Integr Comp Biol. 2017 Jul 27;: Authors: Schneider JE, Benton NA, Russo KA, Klingerman CM, Williams WP, Simberlund J, Abdulhay A, Brozek JM, Kriegsfeld LJ Abstract Ingestive and sex behaviors are important for individual survival and reproductive success, but when environmental energy availability is limited, […]

Should a Few Null Findings Falsify Prefrontal Theories of Conscious Perception?

Should a Few Null Findings Falsify Prefrontal Theories of Conscious Perception? J Neurosci. 2017 Oct 04;37(40):9593-9602 Authors: Odegaard B, Knight RT, Lau H Abstract Is activity in prefrontal cortex (PFC) critical for conscious perception? Major theories of consciousness make distinct predictions about the role of PFC, providing an opportunity to arbitrate between these views empirically. […]
