Differentiating sensitivity of post-stimulus undershoot under diffusion weighting: implication of vascular and neuronal hierarchy.
(PLoS One, 2008-08-13)
The widely used blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) signal during brain activation, as measured in typical fMRI methods, is composed of several distinct phases, the last of which, and perhaps the least understood, is ...
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 ...
Analysis of the mouse transcriptome for genes involved in the function of the nervous system.
(Genome Res, 2003-06)
We analyzed the mouse Representative Transcript and Protein Set for molecules involved in brain function. We found full-length cDNAs of many known brain genes and discovered new members of known brain gene families, including ...
Composition and topographic organization of signals sent from the frontal eye field to the superior colliculus.
(J Neurophysiol, 2000-04)
The frontal eye field (FEF) and superior colliculus (SC) contribute to saccadic eye movement generation, and much of the FEF's oculomotor influence may be mediated through the SC. The present study examined the composition ...
Influence of network topology and data collection on network inference.
(Pac Symp Biocomput, 2003)
We recently developed an approach for testing the accuracy of network inference algorithms by applying them to biologically realistic simulations with known network topology. Here, we seek to determine the degree to which ...
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 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 ...
Neuropeptide Y gene polymorphisms confer risk of early-onset atherosclerosis.
(PLoS Genet, 2009-01)
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is a strong candidate gene for coronary artery disease (CAD). We have previously identified genetic linkage to familial CAD in the genomic region of NPY. We performed follow-up genetic, biostatistical, ...
Songbirds and the revised avian brain nomenclature.
(Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2004-06)
It has become increasingly clear that the standard nomenclature for many telencephalic and related brainstem structures of the avian brain is based on flawed once-held assumptions of homology to mammalian brain structures, ...
Corollary discharge circuits for stabilizing visual perception
