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 […]

Related Articles A directed evolution approach to select for novel Adeno-associated virus capsids on an HIV-1 producer T cell line. J Virol Methods. 2017 12;250:47-54 Authors: Wooley DP, Sharma P, Weinstein JR, Kotha Lakshmi Narayan P, Schaffer DV, Excoffon KJDA Abstract A directed evolution approach was used to select for Adeno-associated virus (AAV) capsids that […]

Causal evidence for lateral prefrontal cortex dynamics supporting cognitive control.

Related Articles Causal evidence for lateral prefrontal cortex dynamics supporting cognitive control. Elife. 2017 Sep 13;6: Authors: Nee DE, D’Esposito M Abstract The lateral prefrontal cortex (LPFC) is essential for higher-level cognition, but the nature of its interactions in supporting cognitive control remains elusive. Previously (Nee and D’Esposito, 2016), dynamic causal modeling (DCM) indicated that […]

A Futile Battle? Protein Quality Control and the Stress of Aging.

Related Articles A Futile Battle? Protein Quality Control and the Stress of Aging. Dev Cell. 2018 Jan 22;44(2):139-163 Authors: Higuchi-Sanabria R, Frankino PA, Paul JW, Tronnes SU, Dillin A Abstract There exists a phenomenon in aging research whereby early life stress can have positive impacts on longevity. The mechanisms underlying these observations suggest a robust, […]

Exaggerated groups: amplification in ensemble coding of temporal and spatial features.

Related Articles Exaggerated groups: amplification in ensemble coding of temporal and spatial features. Proc Biol Sci. 2018 May 30;285(1879): Authors: Kanaya S, Hayashi MJ, Whitney D Abstract The human visual system represents summary statistical information (e.g. average) along many visual dimensions efficiently. While studies have indicated that approximately the square root of the number of […]
