Information-rich localization microscopy through machine learning.

Related Articles Information-rich localization microscopy through machine learning. Nat Commun. 2019 04 30;10(1):1996 Authors: Kim T, Moon S, Xu K Abstract Recent years have witnessed the development of single-molecule localization microscopy as a generic tool for sampling diverse biologically relevant information at the super-resolution level. While current approaches often rely on the target-specific alteration of […]

Nat Chem Biol. 2018 07;14(7):655-663 Authors: Xiao T, Ackerman CM, Carroll EC, Jia S, Hoagland A, Chan J, Thai B, Liu CS, Isacoff EY, Chang CJ Abstract The unusually high demand for metals in the brain, along with insufficient understanding of how their dysregulation […]

The influence of task outcome on implicit motor learning.

The influence of task outcome on implicit motor learning. Elife. 2019 Apr 29;8: Authors: Kim HE, Parvin DE, Ivry RB Abstract Recent studies have demonstrated that task success signals can modulate learning during sensorimotor adaptation tasks, primarily through engaging explicit processes. Here, we examine the influence of task outcome on implicit adaptation, using a reaching […]

Cell. 2019 Apr 22;: Authors: Zhang Z, Zhong P, Hu F, Barger Z, Ren Y, Ding X, Li S, Weber F, Chung S, Palmiter RD, Dan Y Abstract The perioculomotor (pIII) region of the midbrain was postulated as a sleep-regulating center in […]

Attention deficits in Amblyopia.

Attention deficits in Amblyopia. Curr Opin Psychol. 2019 Mar 22;29:199-204 Authors: Verghese P, McKee SP, Levi DM Abstract Amblyopia is a neuro-developmental abnormality associated with deficits in a broad range of both low-level and high-level visual tasks. This is particularly true in strabismic amblyopia where fixation is unstable and there is an increased frequency of […]
