Differential expression of glutamate receptors in avian neural pathways for learned vocalization.
(J Comp Neurol, 2004-08-09)
Learned vocalization, the substrate for human language, is a rare trait. It is found in three distantly related groups of birds-parrots, hummingbirds, and songbirds. These three groups contain cerebral vocal nuclei for learned ...
FoxP2 expression in avian vocal learners and non-learners.
(J Neurosci, 2004-03-31)
Most vertebrates communicate acoustically, but few, among them humans, dolphins and whales, bats, and three orders of birds, learn this trait. FOXP2 is the first gene linked to human speech and has been the target of positive ...
Functional parcellation of attentional control regions of the brain.
(J Cogn Neurosci, 2004-01)
Recently, a number of investigators have examined the neural loci of psychological processes enabling the control of visual spatial attention using cued-attention paradigms in combination with event-related functional magnetic ...
