Songbirds and the revised avian brain nomenclature.
(Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2004-06)
It has become increasingly clear that the standard nomenclature for many telencephalic and related brainstem structures of the avian brain is based on flawed once-held assumptions of homology to mammalian brain structures, ...
Molecular mapping of brain areas involved in parrot vocal communication.
(J Comp Neurol, 2000-03-27)
Auditory and vocal regulation of gene expression occurs in separate discrete regions of the songbird brain. Here we demonstrate that regulated gene expression also occurs during vocal communication in a parrot, belonging ...
Avian brains and a new understanding of vertebrate brain evolution.
(Nat Rev Neurosci, 2005-02)
We believe that names have a powerful influence on the experiments we do and the way in which we think. For this reason, and in the light of new evidence about the function and evolution of the vertebrate brain, an international ...
Behaviourally driven gene expression reveals song nuclei in hummingbird brain.
Hummingbirds have developed a wealth of intriguing features, such as backwards flight, ultraviolet vision, extremely high metabolic rates, nocturnal hibernation, high brain-to-body size ratio and a remarkable species-specific ...
Site-specific retinoic acid production in the brain of adult songbirds.
The song system of songbirds, a set of brain nuclei necessary for song learning and production, has distinctive morphological and functional properties. Utilizing differential display, we searched for molecular components ...
Induction of hippocampal long-term potentiation during waking leads to increased extrahippocampal zif-268 expression during ensuing rapid-eye-movement sleep.
(J Neurosci, 2002-12-15)
Rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep plays a key role in the consolidation of memories acquired during waking (WK). The search for mechanisms underlying that role has revealed significant correlations in the patterns of neuronal ...
