Visual memory loss and autobiographical amnesia: a case study.
Amnesia typically results from trauma to the medial temporal regions that coordinate activation among the disparate areas of cortex that represent the information that make up autobiographical memories. We proposed that ...
Co-activation of the amygdala, hippocampus and inferior frontal gyrus during autobiographical memory retrieval.
Functional MRI was used to investigate the role of medial temporal lobe and inferior frontal lobe regions in autobiographical recall. Prior to scanning, participants generated cue words for 50 autobiographical memories and ...
ARFGAP1 plays a central role in coupling COPI cargo sorting with vesicle formation.
(J Cell Biol, 2005-01-17)
Examining how key components of coat protein I (COPI) transport participate in cargo sorting, we find that, instead of ADP ribosylation factor 1 (ARF1), its GTPase-activating protein (GAP) plays a direct role in promoting ...
A basic-systems approach to autobiographical memory
(Current Directions in Psychological Science, 2005-04-01)
Memory for complex everyday events involving vision, hearing, smell, emotion, narrative, and language cannot be understood without considering the properties of the separate systems that process and store each of these forms ...
Rapid behavioral and genomic responses to social opportunity.
(PLoS Biol, 2005-11)
From primates to bees, social status regulates reproduction. In the cichlid fish Astatotilapia (Haplochromis) burtoni, subordinate males have reduced fertility and must become dominant to reproduce. This increase in sexual ...
Night-vision brain area in migratory songbirds.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2005-06-07)
Twice each year, millions of night-migratory songbirds migrate thousands of kilometers. To find their way, they must process and integrate spatiotemporal information from a variety of cues including the Earth's magnetic ...
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 ...
A tale of three functions: The self-reported uses of autobiographical memory
(Social Cognition, 2005-02-01)
Theories hold that autobiographical memory serves several broad functions (directive, self, and social). In the current study, items were derived from the theoretical literature to create the Thinking About Life Experiences ...
Drivers from the deep: the contribution of collicular input to thalamocortical processing.
(Prog Brain Res, 2005)
A traditional view of the thalamus is that it is a relay station which receives sensory input and conveys this information to cortex. This sensory input determines most of the properties of first order thalamic neurons, ...
Native Seychelles tortoises or Aldabran imports? The importance of radiocarbon dating for ancient DNA studies
