Assessing visual requirements for social context-dependent activation of the songbird song system.
(Proc Biol Sci, 2009-01-22)
Social context has been shown to have a profound influence on brain activation in a wide range of vertebrate species. Best studied in songbirds, when males sing undirected song, the level of neural activity and expression ...
The short and long of it: neural correlates of temporal-order memory for autobiographical events.
(J Cogn Neurosci, 2008-07)
Previous functional neuroimaging studies of temporal-order memory have investigated memory for laboratory stimuli that are causally unrelated and poor in sensory detail. In contrast, the present functional magnetic resonance ...
Faces evoke spatially differentiated patterns of BOLD activation and deactivation.
Using fMRI techniques sensitive to blood oxygen-level dependent (BOLD) contrast, we measured brain activity in participants (n=8) as they viewed images of faces presented periodically within a continuously changing montage ...
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 ...
