Proliferation versus Differentiation: Redefining Retinoic Acid’s Role.

Proliferation versus Differentiation: Redefining Retinoic Acid’s Role. Stem Cell Reports. 2018 Jun 05;10(6):1673-1675 Authors: Mosher KI, Schaffer DV Abstract Retinoic acid is commonly used in culture to differentiate stem cells into neurons and has established neural differentiation functions in vivo in developing and adult organisms. In this issue of Stem Cell Reports, Mishra et al. (2018) broaden […]

Sex differences in variability across timescales in BALB/c mice.

Related Articles Sex differences in variability across timescales in BALB/c mice. Biol Sex Differ. 2017;8:7 Authors: Smarr BL, Grant AD, Zucker I, Prendergast BJ, Kriegsfeld LJ Abstract BACKGROUND: Females are markedly underinvestigated in the biological and behavioral sciences due to the presumption that cyclic hormonal changes across the ovulatory cycle introduce excess variability to measures […]

Sensations from a single M-cone depend on the activity of surrounding S-cones.

Related Articles Sensations from a single M-cone depend on the activity of surrounding S-cones. Sci Rep. 2018 Jun 04;8(1):8561 Authors: Schmidt BP, Sabesan R, Tuten WS, Neitz J, Roorda A Abstract Color vision requires the activity of cone photoreceptors to be compared in post-receptoral circuitry. Decades of psychophysical measurements have quantified the nature of these […]

Prefrontal cortex modulates posterior alpha oscillations during top-down guided visual perception.

Related Articles Prefrontal cortex modulates posterior alpha oscillations during top-down guided visual perception. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2017 08 29;114(35):9457-9462 Authors: Helfrich RF, Huang M, Wilson G, Knight RT Abstract Conscious visual perception is proposed to arise from the selective synchronization of functionally specialized but widely distributed cortical areas. It has been […]
