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 ...
Analysis of the mouse transcriptome for genes involved in the function of the nervous system.
(Genome Res, 2003-06)
We analyzed the mouse Representative Transcript and Protein Set for molecules involved in brain function. We found full-length cDNAs of many known brain genes and discovered new members of known brain gene families, including ...
Exploring the role of the substantia nigra pars reticulata in eye movements.
Experiments that demonstrated a role for the substantia nigra in eye movements have played an important role in our understanding of the function of the basal ganglia in behavior more broadly. In this review we explore more ...
Shifting attention to neurons.
(Trends Cogn Sci, 2010-09)
Influence of network topology and data collection on network inference.
(Pac Symp Biocomput, 2003)
We recently developed an approach for testing the accuracy of network inference algorithms by applying them to biologically realistic simulations with known network topology. Here, we seek to determine the degree to which ...
Corollary discharge circuits in the primate brain.
(Curr Opin Neurobiol, 2008-12)
Movements are necessary to engage the world, but every movement results in sensorimotor ambiguity. Self-movements cause changes to sensory inflow as well as changes in the positions of objects relative to motor effectors ...
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 ...
The exon junction complex component Magoh controls brain size by regulating neural stem cell division.
(Nat Neurosci, 2010-05)
Brain structure and size require precise division of neural stem cells (NSCs), which self-renew and generate intermediate neural progenitors (INPs) and neurons. The factors that regulate NSCs remain poorly understood, and ...
