Medial Orbitofrontal Cortex, Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex, and Hippocampus Differentially Represent the Event Saliency.

Medial Orbitofrontal Cortex, Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex, and Hippocampus Differentially Represent the Event Saliency. J Cogn Neurosci. 2019 Mar 18;:1-11 Authors: Jafarpour A, Griffin S, Lin JJ, Knight RT Abstract Two primary functions attributed to the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex (pFC) network are retaining the temporal and spatial associations of events and detecting deviant events. It […]

Virtual slice concept for improved simultaneous multi-slice MRI employing an extended leakage constraint.

Virtual slice concept for improved simultaneous multi-slice MRI employing an extended leakage constraint. Magn Reson Med. 2019 Mar 18;: Authors: Park S, Chen L, Beckett A, Feinberg DA Abstract PURPOSE: To develop a novel, simultaneous multi-slice (SMS) reconstruction that extends an inter-slice leakage constraint to intra-slice aliasing with a virtual slice concept for artifact reduction. […]

Retinoic Acid Induces Hyperactivity, and Blocking Its Receptor Unmasks Light Responses and Augments Vision in Retinal Degeneration.

Related Articles Retinoic Acid Induces Hyperactivity, and Blocking Its Receptor Unmasks Light Responses and Augments Vision in Retinal Degeneration. Neuron. 2019 Mar 08;: Authors: Telias M, Denlinger B, Helft Z, Thornton C, Beckwith-Cohen B, Kramer RH Abstract Light responses are initiated in photoreceptors, processed by interneurons, and synaptically transmitted to retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), which […]
