Tropism of engineered and evolved recombinant AAV serotypes in the rd1 mouse and ex vivo primate retina.

Tropism of engineered and evolved recombinant AAV serotypes in the rd1 mouse and ex vivo primate retina. Gene Ther. 2017 Sep 05;: Authors: Hickey DG, Edwards TL, Barnard AR, Singh MS, de Silva SR, McClements ME, Flannery JG, Hankins MW, MacLaren RE Abstract There is much debate on the adeno-associated virus (AAV) serotype that best […]

Patterns of hypothalamic GnIH change over the reproductive period in starlings and rats.

Related Articles Patterns of hypothalamic GnIH change over the reproductive period in starlings and rats. Gen Comp Endocrinol. 2016 Oct 01;237:140-146 Authors: Calisi RM, Geraghty AC, Avila A, Kaufer D, Bentley GE, Wingfield JC Abstract Gonadotropin inhibitory hormone (GnIH) exerts powerful inhibitory effects on various levels of the vertebrate hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (reproductive) axis, yet little is […]

Related Articles Identification of preoptic sleep neurons using retrograde labelling and gene profiling. Nature. 2017 05 25;545(7655):477-481 Authors: Chung S, Weber F, Zhong P, Tan CL, Nguyen TN, Beier KT, Hörmann N, Chang WC, Zhang Z, Do JP, Yao S, Krashes MJ, Tasic B, Cetin A, Zeng H, Knight ZA, Luo L, Dan Y Abstract […]

Brain Changes Following Executive Control Training in Older Adults.

Brain Changes Following Executive Control Training in Older Adults. Neurorehabil Neural Repair. 2017 Sep 01;:1545968317728580 Authors: Adnan A, Chen AJW, Novakovic-Agopian T, D’Esposito M, Turner GR Abstract BACKGROUND: While older adults are able to attend to goal-relevant information, the capacity to ignore irrelevant or distracting information declines with advancing age. This decline in selective attention […]

Susceptibility tensor imaging and tractography of collagen fibrils in the articular cartilage.

Susceptibility tensor imaging and tractography of collagen fibrils in the articular cartilage. Magn Reson Med. 2017 Aug 30;: Authors: Wei H, Gibbs E, Zhao P, Wang N, Cofer GP, Zhang Y, Johnson GA, Liu C Abstract PURPOSE: To investigate the B0 orientation-dependent magnetic susceptibility of collagen fibrils within the articular cartilage and to determine whether […]

Synaptic Mechanisms of Feature Coding in the Visual Cortex of Awake Mice.

Synaptic Mechanisms of Feature Coding in the Visual Cortex of Awake Mice. Neuron. 2017 Aug 30;95(5):1147-1159.e4 Authors: Adesnik H Abstract The synaptic mechanisms of feature coding in the visual cortex are poorly understood, particularly in awake animals. The ratio between excitation (E) and inhibition (I) might be constant across stimulus space, controlling only the gain […]

Sources of developmental change in the efficiency of information search.

Related Articles Sources of developmental change in the efficiency of information search. Dev Psychol. 2016 Dec;52(12):2159-2173 Authors: Ruggeri A, Lombrozo T, Griffiths TL, Xu F Abstract Children are active learners: they learn not only from the information people offer and the evidence they happen to observe, but by actively seeking information. However, children’s information search […]

Delay activity of specific prefrontal interneuron subtypes modulates memory-guided behavior.

Related Articles Delay activity of specific prefrontal interneuron subtypes modulates memory-guided behavior. Nat Neurosci. 2017 Jun;20(6):854-863 Authors: Kamigaki T, Dan Y Abstract Memory-guided behavior requires maintenance of task-relevant information without sensory input, but the underlying circuit mechanism remains unclear. Calcium imaging in mice performing a delayed Go or No-Go task revealed robust delay activity in […]

Cortical gamma band synchronization through somatostatin interneurons.

Related Articles Cortical gamma band synchronization through somatostatin interneurons. Nat Neurosci. 2017 Jul;20(7):951-959 Authors: Veit J, Hakim R, Jadi MP, Sejnowski TJ, Adesnik H Abstract Gamma band rhythms may synchronize distributed cell assemblies to facilitate information transfer within and across brain areas, yet their underlying mechanisms remain hotly debated. Most circuit models postulate that soma-targeting […]
