Dynamics of visual receptive fields in the macaque frontal eye field.
(J Neurophysiol, 2015-12)
Neuronal receptive fields (RFs) provide the foundation for understanding systems-level sensory processing. In early visual areas, investigators have mapped RFs in detail using stochastic stimuli and sophisticated analytical ...
Building an organic computing device with multiple interconnected brains.
(Scientific reports, 2015-07-09)
Recently, we proposed that Brainets, i.e. networks formed by multiple animal brains, cooperating and exchanging information in real time through direct brain-to-brain interfaces, could provide the core of a new type of computing ...
Simultaneous transcranial magnetic stimulation and single-neuron recording in alert non-human primates.
(Nat Neurosci, 2014-08)
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a widely used, noninvasive method for stimulating nervous tissue, yet its mechanisms of effect are poorly understood. Here we report new methods for studying the influence of TMS ...
Examination of Endogenous Rotund Expression and Function in Developing Drosophila Olfactory System Using CRISPR-Cas9-Mediated Protein Tagging.
(G3 (Bethesda), 2015-10-23)
The zinc-finger protein Rotund (Rn) plays a critical role in controlling the development of the fly olfactory system. However, little is known about its molecular function in vivo. Here, we added protein tags to the rn locus ...
Avian genomes. A flock of genomes. Introduction.
Zebra finches communicate with each other in ways that are more complex than previously thought.
Presynaptic Inputs to Any CNS Projection Neuron Identified by Dual Recombinant Virus Infection.
(PLoS One, 2015)
Although neuroanatomical tracing studies have defined the origin and targets of major projection neurons (PN) of the central nervous system (CNS), there is much less information about the circuits that influence these neurons. ...
Brain evolution by brain pathway duplication.
(Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci, 2015-12-19)
Understanding the mechanisms of evolution of brain pathways for complex behaviours is still in its infancy. Making further advances requires a deeper understanding of brain homologies, novelties and analogies. It also requires ...
Developmental exposure to a complex PAH mixture causes persistent behavioral effects in naive Fundulus heteroclitus (killifish) but not in a population of PAH-adapted killifish.
(Neurotoxicol Teratol, 2016-01)
Acute exposures to some individual polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and complex PAH mixtures are known to cause cardiac malformations and edema in the developing fish embryo. However, the heart is not the only organ ...
The Origin and Diversification of Birds.
(Curr Biol, 2015-10-05)
Birds are one of the most recognizable and diverse groups of modern vertebrates. Over the past two decades, a wealth of new fossil discoveries and phylogenetic and macroevolutionary studies has transformed our understanding ...
