensitive to blood oxygen-level dependent (BOLD) contrast, we measured brain activity in participants (n=8) as they viewed images of faces presented periodically within a continuously changing montage ...
The Dialogue Between Cerebral Cortex and Superior Colliculus: Implications for Saccadic Target Selection and Corollary Discharge
(The Visual Neurosciences, 2003)
Does higher hospital cost imply higher quality of care?
(Review of Economics and Statistics, 2003-02-01)
This study investigates whether higher input use per stay in the hospital (treatment intensity) and longer length of stay improve outcomes of care. We allow for endogeneity of intensity and length of stay by estimating a ...
The frontal eye field sends predictively remapped visual signals to the superior colliculus
(Journal of Vision, 2003-12-01)
We perceive a stable visual world even though saccades often move our retinas. One way the brain may achieve a stable visual percept is through predictive remapping of visual receptive fields: just before a saccade, the ...
Enhanced rewarding properties of morphine, but not cocaine, in beta(arrestin)-2 knock-out mice.
(J Neurosci, 2003-11-12)
The reinforcing and psychomotor effects of morphine involve opiate stimulation of the dopaminergic system via activation of mu-opioid receptors (muOR). Both mu-opioid and dopamine receptors are members of the G-protein-coupled ...
Psychostimulant dependence in a community sample.
(Substance use & misuse, 2003-01)
OBJECTIVE:To examine the prevalence of psychostimulant dependence and the characteristics associated with nonmedical users' development of dependence. METHODS:The study sample was drawn from the 1995 to 1998 National Household ...
The relationship between employment and substance use among students aged 12 to 17.
(The Journal of adolescent health : official publication of the Society for Adolescent Medicine, 2003-01)
PURPOSE:To examine the association between employment status and substance use among students aged 12 to 17 years. METHODS:Secondary analysis of data from the 1995 and 1996 National Household Surveys on Drug Abuse was conducted. ...
