Brain gene regulation by territorial singing behavior in freely ranging songbirds.
To investigate the ecological relevance of brain gene regulation associated with singing behavior in songbirds, we challenged freely ranging song sparrows with conspecific song playbacks within their breeding territories. ...
Properties of word cues for autobiographical memory.
(Psychol Rep, 1997-08)
A sample of 124 words were used to cue autobiographical memories in 120 adults varying in age from 20 to 73 years. Individual words reliably cued autobiographical memories of different ages with different speeds. For all ...
Distribution of important and word-cued autobiographical memories in 20-, 35-, and 70-year-old adults.
(Psychol Aging, 1997-09)
For word-cued autobiographical memories, older adults had an increase, or bump, from the ages 10 to 30. All age groups had fewer memories from childhood than from other years and a power-function retention for memories from ...
Selective expression of insulin-like growth factor II in the songbird brain.
(J Neurosci, 1997-09-15)
Neuronal replacement occurs in the forebrain of juvenile and adult songbirds. To address the molecular processes that govern this replacement, we cloned the zebra finch insulin-like growth factor II (IGF-II) cDNA, a factor ...
The distribution of autobiographical memories across the lifespan.
(Mem Cognit, 1997-11)
Words were used to cue autobiographical memories from 20- and 70-year-old subjects. Both groups showed a decrease in memories from the childhood years and a power-function retention function for their most recent 10 years. ...
