Spontaneous eye blink rate and dopamine synthesis capacity: Preliminary evidence for an absence of positive correlation.

Spontaneous eye blink rate and dopamine synthesis capacity: Preliminary evidence for an absence of positive correlation. Eur J Neurosci. 2018 Mar 07;: Authors: Sescousse G, Ligneul R, van Holst RJ, Janssen LK, de Boer F, Janssen M, Berry AS, Jagust WJ, Cools R Abstract Dopamine is central to a number of cognitive functions and brain […]

Interfacial engineering in graphene bandgap.

Interfacial engineering in graphene bandgap. Chem Soc Rev. 2018 Mar 07;: Authors: Xu X, Liu C, Sun Z, Cao T, Zhang Z, Wang E, Liu Z, Liu K Abstract Graphene exhibits superior mechanical strength, high thermal conductivity, strong light-matter interactions, and, in particular, exceptional electronic properties. These merits make graphene an outstanding material for numerous […]

Engineered hydrogels increase the post-transplantation survival of encapsulated hESC-derived midbrain dopaminergic neurons.

Related Articles Engineered hydrogels increase the post-transplantation survival of encapsulated hESC-derived midbrain dopaminergic neurons. Biomaterials. 2017 Aug;136:1-11 Authors: Adil MM, Vazin T, Ananthanarayanan B, Rodrigues GMC, Rao AT, Kulkarni RU, Miller EW, Kumar S, Schaffer DV Abstract Cell replacement therapies have broad biomedical potential; however, low cell survival and poor functional integration post-transplantation are major […]

Metallomics. 2018 Mar 06;: Authors: Ackerman CM, Weber PK, Xiao T, Thai B, Kuo TJ, Zhang E, Pett-Ridge J, Chang CJ Abstract Copper is essential for eukaryotic life, and animals must acquire this nutrient through […]

Amyloid and tau PET demonstrate region-specific associations in normal older people.

Related Articles Amyloid and tau PET demonstrate region-specific associations in normal older people. Neuroimage. 2017 Apr 15;150:191-199 Authors: Lockhart SN, Schöll M, Baker SL, Ayakta N, Swinnerton KN, Bell RK, Mellinger TJ, Shah VD, O’Neil JP, Janabi M, Jagust WJ Abstract β-amyloid (Aβ) and tau pathology become increasingly prevalent with age, however, the spatial relationship […]

Sequential Steps of CRAC Channel Activation.

Related Articles Sequential Steps of CRAC Channel Activation. Cell Rep. 2017 May 30;19(9):1929-1939 Authors: Palty R, Fu Z, Isacoff EY Abstract Interaction between the endoplasmic reticulum protein STIM1 and the plasma membrane channel ORAI1 generates calcium signals that are central for diverse cellular functions. How STIM1 binds and activates ORAI1 remains poorly understood. Using electrophysiological, […]

Volitional Modulation of Primary Visual Cortex Activity Requires the Basal Ganglia.

Related Articles Volitional Modulation of Primary Visual Cortex Activity Requires the Basal Ganglia. Neuron. 2018 Feb 22;: Authors: Neely RM, Koralek AC, Athalye VR, Costa RM, Carmena JM Abstract Animals acquire behaviors through instrumental conditioning. Brain-machine interfaces have used instrumental conditioning to reinforce patterns of neural activity directly, especially in frontal and motor cortices, which […]

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

Related Articles Beta band oscillations in motor cortex reflect neural population signals that delay movement onset. Elife. 2017 05 03;6: Authors: Khanna P, Carmena JM Abstract Motor cortical beta oscillations have been reported for decades, yet their behavioral correlates remain unresolved. Some studies link beta oscillations to changes in underlying neural activity, but the specific […]
