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 ...
The distribution of early childhood memories.
The quantitative distribution of autobiographical memories for the first decade of life is described. The distribution, based on over 11,000 autobiographical memories from age 10 and younger from published studies, is nearly ...
Olfactory conditioning facilitates diet transition in human infants.
(Dev Psychobiol, 2000-11)
We evaluated whether Pavlovian conditioning methods could be used to increase the ingestion of non-preferred solutions by formula-fed human infants. In baseline measures, 5-7 month old infants sucked less frequently and ...
Eye fields in the frontal lobes of primates.
(Brain Res Brain Res Rev, 2000-04)
Two eye fields have been identified in the frontal lobes of primates: one is situated dorsomedially within the frontal cortex and will be referred to as the eye field within the dorsomedial frontal cortex (DMFC); the other ...
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 ...
The Superior Colliculus and the Cognitive Control of Movement
(The New Cognitive Neurosciences, 2000)
Internal languages of retrieval: the bilingual encoding of memories for the personal past.
(Mem Cognit, 2000-06)
In contrast to most research on bilingual memory that focuses on how words in either lexicon are mapped onto memory for objects and concepts, we focus on memory for events in the personal past. Using a word-cue technique ...
Multiple endocytic pathways of G protein-coupled receptors delineated by GIT1 sensitivity.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2000-02-01)
Recently, we identified a GTPase-activating protein for the ADP ribosylation factor family of small GTP-binding proteins that we call GIT1. This protein initially was identified as an interacting partner for the G protein-coupled ...
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 ...
