Age- and performance-related differences in hippocampal contributions to episodic retrieval.

Related Articles Age- and performance-related differences in hippocampal contributions to episodic retrieval. Dev Cogn Neurosci. 2016 Jun;19:42-50 Authors: Sastre M, Wendelken C, Lee JK, Bunge SA, Ghetti S Abstract The goal of the present study was to investigate whether hippocampal contribution to episodic memory retrieval varies as a function of age (8-9 versus 10-11 versus […]

Photopharmacological control of bipolar cells restores visual function in blind mice.

Related Articles Photopharmacological control of bipolar cells restores visual function in blind mice. J Clin Invest. 2017 Jun 30;127(7):2598-2611 Authors: Laprell L, Tochitsky I, Kaur K, Manookin MB, Stein M, Barber DM, Schön C, Michalakis S, Biel M, Kramer RH, Sumser MP, Trauner D, Van Gelder RN Abstract Photopharmacological control of neuronal activity using synthetic […]

COPII-coated membranes function as transport carriers of intracellular procollagen I.

Related Articles COPII-coated membranes function as transport carriers of intracellular procollagen I. J Cell Biol. 2017 Jun 05;216(6):1745-1759 Authors: Gorur A, Yuan L, Kenny SJ, Baba S, Xu K, Schekman R Abstract The coat protein complex II (COPII) is essential for the transport of large cargo, such as 300-nm procollagen I (PC1) molecules, from the […]

A restless night makes for a rising tide of amyloid.

Related Articles A restless night makes for a rising tide of amyloid. Brain. 2017 Aug 01;140(8):2066-2069 Authors: Mander BA, Winer JR, Walker MP PMID: 28899024 [PubMed – in process]

Causal evidence for lateral prefrontal cortex dynamics supporting cognitive control.

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 how its interactions support cognitive control remains elusive. Previously (Nee and D’Esposito, 2016), dynamic causal modeling (DCM) indicated that mid LPFC integrates abstract, rostral […]

Patients with focal cerebellar lesions show reduced auditory cortex activation during silent reading.

Related Articles Patients with focal cerebellar lesions show reduced auditory cortex activation during silent reading. Brain Lang. 2016 Oct;161:18-27 Authors: Moberget T, Hilland E, Andersson S, Lundar T, Due-Tønnessen BJ, Heldal A, Ivry RB, Endestad T Abstract Functional neuroimaging studies consistently report language-related cerebellar activations, but evidence from the clinical literature is less conclusive. Here, […]

The UPR(ER): Sensor and Coordinator of Organismal Homeostasis.

Related Articles The UPR(ER): Sensor and Coordinator of Organismal Homeostasis. Mol Cell. 2017 Jun 15;66(6):761-771 Authors: Frakes AE, Dillin A Abstract Life is stressful. Organisms are repeatedly exposed to stressors that disrupt protein homeostasis (proteostasis), resulting in protein misfolding and aggregation. To sense and respond to proteotoxic perturbations, cells have evolved compartment-specific stress responses, such […]

Ensemble Perception.

Ensemble Perception. Annu Rev Psychol. 2017 Sep 11;: Authors: Whitney D, Yamanashi Leib A Abstract To understand visual consciousness, we must understand how the brain represents ensembles of objects at many levels of perceptual analysis. Ensemble perception refers to the visual system’s ability to extract summary statistical information from groups of similar objects-often in a […]

Lesion evidence for a critical role of left posterior but not frontal areas in alpha-beta power decreases during context-driven word production.

Lesion evidence for a critical role of left posterior but not frontal areas in alpha-beta power decreases during context-driven word production. Eur J Neurosci. 2017 Sep 09;: Authors: Piai V, Rommers J, Knight RT Abstract Different frequency bands in the electroencephalogram are postulated to support distinct language functions. Studies have suggested that alpha-beta power decreases […]
