Moderate Stress-Induced Social Bonding and Oxytocin Signaling are Disrupted by Predator Odor in Male Rats.

Related Articles Moderate Stress-Induced Social Bonding and Oxytocin Signaling are Disrupted by Predator Odor in Male Rats. Neuropsychopharmacology. 2016 Jul;41(8):2160-70 Authors: Muroy SE, Long KL, Kaufer D, Kirby ED Abstract In times of stress, social support can serve as a potent buffering mechanism that enhances resilience. In humans, stress can promote protective affiliative interactions and […]

Recent advances in neural dust: towards a neural interface platform.

Recent advances in neural dust: towards a neural interface platform. Curr Opin Neurobiol. 2018 Jan 10;50:64-71 Authors: Neely RM, Piech DK, Santacruz SR, Maharbiz MM, Carmena JM Abstract The neural dust platform uses ultrasonic power and communication to enable a scalable, wireless, and batteryless system for interfacing with the nervous system. Ultrasound offers several advantages […]

Gustatory Processing in Drosophila melanogaster.

Related Articles Gustatory Processing in Drosophila melanogaster. Annu Rev Entomol. 2018 Jan 07;63:15-30 Authors: Scott K Abstract The ability to identify nutrient-rich food and avoid toxic substances is essential for an animal’s survival. Although olfaction and vision contribute to food detection, the gustatory system acts as a final checkpoint control for food acceptance or rejection. […]

Longitudinal atlas for normative human brain development and aging over the lifespan using quantitative susceptibility mapping.

Longitudinal atlas for normative human brain development and aging over the lifespan using quantitative susceptibility mapping. Neuroimage. 2018 Jan 08;: Authors: Zhang Y, Wei H, Cronin MJ, He N, Yan F, Liu C Abstract Longitudinal brain atlases play an important role in the study of human brain development and cognition. Existing atlases are mainly based […]

A new mechanism of voltage-dependent gating exposed by KV10.1 channels interrupted between voltage sensor and pore.

Related Articles A new mechanism of voltage-dependent gating exposed by KV10.1 channels interrupted between voltage sensor and pore. J Gen Physiol. 2017 May 01;149(5):577-593 Authors: Tomczak AP, Fernández-Trillo J, Bharill S, Papp F, Panyi G, Stühmer W, Isacoff EY, Pardo LA Abstract Voltage-gated ion channels couple transmembrane potential changes to ion flow. Conformational changes in […]

Layer-specific E/I balances during neuronal synchronization in the visual cortex.

Layer-specific E/I balances during neuronal synchronization in the visual cortex. J Physiol. 2018 Jan 05;: Authors: Adesnik H Abstract Rhythmic activity can synchronize neural ensembles within and across cortical layers. While gamma band rhythmicity has been observed in all layers, the laminar sources and functional impacts of neuronal synchronization in the cortex remain incompletely understood. […]

Optogenetic tools for cell biological applications.

Related Articles Optogenetic tools for cell biological applications. J Thorac Dis. 2017 Dec;9(12):4867-4870 Authors: Mukherjee A, Repina NA, Schaffer DV, Kane RS PMID: 29312679 [PubMed]

Rapid brain MRI acquisition techniques at ultra-high fields.

Related Articles Rapid brain MRI acquisition techniques at ultra-high fields. NMR Biomed. 2016 Sep;29(9):1198-221 Authors: Setsompop K, Feinberg DA, Polimeni JR Abstract Ultra-high-field MRI provides large increases in signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) as well as enhancement of several contrast mechanisms in both structural and functional imaging. Combined, these gains result in a substantial boost in contrast-to-noise […]

Slip-Based Coding of Local Shape and Texture in Mouse S1.

Related Articles Slip-Based Coding of Local Shape and Texture in Mouse S1. Neuron. 2017 Dec 28;: Authors: Isett BR, Feasel SH, Lane MA, Feldman DE Abstract Tactile objects have both local geometry (shape) and broader macroscopic texture, but how these different spatial scales are simultaneously encoded during active touch is unknown. In the whisker system, […]
