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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Policy Adjustment in a Dynamic Economic Game
Making sequential decisions to harvest rewards is a notoriously difficult problem. One difficulty is that the real world is not stationary and the reward expected from a contemplated action may depend in complex ways on ...
Ready…Go: Amplitude of the fMRI Signal Encodes Expectation of Cue Arrival Time
What happens when the brain awaits a signal of uncertain arrival time, as when a sprinter waits for the starting pistol? And what happens just after the starting pistol fires? Using functional magnetic resonance imaging ...
