Metabolic brain networks in aging and preclinical Alzheimer’s disease.

Related Articles Metabolic brain networks in aging and preclinical Alzheimer’s disease. Neuroimage Clin. 2018;17:987-999 Authors: Arnemann KL, Stöber F, Narayan S, Rabinovici GD, Jagust WJ Abstract Metabolic brain networks can provide insight into the network processes underlying progression from healthy aging to Alzheimer’s disease. We explore the effect of two Alzheimer’s disease risk factors, amyloid-β […]

A Motor Theory of Sleep-Wake Control: Arousal-Action Circuit.

A Motor Theory of Sleep-Wake Control: Arousal-Action Circuit. Annu Rev Neurosci. 2019 Jan 30;: Authors: Liu D, Dan Y Abstract Wakefulness, rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, and non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep are characterized by distinct electroencephalogram (EEG), electromyogram (EMG), and autonomic profiles. The circuit mechanism coordinating these changes during sleep-wake transitions remains poorly understood. […]

clusterExperiment and RSEC: A Bioconductor package and framework for clustering of single-cell and other large gene expression datasets.

Related Articles clusterExperiment and RSEC: A Bioconductor package and framework for clustering of single-cell and other large gene expression datasets. PLoS Comput Biol. 2018 09;14(9):e1006378 Authors: Risso D, Purvis L, Fletcher RB, Das D, Ngai J, Dudoit S, Purdom E Abstract Clustering of genes and/or samples is a common task in gene expression analysis. The […]

The pain of sleep loss: A brain characterization in humans.

Related Articles The pain of sleep loss: A brain characterization in humans. J Neurosci. 2019 Jan 28;: Authors: Krause AJ, Prather AA, Wager TD, Lindquist MA, Walker MP Abstract Sleep loss increases the experience of pain. However, the brain mechanisms underlying altered pain processing following sleep deprivation are unknown. Moreover, it remains unclear whether ecologically […]

New opportunities for fracture healing detection: Impedance spectroscopy measurements correlate to tissue composition in fractures.

Related Articles New opportunities for fracture healing detection: Impedance spectroscopy measurements correlate to tissue composition in fractures. J Orthop Res. 2017 12;35(12):2620-2629 Authors: Lin MC, Yang F, Herfat ST, Bahney CS, Marmor M, Maharbiz MM Abstract Accurate evaluation of fracture healing is important for clinical decisions on when to begin weight-bearing and when early intervention […]

Spike-timing-dependent ensemble encoding by non-classically responsive cortical neurons.

Spike-timing-dependent ensemble encoding by non-classically responsive cortical neurons. Elife. 2019 Jan 28;8: Authors: Insanally MN, Carcea I, Field RE, Rodgers CC, DePasquale B, Rajan K, DeWeese MR, Albanna BF, Froemke RC Abstract Neurons recorded in behaving animals often do not discernibly respond to sensory input and are not overtly task-modulated. These non-classically responsive neurons are […]

Effects of tolcapone and bromocriptine on cognitive stability and flexibility.

Related Articles Effects of tolcapone and bromocriptine on cognitive stability and flexibility. Psychopharmacology (Berl). 2018 04;235(4):1295-1305 Authors: Cameron IGM, Wallace DL, Al-Zughoul A, Kayser AS, D’Esposito M Abstract RATIONALE: The prefrontal cortex (PFC) and basal ganglia (BG) have been associated with cognitive stability and cognitive flexibility, respectively. We hypothesized that increasing PFC dopamine tone by […]

Combinatorial Expression of Grp and Neurod6 Defines Dopamine Neuron Populations with Distinct Projection Patterns and Disease Vulnerability.

Related Articles Combinatorial Expression of Grp and Neurod6 Defines Dopamine Neuron Populations with Distinct Projection Patterns and Disease Vulnerability. eNeuro. 2018 May-Jun;5(3): Authors: Kramer DJ, Risso D, Kosillo P, Ngai J, Bateup HS Abstract Midbrain dopamine neurons project to numerous targets throughout the brain to modulate various behaviors and brain states. Within this small population […]

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. 2018 04;25(2):710-717 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 selection […]
