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 ...
The 70-kDa heat shock cognate protein (Hsc73) gene is enhanced by ovarian hormones in the ventromedial hypothalamus.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1999-02-16)
Estrogen (E) and progesterone (P) orchestrate many cellular responses involved in female reproductive physiology, including reproductive behaviors. E- and P-binding neurons important for lordosis behavior have been located ...
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 ...
Pinning down response inhibition in the brain--conjunction analyses of the Stop-signal task.
Successful behavior requires a finely-tuned interplay of initiating and inhibiting motor programs to react effectively to constantly changing environmental demands. One particularly useful paradigm for investigating inhibitory ...
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 ...
Sound the alarm: fraud in neuroscience.
We expect scientists to follow a code of honor and conduct and to report their research honestly and accurately, but so-called scientific misconduct, which includes plagiarism, faked data, and altered images, has led to ...
Probabilistic inference under time pressure leads to a cortical-to-subcortical shift in decision evidence integration
Real-life decision-making often involves combining multiple probabilistic sources of information under finite time and cognitive resources. To mitigate these pressures, people “satisfice”, foregoing a full evaluation of ...
