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.
(Nat Neurosci, 2007-05)
Shared features in the pathobiology of babesiosis and malaria.
(Trends Parasitol, 2007-12)
The pathobiology of malaria has been extensively studied in humans but many questions remain, especially regarding fulminant disease associated with Plasmodium falciparum infection. Babesiosis, recognized since biblical ...
Plants as reef fish: fitting the functional form of seedling recruitment.
(Am Nat, 2007-08)
The life histories of many species depend first on dispersal to local sites and then on establishment. After dispersal, density-independent and density-dependent mortalities modify propagule supply, determining the number ...
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 ...
The CO/HO system reverses inhibition of mitochondrial biogenesis and prevents murine doxorubicin cardiomyopathy.
(J Clin Invest, 2007-12)
The clinical utility of anthracycline anticancer agents, especially doxorubicin, is limited by a progressive toxic cardiomyopathy linked to mitochondrial damage and cardiomyocyte apoptosis. Here we demonstrate that ...
Multiple, conserved cryptic recombination signals in VH gene segments: detection of cleavage products only in pro B cells.
(J Exp Med, 2007-12-24)
Receptor editing is believed to play the major role in purging newly formed B cell compartments of autoreactivity by the induction of secondary V(D)J rearrangements. In the process of immunoglobulin heavy (H) chain editing, ...
Measurement of intracellular strain on deformable substrates with texture correlation.
(J Biomech, 2007)
Mechanical stimuli are important factors that regulate cell proliferation, survival, metabolism and motility in a variety of cell types. The relationship between mechanical deformation of the extracellular matrix ...
