Cortical gamma band synchronization through somatostatin interneurons.

Related Articles Cortical gamma band synchronization through somatostatin interneurons. Nat Neurosci. 2017 May 08;: 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 […]

Stimulus discriminability may bias value-based probabilistic learning.

Related Articles Stimulus discriminability may bias value-based probabilistic learning. PLoS One. 2017;12(5):e0176205 Authors: Schutte I, Slagter HA, Collins AGE, Frank MJ, Kenemans JL Abstract Reinforcement learning tasks are often used to assess participants’ tendency to learn more from the positive or more from the negative consequences of one’s action. However, this assessment often requires comparison […]

Empirical evidence for resource-rational anchoring and adjustment.

Related Articles Empirical evidence for resource-rational anchoring and adjustment. Psychon Bull Rev. 2017 May 08;: Authors: Lieder F, Griffiths TL, M Huys QJ, Goodman ND Abstract People’s estimates of numerical quantities are systematically biased towards their initial guess. This anchoring bias is usually interpreted as sign of human irrationality, but it has recently been suggested […]

Lexical selection with competing distractors: Evidence from left temporal lobe lesions.

Related Articles Lexical selection with competing distractors: Evidence from left temporal lobe lesions. Psychon Bull Rev. 2017 May 08;: Authors: Piai V, Knight RT Abstract According to the competition account of lexical selection in word production, conceptually driven word retrieval involves the activation of a set of candidate words in left temporal cortex and competitive […]

The anchoring bias reflects rational use of cognitive resources.

Related Articles The anchoring bias reflects rational use of cognitive resources. Psychon Bull Rev. 2017 May 08;: Authors: Lieder F, Griffiths TL, M Huys QJ, Goodman ND Abstract Cognitive biases, such as the anchoring bias, pose a serious challenge to rational accounts of human cognition. We investigate whether rational theories can meet this challenge by […]

Relative Spatial Frequency Processing Drives Hemispheric Asymmetry in Conscious Awareness.

Related Articles Relative Spatial Frequency Processing Drives Hemispheric Asymmetry in Conscious Awareness. Front Psychol. 2017;8:559 Authors: Piazza EA, Silver MA Abstract Visual stimuli with different spatial frequencies (SFs) are processed asymmetrically in the two cerebral hemispheres. Specifically, low SFs are processed relatively more efficiently in the right hemisphere than the left hemisphere, whereas high SFs […]

(Near-Infra) Red Means STOP: Shutting Down Cancer with NIR Light.

Related Articles (Near-Infra) Red Means STOP: Shutting Down Cancer with NIR Light. ACS Cent Sci. 2017 Apr 26;3(4):266-268 Authors: Miller EW PMID: 28470040 [PubMed – in process]

Copper regulates cyclic-AMP-dependent lipolysis.

Related Articles Copper regulates cyclic-AMP-dependent lipolysis. Nat Chem Biol. 2016 Aug;12(8):586-92 Authors: Krishnamoorthy L, Cotruvo JA, Chan J, Kaluarachchi H, Muchenditsi A, Pendyala VS, Jia S, Aron AT, Ackerman CM, Wal MN, Guan T, Smaga LP, Farhi SL, New EJ, Lutsenko S, Chang CJ Abstract Cell signaling relies extensively on dynamic pools of redox-inactive metal […]

Beta band oscillations in motor cortex reflect neural population signals that delay movement onset.

Beta band oscillations in motor cortex reflect neural population signals that delay movement onset. Elife. 2017 May 03;6: Authors: Khanna P, Carmena JM Abstract Motor cortical beta oscillations have been reported for decades, yet their behavioral correlates remain disputed. Some studies link beta oscillations to changes in underlying neural activity, but the specific behavioral manifestations […]
