Corollary discharge circuits in the primate brain.
(Curr Opin Neurobiol, 2008-12)
Movements are necessary to engage the world, but every movement results in sensorimotor ambiguity. Self-movements cause changes to sensory inflow as well as changes in the positions of objects relative to motor effectors ...
A relationship between behavior, neurotrophin expression, and new neuron survival.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2000-07-18)
The high vocal center (HVC) controls song production in songbirds and sends a projection to the robust nucleus of the archistriatum (RA) of the descending vocal pathway. HVC receives new neurons in adulthood. Most of the ...
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, ...
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 ...
Brain circuits for the internal monitoring of movements.
(Annu Rev Neurosci, 2008)
Each movement we make activates our own sensory receptors, thus causing a problem for the brain: the spurious, movement-related sensations must be discriminated from the sensory inputs that really matter, those representing ...
Identifying corollary discharges for movement in the primate brain.
(Prog Brain Res, 2004)
The brain keeps track of the movements it makes so as to process sensory input accurately and coordinate complex movements gracefully. In this chapter we review the brain's strategies for keeping track of fast, saccadic ...
