A Foxp2 Mutation Implicated in Human Speech Deficits Alters Sequencing of Ultrasonic Vocalizations in Adult Male Mice.
(Front Behav Neurosci, 2016)
Development of proficient spoken language skills is disrupted by mutations of the FOXP2 transcription factor. A heterozygous missense mutation in the KE family causes speech apraxia, involving difficulty producing words ...
Neuroepithelial circuit formed by innervation of sensory enteroendocrine cells
(JOURNAL OF CLINICAL INVESTIGATION, 2015-02)
TRPV channel-mediated calcium transients in nociceptor neurons are dispensable for avoidance behaviour.
(Nat Commun, 2014-09-02)
Animals need to sense and react to potentially dangerous environments. TRP ion channels participate in nociception, presumably via Ca(2+) influx, in most animal species. However, the relationship between ion permeation and ...
Anti-inflammatory effects of progesterone in lipopolysaccharide-stimulated BV-2 microglia.
(PLoS One, 2014)
Female sex is associated with improved outcome in experimental brain injury models, such as traumatic brain injury, ischemic stroke, and intracerebral hemorrhage. This implies female gonadal steroids may be neuroprotective. ...
The Rational Adolescent: Strategic Information Processing during Decision Making Revealed by Eye Tracking.
(Cogn Dev, 2015-10)
Adolescence is often viewed as a time of irrational, risky decision-making - despite adolescents' competence in other cognitive domains. In this study, we examined the strategies used by adolescents (N=30) and young adults ...
Small molecule dual-inhibitors of TRPV4 and TRPA1 for attenuation of inflammation and pain.
(Sci Rep, 2016-06-01)
TRPV4 ion channels represent osmo-mechano-TRP channels with pleiotropic function and wide-spread expression. One of the critical functions of TRPV4 in this spectrum is its involvement in pain and inflammation. However, few ...
Dopamine regulation of human speech and bird song: a critical review.
(Brain Lang, 2012-09)
To understand the neural basis of human speech control, extensive research has been done using a variety of methodologies in a range of experimental models. Nevertheless, several critical questions about learned vocal motor ...
Global View of the Functional Molecular Organization of the Avian Cerebrum: Mirror Images and Functional Columns
(JOURNAL OF COMPARATIVE NEUROLOGY, 2013-11)
Exploring the effects of image persistence in low frame rate virtual environments
(2015 IEEE Virtual Reality Conference, VR 2015 - Proceedings, 2015-08-25)
© 2015 IEEE.In virtual reality applications, there is an aim to provide real time graphics which run at high refresh rates. However, there are many situations in which this is not possible due to simulation or rendering ...
Evolutionary genomics and adaptive evolution of the Hedgehog gene family (Shh, Ihh and Dhh) in vertebrates.
(PLoS One, 2014)
The Hedgehog (Hh) gene family codes for a class of secreted proteins composed of two active domains that act as signalling molecules during embryo development, namely for the development of the nervous and skeletal systems ...
