Xenon and sevoflurane provide analgesia during labor and fetal brain protection in a perinatal rat model of hypoxia-ischemia.
(PloS one, 2012-01)
It is not possible to identify all pregnancies at risk of neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). Many women use some form of analgesia during childbirth and some anesthetic agents have been shown to be neuroprotective ...
The time course of segmentation and cue-selectivity in the human visual cortex.
(PLoS One, 2012)
Texture discontinuities are a fundamental cue by which the visual system segments objects from their background. The neural mechanisms supporting texture-based segmentation are therefore critical to visual perception and ...
The influence of different Stop-signal response time estimation procedures on behavior-behavior and brain-behavior correlations.
(Behav Brain Res, 2012-04-01)
The fundamental cognitive-control function of inhibitory control over motor behavior has been extensively investigated using the Stop-signal task. The critical behavioral parameter describing stopping efficacy is the Stop-signal ...
The architecture of cross-hemispheric communication in the aging brain: linking behavior to functional and structural connectivity.
(Cereb Cortex, 2012-01)
Contralateral recruitment remains a controversial phenomenon in both the clinical and normative populations. To investigate the neural correlates of this phenomenon, we explored the tendency for older adults to recruit prefrontal ...
Neural systems for guilt from actions affecting self versus others.
Guilt is a core emotion governing social behavior by promoting compliance with social norms or self-imposed standards. The goal of this study was to contrast guilty responses to actions that affect self versus others, since ...
