Remote Excitation of Neuronal Circuits Using Low- Intensity, Low-Frequency Ultrasound
Possessing the ability to noninvasively elicit brain circuit activity yields immense experimental and therapeutic power. Most currently employed neurostimulation methods rely on the somewhat invasive use of stimulating ...
Alexithymic Trait and Voluntary Control in Healthy Adults
Background: Alexithymia is a personality trait characterized by deficiency in understanding, processing, or describing emotions. Recent studies have revealed that alexithymia is associated with less activation of the ...
Gene expression patterns in visual cortex during the critical period: Synaptic stabilization and reversal by visual deprivation
(National Academy of Sciences, 2008-07)
The mapping of eye-specific, geniculocortical inputs to primary visual cortex (V1) is highly sensitive to the balance of correlated activity between the two eyes during a restricted postnatal critical period for ocular ...
Molecular mechanisms of experience-dependent plasticity in visual cortex
(Royal Society, 2008)
A remarkable amount of our current knowledge of mechanisms underlying experience-dependent plasticity during cortical development comes from study of the mammalian visual cortex. Recent advances in high-resolution cellular ...
Laminins promote postsynaptic maturation by an autocrine mechanism at the neuromuscular junction
(The Rockefeller University Press, 2008-09-15)
A prominent feature of synaptic maturation at the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) is the topological transformation of the acetylcholine receptor (AChR)-rich postsynaptic membrane from an ovoid plaque into a complex array of ...
