The frequency of voluntary and involuntary autobiographical memories across the life span.
(Mem Cognit, 2009-07)
In the present study, ratings of the memory of an important event from the previous week on the frequency of voluntary and involuntary retrieval, belief in its accuracy, visual imagery, auditory imagery, setting, emotional ...
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 ...
Corollary discharge circuits for stabilizing visual perception
(Encyclopedia of Perception, 2009)
Genome-wide analyses of exonic copy number variants in a family-based study point to novel autism susceptibility genes.
(PLoS Genet, 2009-06)
The genetics underlying the autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) is complex and remains poorly understood. Previous work has demonstrated an important role for structural variation in a subset of cases, but has lacked the resolution ...
Single Neurons and Primate Behavior
(Methods in Mind, 2009)
A comparison of dimensional models of emotion: evidence from emotions, prototypical events, autobiographical memories, and words.
The intensity and valence of 30 emotion terms, 30 events typical of those emotions, and 30 autobiographical memories cued by those emotions were each rated by different groups of 40 undergraduates. A vector model gave a ...
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 ...
Positive emotions enhance recall of peripheral details
(Cognition and Emotion, 2009-03-02)
Emotional arousal and negative affect enhance recall of central aspects of an event. However, the role of discrete emotions in selective memory processing is understudied. Undergraduates were asked to recall and ...
