Impact of baseline neurocognitive functioning on outcomes following rehabilitation of executive function training for veterans with history of traumatic brain injury.

Impact of baseline neurocognitive functioning on outcomes following rehabilitation of executive function training for veterans with history of traumatic brain injury. Appl Neuropsychol Adult. 2018 Oct 08;:1-13 Authors: Kornblith E, Abrams G, Chen AJ, Burciaga J, D’Esposito M, Novakovic-Agopian T Abstract Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is common among Veterans, and sequelae frequently include deficits in […]

Geometry-Dependent Arrhythmias in Electrically Excitable Tissues.

Geometry-Dependent Arrhythmias in Electrically Excitable Tissues. Cell Syst. 2018 Sep 27;: Authors: McNamara HM, Dodson S, Huang YL, Miller EW, Sandstede B, Cohen AE Abstract Little is known about how individual cells sense the macroscopic geometry of their tissue environment. Here, we explore whether long-range electrical signaling can convey information on tissue geometry to individual […]

A hierarchical anti-Hebbian network model for the formation of spatial cells in three-dimensional space.

Related Articles A hierarchical anti-Hebbian network model for the formation of spatial cells in three-dimensional space. Nat Commun. 2018 Oct 02;9(1):4046 Authors: Soman K, Chakravarthy S, Yartsev MM Abstract Three-dimensional (3D) spatial cells in the mammalian hippocampal formation are believed to support the existence of 3D cognitive maps. Modeling studies are crucial to comprehend the […]

Decoding Cognitive Processes from Neural Ensembles.

Related Articles Decoding Cognitive Processes from Neural Ensembles. Trends Cogn Sci. 2018 Sep 29;: Authors: Wallis JD Abstract An intrinsic difficulty in studying cognitive processes is that they are unobservable states that exist in between observable responses to the sensory environment. Cognitive states must be inferred from indirect behavioral measures. Neuroscience potentially provides the tools […]

The diverse club.

Related Articles The diverse club. Nat Commun. 2017 11 02;8(1):1277 Authors: Bertolero MA, Yeo BTT, D’Esposito M Abstract A complex system can be represented and analyzed as a network, where nodes represent the units of the network and edges represent connections between those units. For example, a brain network represents neurons as nodes and axons […]

Invariant errors reveal limitations in motor correction rather than constraints on error sensitivity.

Invariant errors reveal limitations in motor correction rather than constraints on error sensitivity. Commun Biol. 2018;1:19 Authors: Kim HE, Morehead JR, Parvin DE, Moazzezi R, Ivry RB Abstract Implicit sensorimotor adaptation is traditionally described as a process of error reduction, whereby a fraction of the error is corrected for with each movement. Here, in our […]
