Bistratified starburst amacrine cells in the Sox2 conditional knockout mouse retina display ON and OFF responses.

Bistratified starburst amacrine cells in the Sox2 conditional knockout mouse retina display ON and OFF responses. J Neurophysiol. 2018 Aug 08;: Authors: Stincic TL, Keeley PW, Reese BE, Taylor WR Abstract Cell-intrinsic factors, in conjunction with environmental signals, guide migration, differentiation and connectivity during early development of neuronal circuits. Within the retina, inhibitory starburst amacrine […]

Neither Cholinergic Nor Dopaminergic Enhancement Improve Spatial Working Memory Precision in Humans.

Related Articles Neither Cholinergic Nor Dopaminergic Enhancement Improve Spatial Working Memory Precision in Humans. Front Neural Circuits. 2017;11:94 Authors: Harewood Smith AN, Challa JA, Silver MA Abstract Acetylcholine and dopamine are neurotransmitters that play multiple important roles in perception and cognition. Pharmacological cholinergic enhancement reduces excitatory receptive field size of neurons in marmoset primary visual […]

S1PR3 mediates itch and pain via distinct TRP channel-dependent pathways.

Related Articles S1PR3 mediates itch and pain via distinct TRP channel-dependent pathways. J Neurosci. 2018 Aug 06;: Authors: Hill RZ, Morita T, Brem RB, Bautista DM Abstract Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) is a bioactive signaling lipid associated with a variety of chronic pain and itch disorders. S1P signaling has been linked to cutaneous pain, but its […]

Evaluation of SLIce Dithered Enhanced Resolution Simultaneous MultiSlice (SLIDER-SMS) for human fMRI.

Related Articles Evaluation of SLIce Dithered Enhanced Resolution Simultaneous MultiSlice (SLIDER-SMS) for human fMRI. Neuroimage. 2018 Jan 01;164:164-171 Authors: Vu AT, Beckett A, Setsompop K, Feinberg DA Abstract High isotropic resolution fMRI is challenging primarily due to long repetition times (TR) and insufficient SNR, especially at lower field strengths. Recently, Simultaneous Multi-Slice (SMS) imaging with […]

Pushing the limits of ultra-high resolution human brain imaging with SMS-EPI demonstrated for columnar level fMRI.

Related Articles Pushing the limits of ultra-high resolution human brain imaging with SMS-EPI demonstrated for columnar level fMRI. Neuroimage. 2018 Jan 01;164:155-163 Authors: Feinberg DA, Vu AT, Beckett A Abstract Encoding higher spatial resolution in simultaneous multi-slice (SMS) EPI is highly dependent on gradient performance, high density receiver coil arrays and pulse sequence optimization. We […]

Both saccadic and manual responses in the amblyopic eye of strabismics are irreducibly delayed.

Related Articles Both saccadic and manual responses in the amblyopic eye of strabismics are irreducibly delayed. J Vis. 2018 03 01;18(3):20 Authors: Gambacorta C, Ding J, McKee SP, Levi DM Abstract Abnormal early visual development can result in a constellation of neural and visual deficits collectively known as amblyopia. Among the many deficits, a common […]
