(J Comp Neurol, 2015-04-15)
Only a few distantly related mammals and birds have the trait of complex vocal learning, which is the ability to imitate novel sounds. This ability is critical for speech acquisition and production in humans, and is attributed ...
Molecular profiling of the developing avian telencephalon: regional timing and brain subdivision continuities.
(J Comp Neurol, 2013-11)
In our companion study (Jarvis et al.  J Comp Neurol. doi: 10.1002/cne.23404) we used quantitative brain molecular profiling to discover that distinct subdivisions in the avian pallium above and below the ventricle ...
