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 ...
Avian brains and a new understanding of vertebrate brain evolution.
(Nat Rev Neurosci, 2005-02)
We believe that names have a powerful influence on the experiments we do and the way in which we think. For this reason, and in the light of new evidence about the function and evolution of the vertebrate brain, an international ...
Global view of the functional molecular organization of the avian cerebrum: mirror images and functional columns.
(J Comp Neurol, 2013-11)
Based on quantitative cluster analyses of 52 constitutively expressed or behaviorally regulated genes in 23 brain regions, we present a global view of telencephalic organization of birds. The patterns of constitutively expressed ...
Revised nomenclature for avian telencephalon and some related brainstem nuclei.
(J Comp Neurol, 2004-05-31)
The standard nomenclature that has been used for many telencephalic and related brainstem structures in birds is based on flawed assumptions of homology to mammals. In particular, the outdated terminology implies that most ...
