A framework for integrating the songbird brain.
(J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol, 2002-12)
Biological systems by default involve complex components with complex relationships. To decipher how biological systems work, we assume that one needs to integrate information over multiple levels of complexity. The songbird ...
Activation in mesolimbic and visuospatial neural circuits elicited by smoking cues: evidence from functional magnetic resonance imaging.
(Am J Psychiatry, 2002-06)
OBJECTIVE: The authors sought to increase understanding of the brain mechanisms involved in cigarette addiction by identifying neural substrates modulated by visual smoking cues in nicotine-deprived smokers. METHOD: Event-related ...
Evaluating functional network inference using simulations of complex biological systems.
MOTIVATION: Although many network inference algorithms have been presented in the bioinformatics literature, no suitable approach has been formulated for evaluating their effectiveness at recovering models of complex biological ...
Tissue-specific genetic control of splicing: implications for the study of complex traits.
(PLoS Biol, 2008-12-23)
Numerous genome-wide screens for polymorphisms that influence gene expression have provided key insights into the genetic control of transcription. Despite this work, the relevance of specific polymorphisms to in vivo expression ...
BOLD signal compartmentalization based on the apparent diffusion coefficient.
(Magn Reson Imaging, 2002-09)
Functional MRI (fMRI) can detect blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) hemodynamic responses secondary to neuronal activity. The most commonly used method for detecting fMRI signals is the gradient-echo echo-planar imaging ...
