Learned birdsong and the neurobiology of human language.
(Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2004-06)
Vocal learning, the substrate for human language, is a rare trait found to date in only three distantly related groups of mammals (humans, bats, and cetaceans) and three distantly related groups of birds (parrots, hummingbirds, ...
Single Neurons and Primate Behavior
(Methods in Mind, 2009)
Social context-dependent singing-regulated dopamine.
(J Neurosci, 2006-08-30)
Like the mammalian striatum, the songbird striatum receives dense dopaminergic input from the midbrain ventral tegmental area-substantia nigra pars compacta complex. The songbird striatum also contains a unique vocal nucleus, ...
Liability issues for data monitoring committee members.
(Clin Trials, 2004)
In randomized clinical trials, a data monitoring committee (DMC) is often appointed to review interim data to determine whether there is early convincing evidence of intervention benefit, lack of benefit or harm to study ...
A corollary discharge for perceptual stability
Advances to Bayesian network inference for generating causal networks from observational biological data.
MOTIVATION: Network inference algorithms are powerful computational tools for identifying putative causal interactions among variables from observational data. Bayesian network inference algorithms hold particular promise ...
The DLK-1 kinase promotes mRNA stability and local translation in C. elegans synapses and axon regeneration.
Growth cone guidance and synaptic plasticity involve dynamic local changes in proteins at axons and dendrites. The Dual-Leucine zipper Kinase MAPKKK (DLK) has been previously implicated in synaptogenesis and axon outgrowth ...
Diesel exhaust particles activate the matrix-metalloproteinase-1 gene in human bronchial epithelia in a beta-arrestin-dependent manner via activation of RAS.
(Environ Health Perspect, 2009-03)
BACKGROUND: Diesel exhaust particles (DEPs) are globally relevant air pollutants that exert a detrimental human health impact. However, mechanisms of damage by DEP exposure to human respiratory health and human susceptibility ...
Reactions to discrimination, stigmatization, ostracism, and other forms of interpersonal rejection: a multimotive model.
(Psychol Rev, 2009-04)
This article describes a new model that provides a framework for understanding people's reactions to threats to social acceptance and belonging as they occur in the context of diverse phenomena such as rejection, discrimination, ...
A functional analysis of the spacer of V(D)J recombination signal sequences.
(PLoS Biol, 2003-10)
During lymphocyte development, V(D)J recombination assembles antigen receptor genes from component V, D, and J gene segments. These gene segments are flanked by a recombination signal sequence (RSS), which serves as the ...
