Mapping nonlinear receptive field structure in primate retina at single cone resolution.
The function of a neural circuit is shaped by the computations performed by its interneurons, which in many cases are not easily accessible to experimental investigation. Here, we elucidate the transformation of visual signals ...
Neuroepithelial circuit formed by innervation of sensory enteroendocrine cells

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 ...
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 ...
Neural Effects of rTMS: Single Neuron Recordings From a Rhesus Macaque

Gene loss, adaptive evolution and the co-evolution of plumage coloration genes with opsins in birds.
(BMC Genomics, 2015-10-06)
BACKGROUND: The wide range of complex photic systems observed in birds exemplifies one of their key evolutionary adaptions, a well-developed visual system. However, genomic approaches have yet to be used to disentangle the ...
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 ...
Olfactory Receptor Subgenomes Linked with Broad Ecological Adaptations in Sauropsida.
(Mol Biol Evol, 2015-11)
Olfactory receptors (ORs) govern a prime sensory function. Extant birds have distinct olfactory abilities, but the molecular mechanisms underlining diversification and specialization remain mostly unknown. We explored OR ...
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 ...
The evolving capabilities of rhodopsin-based genetically encoded voltage indicators.
(Curr Opin Chem Biol, 2015-08)
Protein engineering over the past four years has made rhodopsin-based genetically encoded voltage indicators a leading candidate to achieve the task of reporting action potentials from a population of genetically targeted ...
